Portable Low X-ray power (30kV, 1.5mA)
Cycle time is 90 seconds Full 2D sensor
Debye ring data reveals
grain orientation, texture, grain size,
and other metallurgical items.
X-ray diffraction (XRD) has made
residual stress characterization
easy, fast, and dependable.
Manufacturing process can induce residual stresses that can lead to fatigue cracking and stress corrosion cracking. These conditions can
premature failures in components.
Measurement of residual stresses in automotive components is an essential tool for process consistency and failure analysis.
Residual stress measurements are
critical in determining life of aerospace
structures and components.
Powder Bed Fusion 3D Printers can produce repeatable and almost identical parts,
but the process be building parts with
inconsistent residual stresses.
The dramatic effect that residual stresses
have on pipelines can help propagate:
Monitors proper and beneficial shotpeening
for 100% inspection while identifying
under peening and overpeening. Improper peening can decrease the service life of a component.
