Eddy Current technique

Danny N Marks - Senior Member – Nondestructive Testing

A major brewing company used my ideals to drive an inspection process that I conducted to measure impact for can closure to assist in redesigning of cans to save an estimated 4 million dollars annually in material cost.
Developed, wrote and implemented detailed Nondestructive Testing (NDT) programs for inspection of aerospace products that were proven to substantially save operation costs, reduce man-hours, improve turn time and exceed customer requirements. Examples: (1) Implemented a proven process that reduced waste water disposal cost (used for NDT), by 90%. (2) Driving a team building effort reduced waste of one product (cost $25 each) by 95% by developing a robust ultrasonic technique, prior to this application thousands of these products were rejected due to a poor and inefficient technique that was used. (3) Developed and implemented an Eddy Current technique that identified and located small fatigue type cracks on a major aerospace part that reduced in-service failures by an estimated 95%.
A major NDT Inspection company saved their customers significant cost in material waste and man hours by applying a proprietary Eddy Current inspection I developed. Resulting in less on-site time and increased inspection sensitivity.
With over (35) years in Management and Nondestructive Testing (NDT), plus (15+) years in Quality, developing NDT programs, training, NDT certifications and using six sigma mythology to implement cost saving applications, problem solving, team building and enhance customer satisfaction.
