When it comes to NDT or non-destructive testing, few companies can do a better job than the good people at CAD, CAM Services
Thanks to CAD / CAM’s state of the art 3D scanning processes it is now possible to use NDT or non-destructive testing. This enables a completely thorough evaluation of the various products and components without any sort of damage, whatsoever. This is a highly valuable technology for the purpose of troubleshooting, for evaluation and research as well as overall quality control in both science and industry.by and large, manufacturing has used X-ray examination to:
- Verify weld integrity
- Verify that all hidden parts are both present and connected properly
- Find voids, cracks, or other flaws in assembled products
- Guide a robot for general assembly
- Perform any sort of critical dimensional measurement
- Count the number of slots, welds, teeth, or any other similar features
- Communicate with 3rd party equipment as well
The invention of the humble X-ray has effectively enabled all of this to a great degree
However, that was then and this is now, and most conventional x-rays have become obsolete and as a matter of fact, the aerospace industry has also led the way in this regard, while many other industrial manufacturing concerns are also following suit and using break through digital radiology for NDT applications. This is because it helps such companies in their bid to implement near-continuous product improvement along with a highly improved system of inspection. Add to that the core benefits of productivity, efficiency, and suitably enhanced profit margins as well.
Converting X-ray film into Digital NDT
The failure to be suitably careful in the handling of an old analog film is a fairly common mistake that has been made by various organizations when they are making the transition to digital NDT imaging. However, it is important to review prior studies because they are very important and in fact downright critical for making informed decisions with reference to new product development.
As a matter of fact, most aerospace and various other manufacturing companies will also need to carefully store their old x-ray film for many years in order to convert them to digital imaging and thereby maintain their existing products, parts, and components, so as to be able to improve their designs going forward.
But not digitizing the same can often mean the loss of extremely valuable film and this can lead to costly re-imaging often using both traditional as well as digital imaging techniques
We at CAD, CAM services are the widely renowned experts in the field of noninvasive NDT and will do our level best to ensure that your old X-rays are converted to digital imagery without any disruption in your processes.
