Non-destructive testing to support defence technology

We provide a range of material testing and advisory services to producers of military assets and munitions. Despite the complexity of defence technology, performance is often founded on non-destructive testing (NDT). Exova can help you to establish your non-destructive testing requirements giving you the confidence needed to move to the next phase of your project.

Non-destructive testing will help you detect defects as geometrical faults, e.g. material thickness, welding defects, bondline defects, delamination, wrinkles, porosity, dry areas, foreign objects, cracks or corrosion.

Confidence through accredited testing and certified inspection

We hold Level  III certificates in all techniques in accordance with EN4179/NAS 410, and all our non-destructive testing inspectors are Level II certified.

Our non-destructive testing capabilities include the implementation of inspection procedures and instructions, non-destructive testing modelling and conventional techniques, procurement and customisation of equipment in production, Level III support, operator training, and on-site inspections. We also provide expertise or equipment to directly support your own operations.

We deploy a number of testing methods including non-destructive testing simulation, radiography testing, ultrasonic testing, penetrant testing, magnetic particle inspection, visual testing, acoustic emissions, leak testing, and shearography.

Non-destructive testing simulation

Using non-destructive testing simulation during early R&D can help you to ensure inspectability of complex geometrical structures during production and for future maintenance. We offer non-destructive testing simulation in UT.

Our non-destructive testing inspection services include expertise in a wide range of techniques:
  • UT - Ultrasonic testing, resonance testing, phased array, immersion testing
  • RT - Radiography, X-ray testing
  • ET - Eddy current testing
  • MT - Magnetic particle testing
  • PT - Penetrant testing
  • VT - Visual testing
  • LT - Leak detection testing
  • AE - Acoustic emission
  • Shearography
  • Thermorgaphy

    Whatever your query, we'll pass it on to our experts and respond within a very short space of time.
