NDT is Non-Destructive Testing.  NDT is a Quality Control inspection process.  Companies that machine, fabricate, weld, print, cast, or forge metal, utilize NDT to find manufacturing defects.  Think aircraft engine and power generation components, oil & gas pipes & couplings, automotive crankshafts and control arms, medical implants, railroad wheels – any product made from metal or cast aluminum would cause severe damage if failure occurred – require NDT.

Companies need NDT to prevent bad parts from shipping to customers.  Bad parts shipped leads to bad reputations, potential liability claims, and probable lost revenue/business. My 30+ years’ experience in aircraft engine quality control and related consumables distribution as well as a decade of focused NDT business leadership, equip me to increase your company’s probability of detecting potential flaws.  I want to help your company improve as well.  If you’re interested then Magna NDT is the solution.
