First Article Inspections


DTB’s metallurgical and dimensional laboratories jointly perform both first article and production lot evaluations/testing using a comprehensive and highly structured process. The evaluations encompass every aspect of metallurgical/materials analysis and dimensional metrology to provide detailed and definitive answers to conformance-to-requirements investigations.

Our laboratories have evaluated over 1,000 assemblies with various levels of complexity and can generate extremely reliable and comprehensive data for your evaluations – whether first article, production lot, or reverse engineering.
