Destructive and non-destructive testing of materials (NDT)

Modern materials and their continuous evolution have led to the birth of a competitive industrial production. The market demands increasingly complex products to be used in increasingly demanding applications. Even the most advanced production plant will not achieve a satisfactory result if the materials employed do not meet the requirement of the market. As a result, the know-how of the company together with certified quality management systems and the use of high skilled and trained staff play a key role. Testing the quality of materials is for the benefit of our customers' safety.
