Automated thickness measurement with xray

I have an interesting problem, and would appreciate any assistance from the membership of the forum.

We have been given the task of measuring the thickness of a refractory metal (Nb, Ta, Zr alloys) using radiograpy. We need to see differences of 0.002" in materials ranging from 0.014" thick to 0.070" thick.

Currently, this is done using film radiography and evaluating the density of questionable areas.

There are many parts, some with thicknesses varied enough that double loading is required to get the desired densities on the thick and thin regions.

The number of shots in one year exceeds 9000.

Is anyone familiar with a technique or system that could allow us to do this digitally? Real-time?

In advance, Thank You for your help!

Re: Automated thickness measurement with xray
Digital radiography will give you more depth range when looking at these components and does away with the need for double loading. The '1 in 35'definition you specify (0.002 in 0.070) is within the capabilities of real-time digital systems we can provide.

If you haven't already solved the problem elsewhere, please forward me a more detailed summary of the products and process handling requirements to fit in with the 9k shots p.a.

Regards,

Stephen Bracegirdle
