High-frequency sound waves are introduced into a test object to detect and locate internal discontinuities. Ultrasonic testing is a common nondestructive examination (NDE) technique that is designed to use short, high-frequency ultrasonic waves to identify flaws in a test subject. By emitting specific waves into a subject, our team can test the item by measuring the waves after they have passed through the subject. Based on changes to the waves, internal flaws or other properties of the material can be detected. Our team will use a variety of pulsers, receivers, transducers, and monitors in order to fully test the subject. Based on the results of this nondestructive examination, our team will be able to determine if the subject of the test meets the proper specifications.
