Dissimilar Welds

Dissimilar metal specimens are one of the most difficult welded specimens to produce. They are also one of the most challenging to examine with ultrasound.
Sonaspection have developed procedures to overcome these challenges and produce high quality specimens with accurate flaws.
We have both the experience and capability and manufacture either individual or a set of specimens, which are customised to your specific requirements.
