Non-Destructive Testing Services (NDTS), a subsidiary of TUV Rheinland North America, has expanded its sorting and containment service.

A missing component or suspected defect can bring production to a halt.

The manufacturer must store the product and begin sorting to find the source of the problem.

To limit its losses and help meet buyer commitments, the manufacturer often brings in a certified third party to complete the task.

Sorting and containment tackles the time-intensive task of sorting objects and testing parts based on physical make-up, weight, missing or extra components, and discontinuities using non-destructive testing methods.

Once the issue has been addressed, a product can be salvaged and shipped by the manufacturer or third party.

Non-Destructive Testing Services specialises in sorting and containment and recently added new equipment that offers more technically in-depth analysis, saving clients time and money, and minimising product compliance issues.

The new capabilities at Non-Destructive Testing Services include computed radiography that digitally captures e-mailable X-ray images via the Kodak Industrex ACR2000i digital system.

A portable ultrasonic GE Krautkramer MIC-10 hardness tester provides a quick non-destructive method of sorting heat-treated parts on location.

Automated real-time radiography for production-run capabilities is used for small castings, electronic components, missing bearings, and crimped/ broken electrical connections.

The company also offers specialised automation utilising conveyers.

Non-Destructive Testing Services provides high-speed sorting at its laboratory or the customer’s facility, and also provides on-site emergency parts testing and quality assurance.

The sorting and containment service is available 24 hours a day, all year round as an expedited offering.

Non-Destructive Testing Services specialises in sorting and assembly, ISO emergencies and salvage for the aerospace, automotive, foundries, food, military, welding (spot weld), electronic, steel mill, power generation and pharmaceutical markets.

The company can scan the product using a variety of testing methods including real-time X-ray, computed and film radiography, eddy current, hardness, magnetic particle, ultrasonic, liquid penetrant and visual inspection.

Each non-destructive testing method has its strength in determining different discontinuities.
