Advanced non-destructive testing (ANDT) comprises a wide range of NDT techniques based on innovative technologies to inspect and analyze anomalies in assets with less disruption to operations. Compared with conventional NDT, it provides quicker results and improves accuracy while being cost-effective.
The establishment of Applus+ RTD itself was an innovation in 1937. At the time, it was the first non-governmental organization worldwide to provide commercial NDT services. Since then, Applus+ has developed several ANDT-patented methods, technologies, applications, and inspection procedures. Our Research & Development department, known as the Technology Centre, works closely with clients to convert challenges into innovative and customized solutions.
Innovation at Applus+ is a combination of vision and knowing the needs of the market. Ideas and achievements were, and still are, the result of cooperation with institutes, universities, and particularly clients seeking specific NDT solutions.
Applus+ has been at the forefront of developing Advanced NDT techniques. Our latest innovations for advanced non-destructive testing are offered exclusively to our clients:
Which Advanced NDT method is better? It depends on the type of evaluation given the properties of the asset, material, component, structure, process or system, challenge, and specification. As per our wide experience, specialized applications speed up the inspection process and can often provide clear results without interrupting your workflow. Our advanced NDT services help reduce overall costs of inspection, decrease maintenance costs, and ensure reliable operating processes for people and the environment.
The major part of the activities within the Technology Centre is aimed at the development, support, and upgrading of advanced products and solutions for the Applus+ operational units.
