Bespoke EDM Micro Notching
Bowyer Engineering have the capacity to design, manufacture and notch bespoke ultrasonic, eddy current and radiography NDT (non-destructive testing) inspection standards. NDT is used to evaluate the presence of discontinuities in critical components.
EDM (Electrical Discharge Machining) notching allows artificial defects of known size, shape and orientation to be placed into reference pieces in order that detection / sizing of the NDT process can be assessed. The more accurately the notch can replicate the size, shape and orientation of the defects to be located, the better the detection rate of significant defects.
Micro-notches or fissures can also be placed on parts to seed corrosion in accelerated ageing tests.
