Visual Inspection (VT)

Visual Inspection otherwise known as visual testing, is a method of Non-Destructive testing that provides a means of detecting and examining a variety of flaws on many items either in-service or at various stages during manufacture. It is also the most widely used method for detecting and examination of surface cracks and their relationship to structural failure. 

More commonly, visual testing is used to conduct a welding test, but Format NDT are also  able to provide this non destructive technique can be used to inspect:-
