Inspection

NDT
Eddy-Current and Ultrasonic Testing

Inspection capabilities are an important part of BPC's long-term survival in the industry and for the past 26 years, BPC has provided unsurpassed inspection capabilities. Product inspection capabilities utilizing ultrasonic and eddy-current technologies are used to assure both surface and internal quality requirements.

Grade Verification
Spark and spectrometer testing are used on a regular basis as a means of product grade verification or for material sorting. BPC also provides numerous additional quality assurance functions to assure:

  • Product Straightness
  • Dimensional Control
  • Surface Roughness
  • Hardness
  • Optical Comparison
Roto-bar testing for surface quality
Process Control
Spectrometer testing for grade verification
Optical Comparison for in-process control
Straightness inspection

Opportunities may include:

  • SBQ Steel
  • Bearing Quality
  • Short-Cut-Grind Blanks
  • Critical Applications

In addition to our current long bar testing capabilities on our six surface testing lines
and two surface/internal testing lines, we offer eddy current inspection, ultrasonic inspection
and magnetic particle inspection designed to detect various defects in a formed part and/or short bar.

Bar Processing Corporation can also perform visual inspection to detect gross surface flaws,
grade verification and dimensional inspection.

Bar Processing Corporation, under the direction of its Level III Manager of NDT, has the ability to:
  • 1. Design specific inspection criteria utilizing specialized equipment.
  • 2. Develop testing and inspection procedures to customer specific requirements.

    Bar Processing Corporation NDT inspectors are trained and certified
    to Level I & Level II in accordance to SNT-TC-1A, 1992 edition.
