To ensure quality and compliance to specifications, drawings, and models, each manufactured component is subject to various forms of non-destructive testing, included but not limited to:

  • Optical Inspection Techniques
  • CMM (co-ordinate measuring machine)
  • Airflow data collection
  • Water flow testing
  • Surface analysis
  • Fluorescent Penetrant Inspection (FPI) for surfaces
