Indian Society for Non-destructive Testing (ISNT)

Industry Parlance

NDT is the keyword for Quality in industries. NDT is used in a variety of settings that covers a wide range of industrial activity, with new NDT methods and applications, being continuously developed. NDT services are not only integrated with Asset Integrity Management (AIM) solutions, but also with Material Testing laboratories and seamlessly fit into Supply Chain services.

Some of the areas where NDT is widely practiced are:

  • Automotive
    • Engine parts
    • Frame
  • Aviation maintenance companies use Nondestructive Testing (NDT) to inspect or detect cracks, flaws or imperfections in engine parts. Aerospace
    • Airframes
      • Spaceframes
    • Powerplants
      • Propellers
      • Reciprocating Engines
      • Gas turbine engines
      • Rocketry
  • Construction
    • Structures
    • Bridges
    • Cover Meter
  • Maintenance, repair and operations
    • Bridges
  • Manufacturing
    • Machine parts
    • Castings and Forgings
