Mikkel is a second-generation NDT Inspector, succeeding his father at FORCE Technology. He has been with the company for five years, working with YXLON portable products. FORCE Technology is the largest inspection company in Scandinavia. They were founded more than 70 years ago - and operate worldwide from America to Asia.

On this particular day Mikkel and his colleague Henrik are inspecting weld seams at the multi fuel Avedøre power station in Copenhagen. The power station is one of the most modern and efficient in the world. For the inspection job they brought the SMART EVO 200D.

In Mikkel’s opinion the SMART EVO 200D has two major advantages. One is the 1 mm focal spot and the other is the low weight. “The EVO makes work easy. I save time on every exposure, which increases the number of exposures I can make”.

“I used to shoot an item from 120 cm, which took about 4 minutes. But thanks to the 1 mm focal spot and the 750 watt X-ray power I can do the same job from a distance of 60 cm in only 40 seconds. That makes a big difference in the number of exposures I can make in one day”.

“With the SMART EVO 200D you can do the same job, from half the distance and in a tenth of the usual time”.
