Laboratory Testing Inc. Receives Boeing Approvals for Ultrasonic Testing

Boeing has approved LTI to provide Immersion Ultrasonic Testing Services to AMS 2631 and AMS-STD-2154. These approvals allow LTI to provide testing directly to the company and to Boeing suppliers.

Philadelphia, PA, May 03, 2018 --( Laboratory Testing Inc. (LTI) has received Boeing approval to perform immersion Ultrasonic Testing (UT) of round bar material to AMS 2631 and AMS-STD-2154. These approvals allow LTI to provide testing directly to the company and to Boeing suppliers. LTI also holds numerous additional approvals from Boeing for ultrasonic, magnetic particle and penetrant inspection, as well as mechanical, metallurgical and fracture toughness testing.

LTI performs immersion ultrasonic testing on seven high-speed test systems during two work shifts. The Lab also offers contact UT inspection for products that fall outside the size and shape limitations of the immersion systems. The large Nondestructive Testing Department uses high-capacity cranes and forklifts to move tubing, pipe, bar and other products, up to 70 feet in length, to the testing stations.

Specification AMS2631 includes the ultrasonic testing procedure for locating internal defects in wrought titanium and titanium alloy products that are a half inch and over in cross-sectional thickness, but usage is not limited to such applications. Standard AMS-STD-2154 provides uniform methods for the ultrasonic inspection of wrought metals and wrought metal products. “LTI is very happy to be among the small group of approved labs that are trusted by Boeing to provide these immersion UT processes,” said Jonathan Faia, Quality Director.
