Introduction of 5-year guarantee for all CR scanners

11. Oct 2017 /

Those who rely on quality are rewarded: From today, all computed radiography scanners from DÜRR NDT are delivered with a 5-year guarantee – a rarity in the NDT industry.

Ultra-high resolution for the radiographic examination

15. Dec 2016 /

DÜRR NDT is revolutionizing digital radiography with its newly-developed DR 7 NDT CMOS detector.  With a pixel pitch of just 19µm, an incredible basic spatial resolution of 25µm can be achieved. This allows the user to perform ultra-high resolution radiographic examinations, with extremely low noise and brilliant images. This is a very attractive proposition for both aerospace and oil & gas applications.

Brilliant results for industrial X-ray film processing – and now REACH compliant!

17. Oct 2016 /

Our well-tried NDT X-ray chemicals for industrial film processing have been further improved by DÜRR NDT and have obtained REACH compliance. All toxic and carcinogenic ingredients have been omitted from their formulas: the XR-F-6 NDT Fixer is now free of boric acid and the XR D-6 NDT Developer is free of hydroquinone and aldehyde, as before.

As the digitization of X-ray technology continues to expand in the NDT inspection world, many manual inspection tasks can now be fully automated. The main benefits are a significant increase in productivity and efficiency as well as higher end-product quality.

Influence of the laser spot size on the image quality of a CR system

Steve Jelfs, NDT Specialist, DÜRR NDT
12. Jul 2017 /

Computed Radiography (CR) is a digital imaging technology where phosphor imaging plates (IP’s) take the place of conventional radiographic film. Once the IP’s are exposed to radiation, the CR scanner uses a focused laser to read the information from the imaging plate and transfer it to software that renders an image on a computer.
