Our UK customer specialises in automotive component validation; they carry out integrity checks on automotive suspension systems at various points in the component’s life, with the aim of assessing their durability during real use.

Their checks involve a full strip down of the suspension system from the test rig, followed by inspection for surface-breaking defects using a red dye penetrant and solvent-based developer. They were using a wipe technique to remove the excess penetrant, but this method was both messy and time-consuming.
