Calibration Blocks

Calibration Blocks

SixDe provides custom machining for calibrating NDT processes based on customer requirements conforming to ASME Section V specifications. This requires defects to be machined into the plate, pipe or part that is going to be inspected to simulate the anticipated defects in the material.

 

Any shape is possible – straight, angled, curved, concave or convex either blind or through – using a combination of EDM (wire and sinker) and CNC machining. The custom calibration blocks are used for non-destructive testing using various methods:

 

• Eddy Current Testing (ET)
• Ultrasonic Testing (UT) – Time of Flight Diffraction (TOFD), Phased Array (PA)
• Advanced Ultrasonic Testing (A-UT)
