Visual Testing Level 1+2

This training course can be booked for Level 1 and Level 2 either separately or in combination. In the Level 1 training course you will find out what optical radiation is and how it can be expediently used for fault detection, and shape or surface inspection. The operating techniques of visual testing (direct/indirect, local/overview) and the fundamentals of endoscopy are presented by means of examples of practical applications. In the Level 2 training course we deal with a standard list of fault categories and develop evaluation techniques for pipe mills, foundries and welding shops based on bodies of standards.

  • Physical basics of the visual testing I
  • Work techniques of the visual testing
  • Illumination for the direct visual testing
  • Auxilliary beams and devices for the direct visual testing
  • Defect Science I – production caused imperfections
  • Typical application examples of the direct visual testing

Program Level 2:

  • Physical basics of the visual testing II
  • Detail detectability in the visual inspection
  • Equipment for the observation of interiors
  • Control and monitoring of visual testing systems
  • Evaluation according to regulations
  • Study of defects II imperfections induced by operating
