Binder Technologie now also offers services in the field of non-destructive testing to external customers. Non-destructive testing (NDT) has a great advantage: it is used to evaluate the qualities of a component without destroying it. NDT can be used on a sample of components for individual investigation or can be used for 100% examination of components in a production quality control system. Not only to reject components with defects, but also to ensure the quality of all components in service.
Digital Radiography Service
For the aviation industry, Binder has NADCAP certification in the field of non-destructive testing for digital radiography (x-ray inspection non-film) and the company obtained customer approval from GKN Aerospace (Sweden). This demonstrates Binder’s commitment to quality and safety while also enhancing customer satisfaction.
The X-ray system used by Binder with 160 KV direct radiation offers short inspection times due to no development time and a high reduction in the number of retakes required. Components up to a length of approx. 1 m can be examined non-destructively for welding defects, inclusions, porosity, corrosion, deposits and cracks.
With the ultrasonic testing devices from Olympus, full volumetric inspections of the components can be guaranteed using high-frequency sound waves. Binder can perform lamination flaw tests, wall thickness measurements and weld seam inspections in the industrial sector. The company also offers mobile testing services at the customer’s site.
FPI (Fluorescent Penetrant Inspection) Service
Soon Binder will also be offering FPI testing at its facility. Components that require the FPI process are usually Safety Critical Components. FPI is a non-destructive testing method that is used to detect linear and non-linear surface indications in components. These surface indications are visible under black light. Components with a total length up to 700mm can be examined. Binder plans to obtain NADCAP certification after completion of the system.
Binder looks forward to receiving inquiries for any new or existing projects.
