Exova says that Insight is at the forefront of the NDT market in the UK, providing its specialist services to the industrial sector since 1997. It claims that Insight’s reputation is built on consistently providing high quality, high capacity and fast turnaround radiographic inspection services for manufacturers of specialised castings and forgings within the industrials market, as well as providing testing for the nuclear, medical, rail and oil & gas sectors.
