Industrial X-Ray Products
North Star provides NDT testing equipment, services and training to a wide variety of industries—automotive, aerospace, defense/ordinance, medical device, and manufacturing industries. No testing challenge is too small or too large for our attention. We have built state-of-the-art equipment to test the integrity of everything from heart valves and pacemakers to aircraft wings
- For example, a fully programmable scan plan for aircraft wings allows for the inspection of initial work, repair, review, and documentation of trouble spots on a nine axis of inspection.
Design. Build. Test.
We design and build customized testing equipment for X-ray imaging, computer tomography (ct), and computer radiography. All imaging is done in real-time and data can be stored within the equipment at mega-pixel resolution. Our 3-D imaging can scan 360 degrees to capture dimensional data in CAD. Even North Star’s X-ray imaging provides a 3-D feel, because it can rotate in real time and slice for dimensional data, revealing flaws left by artifacts in castings.

Radiography involves the use of penetrating X or Gamma radiation to examine parts and products for imperfections. An X-ray machine or radioactive isotope is used as a source of radiation. Radiation is directed through the inspection object and onto film or an electronic detector producing a shadow graph that shows the internal structure of the inspection object. Possible imperfections show up as density changes in the image, the same way a medical X-ray can show broken bones. ...more
