X-ray CT Scanning at JTL America

3D Computed Tomography X-ray Scanning is a method of inspection that has the ability to observe any cross-sectional position/magnification from three directions (X, Y, Z) and structure the observation into a 3D image. This technique allows users to see inside an object without damaging its components. There are several applications for this type of inspection. Several of these applications include: inspection of automotive vehicles, aerospace technology, orthopedic devices, manufacturing plants, product research/development, and more.

2D X-ray Scanning
Thin parts such as electronic circuit board is suitable for X-ray scanning. The voids on solder is clearly shown in the image.
2D X-ray Void Analysis
The area of solder, area of voids and percentage of voids can be calculated in the analysis. This analysis is suitable for parts validation.
2D X-ray Material Analysis
Cavities and fibers are clearly observed on the nylon resin material products with foam molding made of short fiber GFRP.
3D X-ray CT Scanning
For Connectivity Issues
3D data allows inspection in any X, Y, Z planes at all critical locations.
3D X-ray CT Scanning
For Failure Analysis
Cross sectional slices identify interior defects.
3D X-ray CT Scanning
For Visual Inspection  

Hidden internal features, such as porosity can be inspected quickly.

X-ray Scanning Uses

In addition to 3D X-ray CT scanning, our scanning technology is able to provide 2D X-Ray scans; this is also known as 2D Digital Radiography (DR). 2D X-ray scanning involves capturing and inspecting two-dimensional images. These images can be viewed on a monitor as static images or video in real-time. It’s beneficial to view images in real-time because this allows the user to continuously position the part until the desired view is shown. This allows the user to capture a large amount of images very quickly and examine components during every phase of the testing process.

Specific uses and applications of 2D X-ray scanning include:

Live inspection of a product during various phases (i.e. under tension)

X-ray imaging to determine the structural integrity of internal components

Detection of contamination in products

High-resolution x-ray imaging for product failure analysis

X-ray CT Scanning is not just useful for product quality assurance, it is also an indispensable maintenance and inspection process. For example, this inspection may be used as part of a plant’s maintenance program as it allows for early identification of components that will soon require replacement; thus, preventing equipment failure. This is a cost-effective option for manufacturers and plant managers because the testing does not damage the system. Other specific uses include, but are not limited to the following:

Circuit board wiring pattern investigation

Internal voids investigation of resin material

Resin/ceramic inner contamination investigation

Aluminum die product internal voids investigation

Assembled parts fitted investigation (Caulking etc.)

Mass production defects investigation
