Sofema Online (SOL) considers current tooling and best practices related to aviation & aerospace NDT Inspections

Introduction

The need to ensure high standards of quality and safety during manufacturing, assembly and while in-service is paramount and has led to the development of NDT standards and specifications.

The use of Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) within aviation maintenance and aerospace, in general, continues to increase with the advent of new techniques as well as the increase in data handling and analysis.

Sofema Online (SOL) considers NDT testing of “Composite Material” using Tap Testing Method.

Introduction

Non-destructive testing (NDT) of composite materials typically involves the use of more than one inspection method, including both non-instrumental and instrumental methods.

Visual inspection and tap testing being “entry level” other commonly used methods include ultrasonic inspection, radiography, as well as advanced methods such as thermography and Laser Shearography  (Laser Shearography is an optical measurement technique for Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) and Quality Control applications, commonly used on composites and metallic materials).
