Inspection of Metals: Understanding the Basics
Inspection of Metals: Understanding the Basics covers the tools and techniques used in manufacturing to assess the quality of metal parts or determine if they conform to production requirements or specified standards. The first half of the book discusses common testing and inspection methods, including visual inspection, dimensional inspection (coordinate measuring machines), workpiece and in-process gaging (machine vision), hardness and tensile testing, radiographic and ultrasonic inspection, compositional analysis, metallography, and the detection of surface and subsurface flaws via liquid penetrant, magnetic particle, and eddy current inspection techniques. The second half of the book compares and contrasts inspection methods based on the information they provide about specific products and product forms. It explains how the various methods are performed and what they reveal about castings, bar and wire, tubular products, forgings, powder-metal parts, weldments, and brazed assemblies.
