VNIIBT-Drilling Tools acquired new equipment
In April, the new plant for integrated non-destructive testing of rolled stock of length up to 10 meters and diameter up to 350 mm was started up at the Pavlovsk production site of VNIIBT-Drilling Tools. New equipment allows performing the combined magnetic-particle flaw detection with transverse and longitudinal magnetization of parts, which facilitates the detection of longitudinal and transverse, surface and subsurface flaws of the work material. The plant allows the computerized semi-automatic multi-channel ultrasonic testing intended for detecting intrinsic flaws across the whole workpiece.
The software and equipment of the leading Russian and German companies is used in the plant. Operators of the Company received additional training and were certified to operate the new equipment.
