High Energy Digital Radiography (DR) and Computed Tomography (CT) Inspection of Additive Manufacturing produced parts.
June 12, 2019 | The Corner Pug
VJ Technologies is an industry leader in Digital Radiography (DR) and Computed Tomography (CT) for industrial applications as both a capital equipment supplier to the end user as well as providing inspections services for customers that have inspection requirements, but are not particularly in the market for capital equipment. High energy x-ray in particular, when used with digital flat panel detectors, provides wider dynamic range with greater tolerance for over or under exposure along with other advantages of DR such as instant image preview with real-time image processing and enhancement, unlike film. High Energy CT has become an essential tool for non-destructive testing purposes allowing one to view and analyze the three-dimensional structure of the object being inspected. Multiple acquisition methods have emerged for CT allowing larger and larger samples to be imaged with CT. Additive manufacturing (AM) as an emerging technology that enables the rapid fabrication of complex-configuration components directly from digital files requires the use of DR and CT inspection tools to ensure quality and to detect unwanted anomalies within the product that could result in a product failure if not detected. This presentation will cover some of the leading-edge technologies used today and the numerous advantages of High Energy DR and CT, some of various methods utilized for acquisition of CT data, Industries that use our services and some examples of DR images and CT reconstructions to demonstrate capability.

Who are the major drivers of technology, what technology domains are they active in, who are the new players, what is the patent landscape, and which companies might be a good fit for partnership or acquisition? We will examine recent worldwide patent activity to help answer these questions surrounding new developments in alloys and composites in aerospace industry. Additionally, we will use non-patent sources of information to augment our findings based on the analysis of patent activity for select clusters of technology and/or key players in the field.

Every manufactured product is made from a natural or engineered material. Unfortunately, some things are made from the wrong material, or are made from the right material, but in the wrong way. Those mistakes can lead to product failures that have serious consequences. When a product failure is analyzed to determine the cause, the material performance is a critical factor to consider, and a materials engineer will be an integral component of the investigation team.

Boston Materials was spun-out of Northeastern University in 2016 by Anvesh Gurijala, Michael Segal, and Dr. Randall Erb. Since then, Boston Materials has scaled the production of Carbon Supercomposites from small square-inch samples to a continuous roll-to-roll process. Moving forward, Boston Materials will be launching an industrial-scale pilot facility and deliver market-ready Carbon Supercomposites to key customers by the summer of 2019.
