MoviTHERM Opens In-House NDT Lab
MoviTHERM announces their in-house non-destructive testing lab that enhances feasibility study capabilities.
IRVINE, Calif., July 28, 2022 - MoviTHERM offers feasibility studies to evaluate applications under real-world conditions. With their expansion of an NDT lab, the company has access to various excitation sources that support varying active thermography non-destructive testing techniques.
"Usually, customers are working with a tight time constraint. And so, we're not just trying to figure out how we're going to detect their defects, but how are we going to detect them quickly," says Nathan Aday, Engineer at MoviTHERM. With in-house studies, the company can better guide customers on what NDT method will work best for their application.
“We can easily switch out the source in the same table and in the same setup do an entirely different experiment and compare the results,” shares Aday. Non-destructive testing techniques available in the lab include lock-in, pulse, transient, and vibro thermography.
In addition to having access to different testing techniques, the company possesses a collection of FLIR infrared cameras to compare different results. Cameras are usually the component that drives up the cost of an NDT system. Acquiring a report with contrasting results is beneficial when deciding what non-destructive testing system to purchase.
"Because we have such a diverse set of inspection techniques, excitation sources, and infrared cameras, we can try everything before we definitively say if something's feasible or not," adds Aday.
MoviTHERM offers feasibility testing as a low-cost and low-risk option to validate inspection applications before committing to the purchase of a complete infrared non-destructive test system. The feasibility fee credit towards the system purchase is an added benefit of the feasibility study.
