NDT of fastner head

can the head of a fastner be tested for crack after forging using some NDT method? If so how?

They can be very easily tested for the presence of cracks/bursts using wet fluorescent magnetic particle testing(WFMPT),assuming that the fasteners are of ferromagnetic material. This is a fast and reliable method that will detect cracks of even a few microns width when properly applied. Alternately Dye Penetrant testing(PT) also can be used as a stop gap arrangement before you can procure the preffered WFMPT set up.In case the fastners are of non ferromagnetic materials like SS, PT (colour/fluorescent)can only be aplied.

Dear Prakash,

Yes, there are several options. Magnetic Particle Testing is one (I am assuming that the fastener is magnetic). If you need real time high speed testing, you should think of automated UT and or RT. If you can accept batch testing mode, MT and PT (if non-magnetic material is invoved) may be good enough.

SONOAIR - air-coupled Phased Array Ultrasonic Inspection System

For highly attenuating materials, the performance of the system is critical. The ultrasonic sensors,
...
the scanning area and the system settings should be flexibly adapted to the test task and the material. These high expectations are met with the new and modular testing system SONOAIR. With the world’s first air-coupled phased-array UT inspection system SONOAIR we developed a technology that works with up to 4 transmitter and receiver channels with freely configurable square wave burst transmitters as wells as low noise receiving amplifiers.
