Analysis and Validation
SST Technology have a strong engineering core which drives our approach to design and manufacture and can offer a range of design analysis services, from basic FE analysis work to providing thermal analysis of systems in conjunction with the heat shielding that we can offer.
We can also carry out accurate natural frequency analysis and studies of structures, which can be used either as a preventative measure to help avoid vibration issues within an application, or diagnostically to identify potential existing failure mechanisms.
Non Destructive Testing (NDT) and Natural Frequency Testing
SST Technology can offer a range of different Non Destructive Testing (NDT) options according to requirements. Common methods utilised across many products are:
- Pressure Testing to ensure an exhaust system is fully sealed, and welds have no cracks or pores
- Dye-penetrant crack testing
- X-ray or more detailed Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI) testing of machined, cast and Direct Metal Laser Sintered (DMLS) components.
We are experts in manufacture of high grade material specialist fabrications and use Poka Yoke jigging techniques to ensure repeatable and efficient manufacture. If desired we can use NDT techniques to verify all welds are in accordance with the specification and can utilize post process techniques such as heat treatment or shot peening to stress relieve in the welding zone.
