Computed radiography is a nondestructive testing method that uses digital imaging technology to produce high-quality images of internal structures and components. This technology enables the detection of defects and discontinuities in materials, such as cracks, porosity, and inclusions, without damaging them.
QC Laboratories, Inc. has had remarkable success in identifying defects in metal additive manufacturing parts using computed radiography. The company has been able to detect defects as small as 25 microns, which is crucial for ensuring the quality and reliability of complex metal parts made from exotic and refractory metals like those used in aircraft and rocket engine components, where high strength and thermodynamics are required.
With the new Nadcap certification for computed radiography (AC7114/10S), QC Laboratories, Inc. is now able to offer computed radiography services that meet the rigorous quality and technical standards of the aerospace industry. This certification further strengthens the company's position as a trusted provider of nondestructive testing and inspection services to customers in a wide range of industries.
