Laboratory Testing (LTI) has announced the expansion of services available for X-ray inspection, also called radiography or radiographic testing. The laboratory’s Nondestructive Testing Department now performs computed radiography with a Carestream Industrex HPX-1 Digital System, in addition to conventional film radiography. While the X-ray process is the same for both methods, the computed or digital process differs from conventional X-ray film by producing a digital image that can be saved to a disc, emailed to customers and easily archived. Digital radiography may be conducted on various solid products, ranging from plastic injection moldings, circuit boards, batteries and evidence for litigation, to steel or aluminum castings and welds. Laboratory Testing is offering this digital method to customers as an alternative to film based X-ray inspection at no additional charge. LTI will work with customers to prepare custom procedures that ensure conformance to required specifications.
Radiographic testing can provide valuable information for determining the soundness of a material or product, identifying the extent of corrosion, uncovering the source in fire investigations and more. The need for radiographic testing services can occur during product research & development, as part of the manufacturing, fabrication or installation processes or when a product is in service. Digital radiography, which is a variation of hi-tech digital photography with no films, chemicals or processing required, is used across a wide-range of industries and for this broad range of testing needs.
