Our services

Radiography Department

Maycast-Nokes offers two non-destructive testing (NDT) procedures; Radiographic Inspection and Liquid Penetrant Inspection.

Radiographic Inspection makes use of x-rays to produce an internal image of a casting (or part of a casting) on film, seeking out any internal defects.

Our x-ray facility incorporates two x-ray cells (220 kv + 320 kv) for use on both aluminum and steel castings. Using an automatic processor, images are produced on film and inspected against customer and industry standards for compliance.

We employ multi-disciplined inspectors who are able to work in both of our NDT departments. All are qualified to NAS 410 / EN4179 + PCN level II. In addition to our Level II members of staff we also have an on-site Level III inspector, who is qualified to write and sanction our own process techniques without any assistance from an external source.

Both departments are fully Nadcap approved and are currently on the PRI Merit program (24 month audits) following three previous successful audits.

Sub-Contract Testing Service

In addition to carrying out NDT inspections of our own castings Maycast-Nokes also offers a sub-contract NDT service, inspecting components manufactured by other companies to their required standards - please contact Tony Mays (tmays@maycast.co.uk) for further information.
