Testing and Measuring Products

Whether you need to measure dimensions or perform some sort of flaw detection on sheet, tube, or pipe, you'll find what you need in this technology area. It discusses measuring coordinates, diameters, and hardnesses; flaw detection using eddy current, ultrasonic, radiographic, and X-ray systems; and using a few other equipment types, such as vision systems and material composition analyzers.
