ABSTRACT --- This presentation will cover the Non-Destructive Examination (NDE) of Extrusion Presses as a Predictive Maintenance Procedure. The various NDE Methods that will be described include but are not limited to Visual Inspection, Ultrasonic, Magnetic Particle, and Liquid Penetrant examinations. While focusing mainly on the process and applications to extrusion press components, this paper will also delve into the benefits NDE as a predictive maintenance tool may offer a company. When companies correctly apply NDE Methods they show better operational efficiency, improved safety of employees, and better customer satisfaction.
