Eddy Current

Eddy Current (Level 2 & 3)

In Eddy Current testing electrical currents are generated in a conductive material by an induced magnetic field. Distortions in the flow of the electric current (eddy currents) caused by imperfections or changes in a material’s conductive properties will cause changes in the induced magnetic field. These changes, when detected, indicate the presence of the imperfection or change in the test material.

Typical Applications
- Thickness Determination of Materials
- Conductivity Sorting of Materials
- Inspection of Welds
- Inspection of Aerospace Materials

Industries that use Eddy Current Testing
- Service Inspection Companies
- Smelters & Foundries
- Rolling & Forging Mills
- Petro Chemical & Refineries
- Mining & Mineral Processing
- Aircraft Maintenance & Manufacturing
- Vehicle Maintenance & Manufacturing
- Government Bodies
- Engineering Firms
- Research & Development Facilities
- Education & Training
- Equipment Manufacture & Sales
- Maintenance, Service & Repair of Equipment

*Materials Technology/Multisector (or knowledge of materials processes) is a recommended pre-requisite for all Level 1 and Level 2 courses. Completion of a Materials Technology course is not compulsory. However, most students without a formal background in materials technology/processes may find aspects of the industry specific exams difficult without completion of the Materials Technology (Multisector) course.
