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.
We have several machines with different capability including:
- Penetrating x-rays up to 200kV
- Sample size up to 600mm long
- Sample weight of 15kg
- Resolution detail to <5 microns
- Magnification to 1000X
Customers with an inspection requirement have a number of options:
- Parts delivered to us by courier will be inspected using a pre-determined set of guidelines
- Bring parts to us and watch and direct the inspection
- Operate the x-ray machines yourself after a short operator training and safety induction
Inspection is usually charged by the machine-hour but we can also agree ‘per item’ rates on batches of identical parts. We also hire out X-ray equipment for higher volume inspection requirements. See hire.
