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
