About Weld seam testing

  • International test standards: Weld seam testing according to SEP, DIN, STM, PI, BS, JIS, ETTC, ENEL, etc.
  • Welding lines: All welding methods such as TIG, laser, HF and ERW welding
  • Materials tested: Ferrous, austenitic, duplex grades, nonferrous aluminum, copper, brass, titanium and german silver
  • Combination inspection: Simultaneous weld seam testing and full-body inspection
  • Line speeds: 0.1-200 m/min (0.3-660 fpm)
  • Tube sizes: 0.5-600 mm (0.2-23½ in)
Eddy current testing readily identifies flaws in the weld seam regardless of what welding procedure is used. The defects are color-marked and the tube is assigned a sort class according to its quality. Test results are fully documented for future reference.PRÜFTECHNIK offers a wide variety of eddy current inspection units that range from the most basic testers to powerful inspection systems with wide-reaching capabilities for integration into central production control systems and 8-channel inspection using multiple coil systems.

Reated Projects

Thick material inspection (TMI)

Application fields

  • Production type: thick-walled tubes with a longitudinal weld seam; welded seams can be tested in their full thickness
  • Materials: austenitic steel, aluminum, br

Continuous drawing line

  • Input control: Identification of bad quality rolled wire (drawing lines for thick wire)
  • Process control: Monitoring of production lines to avoid scrap (medium and fine drawing bloc

Rotational testing

  • Products tested: All seamless products that are round or off-round
  • Production types: Straightening lines, continuous drawing lines, offline final inspection
  • Inspectio

Fine wire

  • Inspection: Continuous inspection using encircling coil
  • Wire characteristics: Diameters down to 0.05 mm; tungsten, molybdenum, etc.
  • Production line: Drawing and rewinding lines
