Advanced NDT solutions from Advacam

Identification of defects, impurities or cracks in modern ultralight materials demands modern, state-of-the-art technology. Standard imaging technology has been used for many years for detecting defects in traditional materials such as metals, but traditional X-ray imaging systems fail when being used with modern light materials such as composites. These new materials therefore call for novel inspection technologies and photon counting detectors are ideal for this purpose.

Advacam brings to the market a new range of X-ray imaging cameras that are optimized for composite material testing. As for biological applications, Advacam's approach to non-destructive testing (NDT) is highly sensitive to low energies. In this way, light materials such as carbon fibres, epoxies, etc. are easily revealed in great detail. Hence, even challenging defects such as deep laminate wrinkles, kissing-bonds, delaminations, porosity, foreign objects and micro-cracks in the soft materials can be detected with a spatial resolution of 55 µm or better. Combining the sensitivity to low X-ray energy photons with the very high dynamic range of photon counting detectors creates a powerful tool for NDT in the aerospace industry and elsewhere.
Contrary to classical X-ray imaging setups, the robotic system produced by Radalytica company gives nearly absolute flexibility of viewing angles. Therefore, robots are able to inspect using X-rays from different angles, allowing them to accurately determine the positions of defects. Moreover, robots further open the possibility of using 3D imaging techniques such as computed tomography and tomosynthesis. These are methods commonly used in X-ray imaging, but with limited applicability to large complicated shapes. Robots overcome this limit. The robotic systems could be used in quality control labs or built into production lines.
WidePIX 2(1)X5 camera consists of either 2x5 or 1x5 Timepix devices. The camera can be constructed with Si or CdTe edgeless sensor tiles. The edgeless sensor technology allows placing all tiles tightly together from all sides. Thus the whole imaging area of the camera is fully sensitive to the radiation - there are no gaps between the tiles in the image. The camera is made robust to address industrial users. 
The WidePIX 1x5 camera offers built-in Digital Time-Delayed-Integration (DTDI) for scanning in industrial applications. It is very advantageous for scanning of larger objects or for CT scanners where some parts of rotating object can leave field of view. WidePIX 2(1)X5 is available with Si and CdTe sensors for imaging of the soft and hard X-ray spectrums, respectively. 
The minimum detectable energy is typically 5 keV in case of X-ray photons. The intrinsic spatial resolution of the camera is defined by pixel size which is 55 µm. The pixels situated on the border of tiles are 2.5 times larger in one direction. The corner pixels of tiles are 2.5 times larger in both directions.
