Destructive and Non-Destructive material testing
Non-Destructive material testing (NDT)
Visual testing (VT):
The most commonly used test method that involves the visual observation of the surface of a test object to evaluate the presence of surface discontinuities.
Olympus IPlex FX videoscope,
Various weld gauges, Lupe.
Penetration testing (PT):
For detecting open discontinuities on the surface of the test substance.
MR CHEMIE, Karl Deutsch testing materials.
Magnetic particle testing (MT):
To locate surface and near-surface discontinuities in ferromagnetic materials.
TIEDE TWM 220E and TIEDE TWM 220N manual instruments for magnetic elaboration with movable poles,
Karl Deutsch 42 V magnetic yoke,
JAM – MPI permanent magnets.
Ultrasonic testing (UT):
Uses high frequency sound energy to determine discontinuity, also for flaw detection/evaluation, dimensional measurements, material characterization in the tested material.

Leak testing (LT):
Detecting manufacturing defects which helps verify the integrity of products and improve consumer safety.
CPV4/8 vacuum box testing.
Acoustic Pulse Reflectometry (APR):
Discontinuities are being identified by the reflection of an acoustic pulse.
SONIC V acoustic reflectometry.
Portable hardness testing (HT):
The method is pretty much the same as it is with hardness testing, but in this case the unit can be taken to site and the test can be done locally.
