RADIOGRAPHY

What  Is Radiography?
Radiography uses an x-ray device or radioactive isotope as a source of radiation which passes through the material and is captured on film or digital device. After processing the film an image of varying density is obtained. Possible imperfections are identified through density changes.

Typical Applications
Thickness Determination of Materials
Inspection of Castings
Inspection of Forgings
Inspection of Welds
Inspection of Aerospace Materials
