Overview of Fluorescent Penetrant Inspection in Aerospace

Non-destructive testing (NDT) used in the aerospace industry plays a critical safety role in the manufacturing process of flight-critical parts and components. Fluorescent Penetrant Inspection (FPI) is one of these NDTs that allows the detection of defects in metal products. In this article, we discuss this inspection technique to better understand the important role it plays for aircraft manufacturers and how it fits into the manufacturing process. What Is Fluorescent Penetrant Inspection? Fluorescent penetrant inspection is a non-destructive testing process in which dye is applied to the surface of a material to examine for surface defects. Many metallic products [...]
