Advanced NDT solutions
ADVACAM brings to the market a new range of X-ray imaging cameras that are optimized for composite material testing. Light materials such as carbon fibers, epoxies, etc. are easily revealed in great detail. Even challenging defects such as deep laminate wrinkles, kissing-bonds, delaminations, porosity, foreign objects and micro-cracks in the soft materials can be detected with a spatial resolution of 55 µm or better. Similar to its application in biology, the sensitivity to low energies is useful for non-destructive testing (NDT). Combining the sensitivity to low X-ray energy photons with the very high dynamic range of photon-counting detectors creates a powerful tool for NDT in the airspace industry and elsewhere.
Contrary to the classical X-ray imaging setups, the robotic system produced by Radalytica s.r.o. gives nearly absolute flexibility of viewing angles. Therefore, these robots allow X-raying from different perspectives, to better localize defects. Moreover, robots further open the possibility of using 3D imaging techniques such as computed tomography or tomosynthesis. These are methods commonly used in X-ray imaging, but with limited applicability on large complicated shapes. Robots help overcome this limit. The robotic systems could be used in quality control labs or built into production lines.
