Visual Inspection Services

Find Defects Early and Save Money with Visual Inspection Services

Once they are in the field, defective parts can be costly to repair. To help you avoid these extra costs, TÜV Rheinland’s trained professionals use visual inspection on welds to find and determine small defects.

Our certified welding inspectors (CWIs) are trained to determine the various lengths, measurements, and quality of welded parts and components and to verify that the product meets the requirements of the specifications – whether it is military, automotive, construction, or aerospace. We also offer a specific inspection service for welds in use in locks and dams.

To provide visual inspection services, our visual inspectors can travel to any location around the world. They have extensive training and experience – making TÜV Rheinland the inspection agency of choice.

Approach

Certified welding inspectors (CWI) use a whole range of proper devices, such as filet weld gauges, undercut gauges, bridge cam gauges, flashlight, ruler, magnifying glass, and a camera, for documentation assistance during product inspection. The CWI marks up the areas of concern, so the proper repairs can be done, and repeats the process until no issues are found. The CWI then follows up with inspection reports that indicate findings.
