High Energy Computed Tomography X-Ray Solutions Launched

North Star Imaging (NSI) has introduced a new range of High Energy X-ray systems, MeVX product line, that are available in 3, 6 and 9 Million Electron Volts (MeV).

These advanced CT systems are now available with Linear Accelerators offering energies up to 9MeV yet providing the same ease of use as NSI low energy systems in a high energy format utilizing the efX software platform.

Timothy Lebens, Global Sales Director NSI says: “The MeVX line answers the need for higher energy X-ray inspection to deeply penetrate, dense parts, that cannot be scanned using standard, lower energy, X-ray equipment.

Use of a 3, 6 or a 9 MeVX is a huge time saving solution, especially for aerospace, defense, automotive and other emerging technologies where speed and superior, high resolution images are required for mission critical parts.”

Noise, scatter, and beam hardening artifacts negatively impact the image fidelity of a part. With the help of a linear accelerator (LINAC) the MeVX units not only improve scanning penetration but also image quality.

Common applications that are readily scanned include large and complex assemblies, rocket engines and tanks, nickel-based alloys, combustion chambers, engine blocks and turbine blades.
