Spot weld testing ????

Can someone advise me the best way to test spot welds?

Right now I am looking into Ultra sonic testing? I am looking for something that is user friendly, and easy to read, and can create a data base.

Re: Spot weld testing ????
You might want to consider reistivity, numerous car manufacturers use this as it can be quick and simple plus has outputs for SPC.

Talk to Physical Acoustics New Jersey about their M100 Unit.
