The nuclear and defence industries also represent an area of growth for MS3D. This involves inspecting very complex parts having very strict requirements for safety, which accounts for their very tight manufacturing tolerances. Certain industry-specific parts, such as mounting stud boreholes for nuclear power plants, or medium-calibre gun barrels, require the kind of highly specialised inspection machines that MS3D can successfully put into service.


Our inspections generally focus on:
– 3D geometry
– Shape and defects in shape
– Detection of surface defects


MS3D has been called upon for the following parts and inspections:
– Internal and external straightness of long tubes and pipes
– ERW and SSAW pipe welds
– Small- (M4 to M25) and large- (M150 to M300) diameter threads
