Non-destructive Evaluation & Testing

Non-destructive Evaluation & Testing

Non-destructive Evaluation is the most critical activity in any composite development programme and its importance in aerospace activities is all the more critical. The role of NDE is not limited to just defect detection alone, but also extends towards refining/re-defining manufacturing processes and adding value to product development. NDE has a key role in ensuring quality and structural integrity thereby guaranteeing reliability and airworthiness of aircraft structures/components. This facility consists ultrasonic C-scan facilities capable of scanning components with doubly curved and complex contours of size up to 9 m x3 m x1.2 m, high resolution video scope, rapid scan linear array system with wheel probe, Digital Radiography, X-Ray Machine etc. capable of carrying out the  NDE inspection of composite structures.
