苏格兰人建立专职的, in-house metallurgists and quality inspectors implement testing methods that support production, quality control and research and development for our customers. 我们的专业知识包括:

  • Nondestructive examination
  • 破坏性的测试
  • 冶金 review and support
  • 失效分析

Forgings Requiring Nadcap 无损检测

苏格兰人打造’s Nadcap 无损检测 (NDT) certification is not automatically applied to all orders which require NDT. If Nadcap NDT is required, it must be specified on the purchase order.


Guaranteed 质量 Requirements Lower Costs

苏格兰人打造 staffs an inspection team of industry certified personnel trained to use the latest and most advanced equipment in the field. Our on-site NDE services utilize Magnetic Particle, Liquid Penetrant and Ultrasonic 测试 methods that are Nadcap accredited, 当合同. These services guarantee your forgings meet the quality requirements essential for the intended application, 节省时间和金钱.

Nondestructive examination methods

  • Ultrasonic inspection (UT): contact a-scan testing
  • Magnetic particle (MT): wet fluorescent, dry powder
  • Liquid penetrant (PT): water washable fluorescent, visible dye
  • Elemental analysis using optical emission and x-ray fluorescence spectrometry


All personnel performing nondestructive testing at 苏格兰人打造 are certified in accordance with written procedures that meet and exceed the guidelines of ASNT Recommended Practice No. SNT-TC-1A.[1]和NAS - 410.[2]

另外, all of our Level III inspectors are third-party-certified or in the process of becoming certified as ASNT NDT Level III and ASNT ACCP Professional Level III.

Our Nondestructive testing systems is accredited to the very stringent Nadcap 无损检测 conformity assessment.

苏格兰人打造 metallurgists also use an array of mechanical, destructive test methods to understand part performance and material behavior under different load environments. By discovering the elasticity and failure threshold of a part we can ensure part reliability in the field. 

Mechanical testing methods

  • 抗拉
  • 动态撕裂
  • 硬度
  • Crack Tip Opening Displacement (CTOD)*
  • Fracture toughness (KIC, JIC)
  • 疲劳裂纹扩展
  • Charpy impact (700 ft·lbf machines; -321 °F through 200+ °F)
  • Nil-Ductility Transition Temperature (NDT)



Our degreed metallurgical team has more than 175 years of combined experience. Through active participation in numerous industry associations, 包括ASTM, AGMA, 自动对盘及成交系统, FIA and the International 金相学 Society, 苏格兰人打造 stays on the cutting edge of forging technology and advancement.

Metallurgical test methods

At 苏格兰人打造, we know the importance of getting your parts on-time, as expected. 然而, for customers new to procuring forgings, ordering a forging that will meet all specifications for end-use applications may be a challenge, which is why finding a trusted supplier and partner is essential. Our employee-owners are here to ensure your project stays on track with our forgings by offering:

Pro Tip - Did you know near-net shapes can save you time and money? 通常, a customer calls to order a disc, which they will later machine down to a more shaped part. By working with our technically trained sales team you can get as close to your finished product shape as possible to optimize your production process.
