North Star Imaging reveals 9MeV high energy x-ray at Florida lab


North Star Imaging (NSI) has unveiled the 9 Million Electron Volt (MeV) high-energy CT x-ray system at the heart of its recently-opened laboratory in Orlando, Florida.

The MevX9 High Energy computed tomography (CT) x-ray system is capable of scanning very large dense parts used in aerospace and aviation and is part of NSI’s non destructive testing (NDT) services offering for that sector.

Typical inspections include internal measurements, 3D CAD comparisons, void and/or porosity analysis, surface determinations for reverse engineering, finite element analysis and failure analysis.

The Florida lab, which opened last July is the first High Energy CT scanning service lab in the Southeastern US for inspection of energetics and additive manufactured parts. The MevX9  is capable of scanning larger and more dense parts than ever before.

The Orlando laboratory also includes an X5000 CT machine, capable of scanning parts up to 32” by 48”, and an X3000, capable of scanning parts up to 19.5” x 24”.

The business development team has a strong background in metrology and x-ray equipment. Customers can obtain advice and support for all of their x-ray inspection service needs and in the development of application-specific solutions.

North Star Imaging is ISO 9001:2015 certified, ISO 14001:2015 certified, ITAR compliant, ASTM compliant, NAS 410 compliant, and compliant to DOD Manual 4145.26.
