The SCANSTAR INSPECTION TECHNOLOGY PRIVATE LIMITED (SITPL) in Chennai provides high-quality training in the area of Non-Destructive Testing (NDT). NDT is a group of techniques used in science and industry to analyze the properties of a material, component or system without causing damage. Since this type of testing does not permanently alter the item being inspected, it is a very valuable technique that can save both money and time in product evaluation, troubleshooting, and research.
At SCANSTAR INSPECTION TECHNOLOGY PRIVATE LIMITED (SITPL) students are trained by imparting both theoretical and practical knowledge using advanced training media like visuals and audio. The trainers hold American Society for NDT Level III (Highest Level in NDT) and having Experience working in the field of NDT for more than a decade.
The curriculum is prepared as per ASNT (American Society for Nondestructive Testing) standards. The students are sent to major mechanical engineering companies for on-site training and real-time experience. SCANSTAR INSPECTION TECHNOLOGY PRIVATE LIMITED (SITPL) has an excellent testing laboratory that provides students with the knack of applying the knowledge gained here in real life environment.
The training takes into considering the learning capacity of each student and provides guidance and additional hours of training for those who need it.
Since NDT is viewed as a safety measure in the industries and the work of NDT professionals involves taking responsibility for the lives of the people working in field of oil and natural gas, aircraft, train etc., the students are trained with rigorous training methodology which makes them responsible individuals. Apart from NDT training, Nest also offers training in communication skills and other skills needed to be successful in life. The Institute also provides accommodation for outstation candidates.
On successful completion of the course, the candidates are also provided with certificates stating their experience in the field and their achievements during the course. The students also get placed through the Institute's placement cell and get to work on various construction, power, shipping, petroleum and Chemical projects which involve Non-Destructive testing methods.
SCANSTAR INSPECTION TECHNOLOGY PRIVATE LIMITED (SITPL) offers training programs in the following areas:
o Radiographic testing – or industrial radiography, is a method of inspecting materials for hidden flaws by using the ability of short wavelength electromagnetic radiation to penetrate various materials. It is used in inspection of welds in the Automotive and Aerospace domains, construction of bridges etc.
o Ultrasonic Testing - Utrasonic testing is a non destructive testing where very short ultrasonic pulse-waves with frequencies ranging from 0.1-15MHz and occasionally up to 50 MHz are launched into materials to detect internal flaws. The technique is also used to determine the thickness of the testing objects, for example, to monitor corrosion inside pipes.
o Magnetic Particle Testing – Magnetic particle testing is a non destructive testing for detecting the surface and sub surface defects in ferrous materials. It is done by applying an external magnetic field or electric current through the ferrous materials. The defect in the ferrous materials is found using the principle of magnetic flux which will leave the area where the flaw is located. This method is also used for casting, forging etc.
o Liquid Penetrant Testing- Also known as Dye Penetration Testing. This is a method of non destructive testing for materials that are nonporous in nature. It is based on the capillary action, where surface tension fluid low penetrates into clean and dry surface breaking the discontinuities. It can be used to detect cracks, stress corrosion, inter-granular corrosion etc.
o Visual Testing - Visual testing is a non destructive testing method in which the reflected or transmitted light from a test object is imaged with a light sensitive device. Visual Inspection is done in combination with other methods of NDT. It can be used to inspect surface cracks, corroded surfaces, bubbles on the surface etc.
Anyone who holds a diploma, B.E or B. Tech degree in mechanical can apply for these programs.
