What is x-ray material testing?

X-ray material testing is a method used to determine the composition, structure, and properties of materials in a systematic way. X-ray material testing is an important technique in manufacturing industries, where it is used to ensure the quality and reliability of materials used in products. It can be used to identify potential flaws or defects in materials before they are released into production.

The specimen is placed on a rotary stage with a cone beam, low energy x-ray source which projects a beam of x-rays onto the sample object. A flat panel, x-ray detector on the opposite side of the source collects the data. The data can then be exported into specialized software developed for a multitude of analysis capabilities.

In short, X-ray material testing provides invaluable information that helps ensure the quality and safety of products.

Types of materials suitable for x-ray testing

Materials that are a good specimen for x-ray material testing include solid, non-porous objects that can be prepared in a consistent and repeatable manner.

Common materials tested include: metals such as titanium, aluminum, steel, plastics, carbon fiber, inconel, brass, and polymers.

Parts suitable for x-ray material testing depend on density of material AND how thick the part is.

The type of X-ray equipment used will depend on the type of specimen being tested. X-ray material testing is an advanced technique that requires specialized expertise and equipment to perform properly.
