Aerospace manufacturers need to consider ease of inspection when deciding
to use 3D printing, according to a non-destructive testing (NDT) expert who
is developing best practice guidelines for the industry.
Dr Ben Dutton from the Manufacturing Technology Centre in Coventry said
there was a real concern about the lack of inspection standards at a time
when the use of 3D printing, or additive manufacturing (AM) as it is also
known, is on the increase.
"The advantage of AM is that it offers t

developing inspection and intervention technologies. The
most recent innovation is the introduction of a deepwater
Phased Array ultrasonic inspection capability for subsea
applications down to 3000m (10,000 feet). The new system is
already validated for use by a number of Operators following
trials carried out in Houston, Texas.
The unique capability can speed up subsea asset int
