Non-destructive testing and inspection (NDT/CND)

You want to carry out non-destructive testing and inspection (NDT/CND) of your materials

What is non-destructive testing?

Non-destructive testing and control (NDT/NDC) is a set of methods for characterizing the integrity of materials without damaging them. These tests can be useful at the time of manufacture, use or maintenance of the structure or material.

X-ray tomography testing

Tomography is a technique for analyzing and testing materials by means of radiation/matter interaction. It enables the construction of 3D images of the test object. Carrying out a tomography test in the laboratory therefore does not involve destroying the sample used.

The non-destructive nature of tomography makes it particularly suitable for certain industrial sectors, such as art and luxury goods, or for manufacturers of bulky objects.

X-ray tomography can be used to analyze material composition and monitor its evolution in relation to external stresses.

AFM testing

The Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) is a high-resolution microscope with a local probe for visualizing not only the topography of a sample’s surface, but also its tribology and mechanical, electrical or chemical behavior.

This method enables point-by-point analysis of the sample surface by scanning a probe consisting of a nanometric tip. This microscope can therefore be used to study objects on a very small scale.
