NDT Industry News, Updates and Announcements


The 2014 North Star Imaging, Inc.  X-ray and CT Symposium attracted a huge crowd with guests attending from as far away as Korea and Italy.

Industry leading professionals presented on the latest developments, trends and techniques within the X-ray/CT Nondestructive testing field.  Topics ranged from Advanced Software to X-ray Tube/Detector Developments and even Virtual Reality.

Formerly called the Three Rivers Technical Conference, the event was brought back by customer request.  “Our goal was to help drive growth in the X-ray and CT industries by creating opportunities for customers and suppliers to collaborate,” said Nick Brinkhoff, NSI Product Manager.  “We had so many registrants that we had to close registration early.” 

Keynote Speaker, Jerry Roddy, was a highlight of the symposium.  Jerry, former lead scientist for the NSA NDT laboratory, used non-destructive testing techniques to uncover implants that allowed Soviets to spy on machines in the US Embassy in Moscow in 1984.

“NSI would like to thank our speakers for sharing their knowledge, our vendors for their support and especially all of our attendees for joining us, participating and ultimately making this event an overwhelming success,” said Chris Damhof, Marketing Coordinator.

North Star Imaging, Inc., An ITW Company, is one of the leading manufacturers of 2D Digital Radiography and 3D Computed Tomography systems in the world.    In addition to developing advanced imaging techniques, the Inspection Services Group at NSI provides contract lab services to anyone who needs to gain the inside view of their specimen.  For more information Contact NSI.
