Solutions Solving Problems UniWest brings critical solutions to your tough challenges through the use of non-destructive testing. UniWest's engineering team and application-specific approach can provide a turnkey system for applying eddy current and ultrasonic technology to your quality verification program to ensure defect-free materials and products. Whether your special application involves manual inspection in the field, laboratory testing, or integrated in-line production system support, UniWest can provide the resources necessary to offer a complete solution to your special testing needs.
We can help you solve application problems in the areas of:
Surface Crack Detection
Eddy current testing of ferrous and nonferrous metals for inspection of heavy manufacturing equipment, automotive, aerospace, and aeronautics parts, including jet engines, pipe, tube, bar, and wire. See UniWest's US-454A, US-450, and US-525M instruments and ETC scanner.
Subsurface Crack Detection
The UniWest multi-frequency US-454A, US-450, and US-525MU eddy current instruments offer multiple frequencies (from 10Hz to 15 MHz) and multiple probes to enable eddy current array testing to discover cracks before they break the surface of the metal. Applications include inspection of airframes, jet engines, and automotive parts, as well as pipe, tube, bar and wire.
For corrosion inspections. Useful for chemical milling applications such as airframe structures, as well as inspection of power generation equipment, wire, and tubing—wherever material loss may occur. Also useful for inspection of blade coatings, in power generation facilities, and tubing and aerospace applications. See US-454A eddy current instrument.
Conductive Coatings Measurement
To measure thickness of metal-clad materials in production and in field testing for wear of such parts as turbine blades, aerospace engines, automotive components, and silicon wafers and aluminum and copper processor chips. See the US-454A, and US-4500 instruments.
Non-conductive Coatings Measurement
For testing of material with non-conductive coatings, including in production or in field testing for wear of such parts as turbine blades, aerospace engines, computer components, silicon wafers for processor chips. See the US-454A, and US-450 eddy current instruments.
Continuous monitoring for material changes in critical parts such as jet engines, corrosion in railroad tracks and sensors. See The UniWest US-525M instrument and the UniWest Specialty Probes.
Remote visual inspections by means of robotics device that pushes suspect part into a tube for testing US-454A Portable Multi-Frequency ECT Instrument and custom-designed tooling and specialty probes for hard-to-access areas such as turbine blades and jet engines.
In-line identification of aluminum, steel and copper for material sorting, as well as tube and pipe inspection for aircraft and industry. Refer to UniWest's US-525M, and US-454A eddy current instruments.
Hardness comparison and testing for heat-treated materials including automotive parts, See the US-525M and also the US-454A eddy current instruments.
For inspection of internal discontinuities of cast materials to prevent future cracks and breaks. See UniWest US-454A. Widely used in primary metals castings in the automotive industry and heavy industry (R2 wire).
In-Situ Solutions NDT
For field inspection in difficult to reach areas of jet engines, gas turbines, sealed cavities and tank engines. See UniWest's US454A.
