Eddy Current Testing Applications from Apex Inspections Incorporated. Eddy-current testing (also commonly seen as eddy current testing and ECT) is one of many electromagnetic testing methods used in nondestructive testing (NDT) making use of electromagnetic induction to detect and characterize surface and sub-surface flaws in conductive materials.

FAA AD Boeing Company Model 767-200 and -300 series airplanes

SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model 767-200 and -300 series airplanes. This AD was prompted by an evaluation by the design approval holder (DAH) indicating that the frame-to-floor-beam joints and frames common to shear ties at certain locations of fuselage structure are subject to widespread fatigue damage (WFD). This AD requires inspections for cracking of certain frame inner chords and webs common to the floor beam joint and at frames common to the shear ties at certain sections, and corrective action if necessary. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

FAA AD Airbus Model A300 series airplanes.

SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus Model A300 series airplanes. This AD was prompted by an evaluation by the design approval holder (DAH) that indicates that a section of the wing and aft fuselage is subject to widespread fatigue damage (WFD). This AD requires an inspection to determine if certain modifications have been done. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products

FAA Airworthiness Directive for certain Airbus Model A318, A319, and A320 series airplanes

This AD requires repetitive detailed inspections for damage on the fuselage skin at certain frames, and applicable related investigative and corrective actions.

FAA AD 2015-25-08

SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model 777 airplanes. This AD was prompted by an evaluation by the design approval holder (DAH) indicating that the lap splices of the aft pressure bulkhead webs are subject to widespread fatigue damage (WFD) on aging Model 777 airplanes that have accumulated at least 38,000 total flight cycles. This AD requires repetitive inspections for any crack in the aft webs of the radial lap splices of the aft pressure bulkhead, and, if necessary, corrective actions.

Eddyfi Expands its Family of DefHi® Array Probe

file_r.asp

Québec, November 3, 2015 — Eddyfi is proud to announce the expansion of its family of DefHi array probes for tubing inspection. Eddyfi improved and expanded the selection of heavy wall (HW) DefHi probes to offer superior coverage and penetration in very-low-frequency applications (4 kHz to 60 kHz) such as brass and cupronickel tubing.

Additionally, Eddyfi introduces the all new high frequency (HF) series of DefHi probes. The HF DefHi furthers the already highly versatile reach of the DefHi array probes for tubing. If you need to perform a high-speed, high-resolution, multiple axis inspection of thin-walled titanium (including circumferential cracking at top of tubesheets), 300-series stainless steel, or other high-resistivity materials, Eddyfi now delivers the array solution you need.
