Eddy Current Testing
APEX's nondestructive eddy current testing equipment and solutions will meet the critical requirements of your unique application and deliver productivity, quality, and safety.
How ET Works
General eddy current applications can be further subdivided into applications involving the measurement of physical property differences, such as flaws and thickness; applications involving the measurement of parameters relating more to conductivity, such as hardness, or applications involving the permeability changes in ferromagnetic parts. These are not clear-cut subdivisions because the physical parameters also affect coil impedance and material conductivity. Heat treatment also affects conductivity in non-ferromagnetic parts and permeability in ferromagnetic parts.

Magnetic Particle Testing
APEX works closely with steel fabricators, metal fabricators, and aluminium machine shops to provide one-on-one quality inspections that are both cost-effective and offer fast turn times for your product. They have a level 4 dye penetrant system that is qualified for use on turbine engine components.
How MT Works
A magnetic field is established in a component made from a ferromagnetic material. The magnetic lines of force travel through the material and exit and re-enter the material at the poles. Defects, such as cracks or voids, cannot support as much flux and force some of the flux outside of the part. Magnetic particles distributed over the component will be attracted to areas of flux leakage and produce a visible indication.
