X-Ray Laboratories was established in 1968, since when it has provided a professional, comprehensive, and cost-effective testing and inspection service to the engineering industry in the greater Auckland area.

The company was the first and possibly the only NDT company outside Australia/PNG to get NATA registration, which it held until the advent of Telarc and then IANZ. M Fischer held NATA signatory status with the company until it was Telarc registered (Registration number 6), when he then held Telarc signatory status. Current accreditation is with IANZ. The laboratory is available to all clients worldwide, although we tend to specialise in the northern North Island of New Zealand from Whangarei to Taupo.

Laboratory testing is carried out in most of the techniques required for a complete service to the engineering industry regarding welding procedures, welder qualification, and materials approval.

 On-site testing is carried out in the common techniques of non-destructive inspection used by the heavy engineering industry for the approval or certification of production welds.
