Visual Inspection (VT) is the examination of parts and welds using visual means.
VT can be used to find surface discontinuities as well as to make sure the part or weld meets the relevant standard or engineering specification. Examples include dimensional analysis of parts, weld size verification, and detecting undercut in welds.
Tools such as calipers, micrometers, fillet gauges, and cam gauges are utilized in visual inspection. Adequate lighting of the inspection area is an important factor in visual examination. Flashlights, magnification, and mirrors are often used to ensure a quality inspection.
We employ both ASNT certified Level II and Level III Visual Inspectors as well as AWS Certified Welding Inspectors (CWI).
