NDT X-Ray Tubes for Non-Destructive Testing
NDT X-Ray Tubes for Radiographic Products
AXT also supplies a line of industrial X-ray tubes for NDT applications dealing with x-ray cargo inspection and thickness gauging. These include a product line that consists of a broad range of glass and ceramic NDT x-ray tubes providing a variety of target angles, focal spots, and power capabilities. For inspection applications that require different imaging parameters, AXT offer dual and single focus NDT x-ray tubes with small focal spots for high-resolution imaging. In addition, AXT offers X-ray tubes with Beryllium (Be) windows for low inherent filtration.

Non-Destructive Testing (NDT)
Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) is now a common part of quality control operations used to examine components prior to dispatch for any defects that may result in premature failure and to ensure asset integrity. Furthermore, with increasing levels of litigation, more responsibility is placed on the manufacturer to warrant products, leading to an increase in popularity of NDT techniques and products.
While commonly used as part of a pre-dispatch quality control process, NDT techniques can also be used to assess components in service and even in-situ such as pipelines and other engineering structures.
One common technique used in NDT is radiographic testing, sometimes called industrial radiography. This method is similar to medical radiography method and is able to detect flaws using x-rays. AXT can supply replacement x-ray tubes from Varian and Comet or complete radiographic NDT systems from Rigaku and Yxlon.
Radiographic NDT techniques are also used for baggage inspection at airports and mail/package inspection at mail/freight sorting facilities.
