Fluorescent Penetrant Inspection (FPI) is a type of dye penetrant inspection in which a fluorescent dye is applied to the surface of a non-porous material in order to detect defects that may compromise the integrity or quality of the part in question. The FPI is a non-destructive test that ensures all components are free from defects such as cracks, laps, and porosity. Fort Walton Machining specialists are ready to provide you with these services.
FWM Metal Finishing Division FPI line is supported by an internal system and program qualified by on staff ASNT Level III.
Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI) is NonDestructive Testing (NDT) process for detecting surface and subsurface discontinuities in ferrous materials. The process puts a magnetic field into the part. The presence of a surface or subsurface discontinuity in the material allows the magnetic flux to leak. Ferrous iron particles are applied to the part. If an area of flux leakage is present the particles will be attracted to this area. The particles will build up at the area of leakage and form what is known as an indication. The indication can then be evaluated to determine what it is, what may have caused it, and what action should be taken if any.
