The Use of NDT for Surface Defects

By |2020-09-11T04:16:00+01:00September 11th, 2020|Categories: Uncategorised|Tags: |

Nondestructive testing (NDT) for surface defects requires solutions that can effectively probe complex surfaces that are rough or include tight corners. Therefore, technicians need a surface-oriented approach—such as eddy current array (ECA)—that can easily overcome the challenges of unconventional contours. However, ECA technology alone is not enough to get the job done. Technicians also need quality [...]
