Non-destructive testing (NDT) is an analysis technique used to evaluate the properties of a material, a component or a system without causing damage. X-ray is one of the most important techniques in non-destructive testing to examine manufactured components. This is primarily because NDT does not permanently alter the inspected article. That is, it does not damage the article in the process of examination. It is therefore a valuable technique that can save both time and money during examination, troubleshooting, and research.
Industrial computed tomography (CT) is an x-ray computer-aided tomographic process that produces three-dimensional representations of scanned objects. Thus, it provides both internal and external representations of the scanned object. Industrial CT can be used in a variety of areas within many industries for inspection of components. It is used within metrology, for assembly analysis or for flaw detection in situations, where the objects and applications under analysis are not to be damaged. In most applications, microfocus x-ray tubes are needed.
At Magnatek, we provide very stable and reliable x-ray sources and powerful generators for integration with most x-ray tube-heads on the market.
