We employ two Level III inspectors who are qualified in all GCE's methods. The methods we offer are Radiography, Liquid (Dye) Penetrant, and Magnetic particle inspections in our testing department.
Our weld shop is well versed in many disciplines. The processes available are TIG, MIG, Pulsed MIG, PTA and Oxy fuel. We have many procedures qualified to join and/or overly many metals, from the common steels to the exotics.
We can handle most CAD file types, and we have the ability to scan and print wide format documents and prints.

Our company has successfully implemented ISO 9000 as of 3/27/03 and we have just successfully completed our fourth NADCAP audit. With our new CNC machining centers and CMM inspection capabilities, we can supply you with a wide variety of services and items.
