Find it Small

With infrared thermography, we can identify issues months — or even years — before they become serious, giving our customers the ability to repair or replace equipment and components during normal maintenance cycles while avoiding the hassle, expense and lost production of unscheduled emergencies.

Using non-contact color infrared thermography, our trained experts perform thermographic electrical inspections — without disrupting normal operations — to determine the location and severity of future problems.

This infrared inspection technology is of value to numerous industries that rely on sophisticated and delicate equipment. For example, the aerospace industry frequently makes use of infrared electrical inspection to ensure that the extremely complex and vital systems installed in aircraft perform as required. The automotive sector also depends on electrical thermal imaging to ensure that components sourced from vendors live up to its high standards of quality and dependability.

Fix it Correctly

Our infrared inspection reports fully document the inspection process, from routing to photos of each item that needs action. We will help you understand the likely reason for the problem and provide the information your maintenance crews need to repair it before it escalates into a safety or production issue. We also can perform repairs and provide follow-up inspections to ensure all issues are resolved.
