Kanfit Ltd. (Migdal HaEmek, Israel) is now offering in-house nondestructive testing (NDT) and ultrasonic inspections for the detection of defects and irregularities on composite components. The addition of NDT services will help support production processes, the reduction of costs and lead times, as well as quality control.

After a comprehensive assessment of customer needs, Kanfit made a decision to purchase two Olympus instruments for its NDT laboratory – an EPOCH 650 Ultrasonic Flaw Detector for laminated structures and a BondMaster 600 for nondestructive bond testing for sandwich structures. Following 18 months of intensive and rigorous training, Kanfit operators were Level II certified and has hired a Level III expert who will be responsible for determining inspection procedures.

"This is another step in solidifying our position as a leading one-stop-shop, A to Z solution provider meeting the highest international standards for our aerospace customers," says Kanfit General Manager Shai Fine. "By offering NDT and UI services, there is no longer a need to send the parts and structures we manufacture to a third party to be tested – a costly and time consuming process. Kanfit will be more effective in ensuring that its products are reliable and safe."

Kanfit provides a wide-range of services to the aerospace industry, including designing, manufacturing and testing products. In addition to nondestructive tests, Kanfit maintains fully equipped laboratories for conducting mechanical, physical and chemical tests on composite and metal products manufactured by the company.
