Find Defects Early and Save Money with Visual Inspection Services

Once they are in service, defective parts can be costly to repair. To help you avoid these extra costs, we perform 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 within the military, automotive, construction or aerospace sectors. We also offer a specific visual inspection service for welds used in locks and dams.

We provide visual inspection services anywhere in the world. Our inspectors have extensive training and experience – making TÜV Rheinland the inspection agency of choice.

Visual Inspection Approach

We use a whole range of proper devices, such as filet weld gauges, undercut gauges, bridge cam gauges, flashlights, rulers, as well as a magnifying glass and a camera used for documentation assistance during the product inspection. The areas of concern will be marked up so that proper repairs can be done. This process will be repeated until no further issues are found. The inspector then follows up with inspection reports that indicate findings.
