The Economics of Wrought Steel Inspection


The economic value of non-destructive testing to the wrought steel user is discussed. The rôle this type of testing has in the user's manufacturing cycle, and its relation to the saving of man hours which would otherwise be wasted on defective material, is emphasized. “The right test at the right time” is the economic theme. The part ultrasonics, and the testing of material in motion, has in the saving of man hours is discussed in greater detail because of their relative newness and adaptability to the testing of wrought steel in the early stages of the manufacturing cycle.
