Inspection Service | Castings and Machined Components

EDL hold the BS EN 9100:2009 accreditation and operate a dedicated quality control service for the manufacture of casting products and components. The inspection department which is staffed by five permanent highly skilled and experienced engineers, is fully equipped to handle all dimensional inspection processes, as well as facilities for non destructive testing as below. 

Depending on your requirements we can offer a wide range of inspection programmes to suite the product, ranging from full inspection of every component and feature though to first off or parts off according to agreed statistical variance requirements, ie, 1 in every 200.
