High energy X-ray inspection of a casting

High Energy X-Ray Scanning Services

Remove the Questionable Interpretation - Better Penetration, Better Image Quality

High Energy X-Ray Scanning Services

High Energy X-ray inspection allows inspection of extremely dense and critical parts such as those used in the aerospace, defense, and automotive industries. Common applications that are readily scanned by our MeVX6™ High Energy system include large and complex assemblies, rocket engines and tanks, nickel-based alloys, combustion chambers, engine blocks, turbine blades and more.

North Star Imaging is ISO 9001:2015 certified, ITAR registered/compliant, ASTM compliant, DOD 4145.26-M Compliant, and has ASNT & NAS 410 Level III certified employees.

High energy MeVX Industrial X-ray Scanning System

The MeVX Series

When you need to have the answers, what’s the true cost of not having enough energy? When inspecting large, dense, or thick materials; penetration can be difficult with energies of 450 kV and less. Noise, Scatter, and beam hardening artifacts negatively impact the image fidelity. The MeVX9 uses a 9 MeV linear accelerator (LINAC) to not only improve penetration but also image quality.

The Power of High Energy

Nine million electron volts paired with proprietary scatter reduction technology; NSI’s MeVX9 has the power to get through your most difficult parts. As you can see with the Turbo Pump shown here, the added penetration significantly reduces artifacts. The reduction of these artifacts allows for better defect detection, geometrical representations of part features, and surfacing of volumetric data for nominal comparisons.
