NDT Industry News, Updates and Announcements


If you are planning to attend the ASNT Annual Conference 2019 Event on November 18-21, don't miss the chance to attend North Star Imaging's presentations at the event.

Camaron Lemmer - Tuesday, November 19th at 3:00 PM
Brett Muehlhauser - Tuesday, November 19th at 5:30 PM
Brett Muehlhauser - Thursday, November 21st at 4:30 PM

North Star Imaging representatives from across the USA will be attending the event. Stop by our booth 1707 to meet our experts and get your questions answered.

Brett will give two presentations at this event. The first presentation will be in Pavilion 9 on Tuesday, November 19th at 5:30 PM. In this presentation, Brett will discuss, "Emerging Technologies and Techniques in DR and CT".

New developments in hardware and software have proven to further advance both DR and CT image quality and overall capability. Technique advancements are providing methods of further increasing speed in production environments. CT is rapidly becoming the "Go To" technology for evaluating many aspects of Additive Manufactured products. This presentation will include examples of applying these latest developments across various industries and a wide range of product applications.

In Pavilion 9 on Thursday, November 21st at 4:30 PM, you can attend Brett's second presentation, "Employing Computed Tomography in the Development & Qualification of AM Processes & Products".

Computed Tomography (CT) has become an extremely valuable tool in helping to expedite these qualification processes. CT is being employed in applications ranging from new AM process development through final inspection of product. Extensive studies have been performed using CT to help detect, classify and better understand the types and sizes of discontinuities found within various AM processes. Various In-situ monitoring methods employed during the AM printing cycle can provide valuable information about the AM build and the product integrity. These monitoring processes however need to be qualified. CT is now the method of choice in helping provide a three-dimensional correlation of CT identified defects to the in-situ recorded events. Critical product applications not only demand confidence in the internal integrity of the product but also in the internal and external metrology data. CT is a technology that can provide both for many applications. AM Product and Sample Coupons are commonly evaluated for material properties such as Tensile, Compression, Torsion and Fatigue. With In-Situ 4D CT, these tests can be performed while CT is being performed via load cell integration within the CT system. This presentation will include examples of CT being applied in the above applications on both metal and polymer AM products. Additionally, the use of CT in the AM process and product qualification will be outlined.

Camaron Lemmer will discuss, "DR Advancements and a Common-Sense Approach to Streamlining System Qualification and Process Controls", in Pavilion 9 on Tuesday, November 19th at 3:00 PM.

Digital Radiography (DR) technologies and techniques continue to push performance to new levels in both image quality and speed. These advancements provide new application opportunities as well as methods of substantially reducing cycle times in production environments. Continued innovations in product handling as well as fully integrated robotics even further streamline product flow. Advancements in software is helping with the integration of industry 4.0. In this presentation we will provide examples of the above, as well as proven methods of qualifying DR systems and techniques, while simplifying the implementation of industry required process controls.
