The 600-page composite report - which is an unabridged combination of Volumes 1-5 - can be obtained at a 60% savings over the cost of individual volumes. Maxtech International's Series on Nondestructive Testing provides the following valuable market information:
The reports have the following format:
In Vol. 1, x-ray equipment, including portables, constant potential sources, microfocus sources, linear accelerators, betatrons and x-ray cabinets are reviewed. Gamma ray and neutron radiography equipment are analyzed and the effect of NRC regulations discussed. Film, paper, chemicals, processors and accessories are evaluated - environmental effects of film processing are discussed. Special emphasis is placed on film scanners/digitizers.
In Vol. 2, the x-ray sources (constant potential, microfocus, linacs) and detectors (including image intensifiers, solid state detectors and fiber optic plates) used in non-film radiography are reviewed. Radioscopy (digital real-time radiography), Computed Radiography (with photostimulable phosphor plates) and Computed Tomography (CT) systems are analyzed and compared to film-radiography. New uses of CT in flaw detection, metrology and reverse engineering are discussed. New portable radioscopy systems are described. Payback times for non-film systems are compared to film-based products. New developments in the x-ray inspection of electronic assemblies and printed circuit boards are examined. Recent developments in large area solid state flat panel x-ray detectors are critically examined. Included are amorphous silicon and amorphous selenium detector arrays.
In Vol. 3, eddy current instruments and systems used for in-line production testing (with both encircling coils and rotary probes) and maintenance inspection are reviewed. Eddy current thickness gauges, imaging systems and PC-compatible plug-in cards are evaluated. Applications are discussed, including aircraft bolthole inspection, heat-exchanger tubing inspection and many others. The newest developments in Remote Field Eddy Current Testing are discussed.
In Vol. 4, ultrasonic systems flaw detectors, portable flaw detectors, thickness gauges (hand-held, portable and specialty-types), PC-based instrumentation, plug-in boards and transducers are reviewed. Ultrasonic scanning systems, imaging systems (including acoustic microscopes) and phased array systems are evaluated in detail. Laser ultrasonic systems in production and development are reviewed. The latest developments in Bond Testers are reviewed. Classic acoustic emission equipment, fully digital acoustic emission equipment and modal acoustic emission equipment are analyzed.
In Vol. 5, mobile, portable and hand-held yokes used for magnetic particle testing are reviewed. Stationary and automated equipment (including multi-directional MT) are analyzed. Accessories - including ultraviolet (UV) lamps and gaussmeters - are discussed. Manual and automated liquid penetrant equipment are analyzed. Both magnetic particle and liquid penetrant materials and supplies are evaluated.
Future directions for each NDT technology are discussed, including research developments in image processing, neural networks, superconducting devices, meandering winding magnetometers (MWM) and microwave testing. New piezo-composite transducers and guided wave ultrasonic methods are discussed. The increased use of combined NDT techniques (sensor fusion) is reviewed.
For each end-user segment, general growth trends are reviewed, NDT applications and new developments are discussed.
Results of a comprehensive End-User Survey of 3504 members of the American Society of Nondestructive Testing (ASNT) are analyzed. The following results are included:
