Baker Testing provides non-destructive testing (NDT) and inspection of cast, forged, rolled and machined products at various stages of manufacture to assure compliance with codes, contracts, and specifications.

NDT Detection of Casting flaws

Casting inspection requires surface and sub-surface testing. We use two complementary methods during inspection to detect various flaws.

Gas holes Cracks
Porosity Cold shuts
Sand Hot tears
Dross Unfused chaplets
Cavities Chills
Foreign material Blow holes
Shrinkage Inclusions Shrinkage tears

Forging and Rolled Materials

Forging and rolled material flaws that are detectable by NDT and destructive testing include forging bursts, cracks, laps, folds, inclusions, flakes, seams, stringers, porosity, tears and flakes.

NDT Techniques for Manufacturing

Qualified technicians apply many NDT test methods - at our labs or in the field - to detect and evaluate both surface and internal discontinuities to identify potential flaws.

Prior to machining, discontinuities like those noted above can be identified, evaluated and culled from production – thus saving cost and time.

After machining and final surface conditioning, testing by non-destructive methods is often required to identify otherwise invisible flaws and discontinuities.
