X-Ray System, Components & Services
Industrial X-ray imaging is commonly used as part of design validation and quality control processes across many industrial applications including Aerospace, Automotive, Electronics, Medical, Pharmaceutical, Military and Defense. Similar to medical doctors and specialists checking for cracks and fractures in bones, industrial radiographers and manufacturing engineers use X-ray images to check for cracks and flaws or defects that are not visible to the human eye from the outside of the products being manufactured.
X-ray images are acquired by placing a product/object on a stage between an X-ray tube and X-ray detector. As the X-ray beam passes through the object, the X-ray energy level is attenuated in proportion to the material thickness, inclusion or voids within that object. This results in 2D or 3D images that are used for further evaluations and inspections.
