Resonant Acoustic Method (NDT-RAM) Part Quality Test Systems

THE MODAL SHOP, INC. provides quality-testing systems for powder metal, cast, ductile iron,  forged, and ceramic parts.  The nondestructive testing application using the Resonant Acoustic Method (NDT-RAMTM) technique, based upon the innovative LanSharcÔ hardware platform, has proven effective for many manufacturers in a variety of industries, including aerospace, automotive, consumer goods, and medical devices.  NDT-RAM is ideal for manufacturers that have substantial inspection cost, require 100% inspection, produce or use safety-critical parts, have substantial scrap costs due to false rejects, or simply want to improve their part quality.  With no part preparation required, this technique can successfully identify internal and external flaws due to cracks, voids, material density, dimensions, porosity and nodularity as well as missed manufacturing processes.

The NDT-RAM system tests the whole part for flaws, and provides an objective, quantitative analysis that eliminates errors that come from human interpretation.  The entire process takes approximately one second per part, allowing for efficient quality control testing of all parts that come off of your production line.

NDT-RAM is an ideal tool if there is a desire to achieve “zero defects”.  Free parts tests are offered for feasibility testing of your parts and system rentals are available allowing you to try the system in your facility before buying.

Visit us at IMTS, booth #4038 to see the system in operation and discuss your application in person or contact THE MODAL SHOP, INC., 3149 E. Kemper Road Cincinnati, OH 45241  USA,, (800) 860-4867, Fax (513) 458-2172 or e-mail:
