Visual Inspections Per ASME Nondestructive Testing Handbook 3rd Edition, Volume 10

Applied Technical Services is an independent testing and inspection company who offers quality visual inspections. Our certified NDT experts will observe your test component(s) ensuring it is in conformance to specifications. The inspectors have the knowledge and experience to identify any surface anomalies that are visible directly to the eye or visible indirectly using approved optical instruments. Many times, surface anomalies can be an indicator of structural and mechanical failures ultimately resulting in unsafe and unreliable products.
