Digital Radiography Consideration

Has any one tried DR? Are you satisfied with it? Was it worth the cost? Compared to traditional radiography how does it stand? Which company and/or instruments do you use?

Thank you.

DR works well for many applications, but not all. What will you be radiographing?

Aerospace (civilian and military) would be the application. We would x-ray aluninum alloys, steels, castings (aluminum & mag), composites, titaniumss and friction stir welds of various thickness.

Hello All, we use DR on rotating objects, currently to find cracks in welding samples. It then goes on to creating a tomographic dataset to get 3D metrics.
It is hard to analyse a 3d dataset for unknown disturbances, it takes new analyse methods mostly for every quality question....
Be aware for the health regulations on operating a x-ray source, it probably takes education for a certification.

To Bass Jansen:
How large and thick are the welding samples you are examining?
What kind of detector do you use?
How do you verify the image quality?
What are the pros, as you see it, of reconstructing the weld samples into 3D-models? (disregarding the cool part)

We are now working on two beeing 2x2x11cm, these are pieces cut-out of a big weld from a testpipe under stress(head, stress and bending)
: What kind of detector do you use?
A dose ImageIntensifier, erg. our tomographic setup
: How do you verify the image quality?
We just go for difference in intensity, over more pixels and more angles
: What are the pros, as you see it, of reconstructing the weld samples into 3D-models? (disregarding the cool part), The cool part! ;-)
We can do volume metrics and orientation in different directions.

Please note we are a research institute so having the tool makes us try new uses. www.nrg-nl.com

Product Spotlight

FMC/TFM

Next generation for Phased Array UT is here now with FMC/TFM! Have higher resolution imaging, impr
...
oved signal to noise ratio, characterize, size and analyze defects better with access to several wave mode views and save raw FMC data for higher quality analysis.  Some of the benefits are:
  • Beautiful Image! Easier to understand what you're looking at
  • Completely focused in entire image or volume
  • Much easier to define setups before inspection
  • Easier to decipher geometry echoes from real defects
  • Oriented defects (e.g. cracks) are imaged better
  • See image from different wave modes from one FMC inspection
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field

SONOAIR - air-coupled Phased Array Ultrasonic Inspection System

For highly attenuating materials, the performance of the system is critical. The ultrasonic sensors,

the scanning area and the system settings should be flexibly adapted to the test task and the material. These high expectations are met with the new and modular testing system SONOAIR. With the world’s first air-coupled phased-array UT inspection system SONOAIR we developed a technology that works with up to 4 transmitter and receiver channels with freely configurable square wave burst transmitters as wells as low noise receiving amplifiers.
