Corry Forge Company Commissions Advanced NDT Solution

Author: Jeff Nystrom : 09/13/12

The Corry Forge Company today announced the commissioning of an advanced NDT system for the ultrasonic testing of high-performance forged components. The new system integrates automated ultrasonic testing with an authenticated electronic record of the inspection procedures and material condition. The ability to permanently document both inspection results as well as testing parameters in a verifiable format, offers a new level of reliability, efficiency, and confidence in the sourcing of forged components for critical applications.

The system is capable of performing both conventional and multi-phased array ultrasonic inspection procedures. It is configured to simultaneously scan and process the signals from multiple transducers, allowing for comprehensive single-pass efficiency. A flexible range of testing parameters and transducer options are available with the system to meet the most demanding customer specifications. Advanced software allows synchronized scanning to insure continuity, coverage, overlap, and travel throughout the procedure. The data from the inspection and testing parameters are transcribed to a single extensible file for remote witness and permanent archive.

“This system represents the new standard for establishing product compliance and integrity in components that operate under continuous conditions of high-speed, high-pressure, and high-stress,” said Jeff Nystrom, Vice President, Corry Forge Company. “Our leadership with this technology is consistent with our goal of being the reliable forging supplier of choice for our customers.”

The Corry Forge Company, a division of the Ellwood City Forge and member of the Ellwood Group, Inc., is an integrated producer of critical-application forged components for the nuclear, power generation, oil & gas and aerospace industries.
