Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) Systems

2D and 3D Micro-Focus Non-Destructive X-Ray Testing and Inspection Systems

Shimadzu’s micro-focus non-destructive x-ray testing and inspection systems are widely used in many areas of research and development for morphological and structure alternation analyses, and for quality control purposes related to preproduction inspection, failure analysis, and lot inspection. Using micro-focus x-ray inspection systems provides many benefits. For instance, visualizing and measuring internal complex features without disassembling or damaging parts reduces inspection times and minimizes the risk of recalls by screening for manufacturing defects.


Our Passion

  • Our instruments feature user-friendly operation and sharp, good-contrast images
  • 2D x-ray inspection systems allow for real-time analysis
  • CT systems are calibration free and have high-speed data reconstruction and processing
  • Comprehensive safety features completely protect the operator against injury and radiation leakage
