Detection of surface defects in metallic components, cracks, pits,
corrosion, changes in heat treatment, and conductivity.
Eddy current systems can also be used to measure conductivity and can
be used for determining fire damaged areas.
Automated systems for the examination of aircraft wheels are not
uncommon in aerospace environments.

|Useful for checking attachment holes for cracks which are not
detectable by visual or penetrant methods. |
|Very fast to use. |
|Very portable |
|Can test through coatings. |
|Can test through different layers of multi layered structures.|
|Sensitive to combinations and variations in material. |
|Different probes are required for most applications.|
