Radiographic Method (RX)

When X rays, electromagnetic waves, go through the object to be examined, they are absorbed according to the thickness and density of the crossed material.
The X rays succeeding in going through the material expose a photoplate located behind the object to be examined. After the photographic development, the different plate areas are more or less black according to the radiation dose absorbed. In practice, if the examined object shows defects such as cavities, cracks, big and less-absorbing matrix inclusions or thicker more-absorbing material parts, lighter or darker spots form on the plate, with an intensity proportional to the thickness of the defect, which appears delimited by its perspective projection.

Application
This method allows to point out a number of irregularities of industrial manufactures, casting or welding such as: porosity, inclusions, blowholes, cracks, tiny holes, slag inclusions, missed penetration. This method is ideal for examining steel tube welding but also for pieces manufactured by companies working in the aerospace and automotive industries. In TEC Eurolab S.r.l., this technique is used for checking welding, casting and precision casting.
