Non-destructive test

Verification for part’s mechanical properties and structural integrity

Our Technological Laboratory, which constantly improves its technologies and the knowledge of the staff operating within it, can provide qualified services for all the tests necessary to verify a part’s mechanical properties and structural integrity.

High professional laboratory team

All the personnel working in the laboratory have level 2 of qualifications in accordance with NAS 410 / EN4179 for the following methods Magnetic, Liquid Penetrant, Induced Currents, Acid Attachment and Ultrasound Inspection. For the Magnetic and Liquid Penetrant methods, the Company has specific personnel with level 3 qualifications in accordance with NAS 410 / EN4179 and with Boeing approval. Since 2006, the NADCAP qualification (with the Merit achievement in 2011) has provided further proof of the high technical quality standards.
