Verifying Grinding Burn! Our Inspection Process

We analyse your parts for thermal rim zone damage. Irrespective of whether this analysis is carried out on site at your company or in the testing laboratory, we can provide you with professional and objective expertise.

Overview of the Inspection Processes

Non-destructive tests:

TestAbbreviationPrincipleBasicsTypical Faults
Radiographical testRTelectromagneticEN444, EN13068, EN16016Foreign inclusions, pores, cracks, bonding errors
Penetration testPTmechanicalEN571-1Pores, cracks (must be open to the surface)
Magneto-inductive methodMImagneticISO 2178Cracks, hardness penetration depth, nitrinding depth
Magnetic particle testMTmagneticISO 9934Pores, cracks (only for ferromagnetic material)
Visual testVTopticalEN 13018, DGZfP Merkblatt, B06Optically visible surface irregularities
Ultrasound testUTmechanicalEN583, DGZfP Merkblatt, B04Cracks, bonding errors, pores, inclusions
