At Axenics, we might not offer standalone weld testing, but that doesn’t mean we undermine its significance. Anything but that. In fact, quality testing forms an essential cornerstone in all projects we undertake, right from the moment our floor welcomes a new batch of raw materials to the time when your custom fabrications are set and ready to go. 

Our go-to process for quality weld testing involves nondestructive testing (NDT) methods. We execute these tests in-house because we believe in evaluating our production process along the way. This way we can thoroughly inspect our components and assemblies for any possible defects or discrepancies, ensuring your fabricated goods stay untouched while optimizing their working life.

 What is NDT?

Nondestructive testing is a method comprised of the inspection, testing or evaluation of components and assemblies. It is used to find any potential defects and discontinuities, while still maintaining the functionality of the custom fabrication, component or assembly.

NDT is an excellent way to locate surface and sub-surface weld defects prior to a component going into production, which is a proven method to save you both time and money.

Our commitment to NDT as an inherent part of the production process is driven by our desire to protect your delivery and process systems for times to come. The smallest error in a weld can set off a chain reaction of disasters, ruining an entire system, wreaking havoc on your budget, and derailing your schedules. This is precisely why we don’t offer weld testing as an optional extra; it’s an uncompromisable part of every single job we take on at Axenics.

The Importance of Weld Testing

To secure your project’s success, it’s crucial to identify and address any possible leaks. With comprehensive weld testing, you’ll save not only man hours but also potential material costs that could arise from reordering components due to damage.  

Our NDT services encompass a wide range, including: 

  • Visual examination
  • Helium leak detection
  • Radiographic examination
  • Ultrasonic analysis
  • Liquid penetrant inspection

The Role of Visual Weld Testing

Visual checks play an essential role in pinpointing potential leaks and assessing production uniformity. Pairing visual inspections with other NDT methods, such as helium leak testing, allows us to ensure the high-quality and standardized production of your products, regardless of the order volume.  

We evaluate several features during a visual inspection, depending on the material used. While the standards can differ for every project, we typically search for potential trouble spots such as: 

  • Uniformity in materials
  • Material corrosion
  • Cracks in the welds
  • Surface defects
  • Deformation such as banding

Our NDT services meticulously unveil any imperfections in components to prevent any disastrous circumstances impacting your established production systems. Your project’s triumph is our top-most priority, which is reflected in our exceptional weld testing services. We aim to guarantee that the final outcome is not just safe but also promises consistent efficiency.

Weld testing to detect potential leaks is a great way to keep costs under control, as man hours are saved when damage-free components are in place. Plus, the cost of materials can be controlled by not having to re-purchase them once a leak has caused damage to a system Additional NDTs include, liquid penetrant testing, radiographic testing, ultrasonic testing, magnetic particle Testing and other methods.

Social distancing doesn’t mean we don’t work well with others. Sharing a zip code or even a time zone isn’t required for a wonderful partnership, as evidenced in this download.
