LTI Radiographic Inspection Article in Quality Magazine

JasonTuckerAn LTI article entitled “Inspecting Plastics and Electronics with Conventional X-ray”  was published in the June 2016 issue of Quality Magazine. The article by Jason Tucker, X-ray Supervisor at Laboratory Testing Inc., explains that industrial radiography is no longer primarily a metal inspection process. There is a growing demand for Radiographic or X-ray Inspection from manufacturers and buyers who have “new” materials and products to inspect for information about flaws and features below the surface.

Jason also mentions unique uses for this inspection method, including inspecting paintings in search of hidden documents or to study underpainting layers for museum curators and archivists, as well as analyzing damaged components during fire investigations to determine the cause of the fire.

Reliable Product Verification

Radiographic Inspection is a Nondestructive Testing method which provides valuable information and quality assurance without compromising the integrity of the test piece. Manufacturers and buyers in the medical, aerospace, defense and many other industries rely on X-ray Inspection for verification. Manufacturers can gain information about the reliability of their production processes through inspection of completed parts. Radiography is also a trusted method of ensuring buyers that the products they are purchasing meet relevant specifications and industry standards.

In his article, Jason further explains two types of industrial radiography that are available, Computed Radiography (CR) with digital results and Conventional Radiography (XR) using film. Images can be adjusted to increase contrast, control exposure, and zoom into areas of greater interest when using computed radiography. Extremely fine grain industrial film which produces a detailed high-quality image is used for conventional radiography. Both methods are offered by the X-ray Inspection Department at Laboratory Testing Inc. and have been used to inspect a range of samples made of metals, polymers and more.injection moldings_cr
