Radiography / Computerized Radiography

Radiography is used to perform volumetric assessment of raw materials, such as castings and finished components. This method can be performed conventionally with film or with computerized media.

An advantage of computerized radiography is that the computer images may be magnified. They may be lightened or darkened depending on the area requiring examination. Software tools allow defects to be accurately measured.

Defects that would be found with Radiographic Inspection

  • Shrinkage
  • Gas Holes
  • Porosity
  • Lack of Fusion
  • Lack of Penetration
  • Missing Components
  • Internal Concavity
  • Foreign Material
  • Slag
  • Burn Through

The maximum thickness for flaw detection is:

  • 2” of Steel
  • 9” of Aluminum

In house, we are able to accommodate parts weighing up to 5,000 pounds for radiographic inspection. With our portable 300 KV radiograph unit / mobile dark room, we are able to inspection parts of unlimited weight and size in the field.

Radiography Film to Disk Archiving is also available for more convenient and longer lasting image storage.
