X-Ray Inspection for the Automotive and Aviation Industries

X-ray provides the ability to inspect the internal or concealed features of structures, castings and fabrications which have been manufactured from almost any material including alloys, steels, ceramics, composites (including carbon fibre or glass reinforced plastics), plastics,  and synthetic rubbers. 

With the ongoing drive towards higher performance and greater reliability it is becoming routine practice to subject components to full x-ray inspection – both during stages of the manufacturing process or post manufacturing for final quality assurance.

X-ray technologies can be used to provide a rapid and accurate non-destructive method to detect, measure and analyse almost any concealed or difficult to measure feature helping to identify actual or latent problems.

X-ray inspection can detect:

  • Welding defects
  • Porosity
  • Missing, cracked or broken parts
  • Misalignment or orientation issues
  • Presence and absence of specific features
  • Inclusions
  • Foreign objects, debris and components
  • Non-uniformity
  • Thicknesses and overlaps

X-ray inspection can help you to:

  • Detect hidden defects
  • Verify product compliance
  • Reduce faults
  • Increase product reliability
  • Reduce recall costs
  • Improve product safety
  • Maintain your products safety and compliance in the field and secure your company’s reputation for quality.
