Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing (PAUT)

An advanced method of ultrasonic testing that allows more control of the beam, resulting in the ability to detect flaws in more complex geometry.

Magnetic Particle Testing (MT)

The magnetic particle method can detect both surface and subsurface indications and is used for inspection on ferromagnetic parts.

Case Studies

Aft Terminal Support Fitting Inspection

Veracity utilized linear phased array testing methods to discover flaws in this aft terminal support fitting during an in-lab inspection. This avoided a potential failure of the support fitting and resulted in the client replacing the defective component.

US Army Helicopter Rotor Blade Inspection

Veracity technicians used linear phased array testing methods during an on-site inspection to reveal defects in the surface of the rotor blade. This resulted in the US Army repairing/replacing the defective blades.

Sikorsky Production H53-K Inspection

Veracity tested and proofed a vendor approved phased array ultrasonic technique to inspect components during the quality inspection process of manufacturing. Indications were detected at critical steps of production and saved the customer excessive shipping costs to send to an off-site inspection provider.

KC-153 Corrosion Mapping

In cooperation with a major robotics manufacturer, Veracity custom built a scanner that detects, encodes and maps out wing corrosion problem areas on the Boeing KC-135 tanker aircraft. This effort resulted in an improved inspection process and reduced time for data analysis.
