X-ray inspection is a quick, cost-effective method of monitoring product quality. This effective non-destructive test can be used to highlight defects including missing or broken parts, incorrect assembly, cracks, voids and inclusions. Our x-ray inspection service frequently performs quality checks on plastics/materials, electronic components and PCB boards,  forensic evidence, motors and automotive parts and much more. 

We offer a comprehensive x-ray inspection service at our facility in Milton Keynes. All the x-ray machines are real-time micro-focus which provide high resolution and high magnification images. The sample parts are manipulated using joystick controls to give the desired view. X-ray images can be viewed live or are captured and stored on USB or CD, or sent via the internet.

The x-ray inspection service is available for use during normal working hours or out-of-hours by special arrangement. Electron-X trained operators complete the work and specialist Applications Engineers are available to assist with problem solving and tailoring procedures to  quality certification requirements.
