Site Planning and Radiation Safety in a Non-destructive Testing Facility

by Maddie Kaiser, Posted on

Performing radiographic testing in-house offers several conveniences over outsourcing the service. However, some facilities might feel in-house NDT is unattainable due to space limitations or cost. While there are upfront expenses associated with non-destructive testing radiation room construction, the fast payback makes it worth the investment. Using modular, temporary non-destructing testing radiation vaults makes in-house […]

Cost-Effective Radiation Therapy for Veterinarians

by Matter Fabs, Posted on

Veterinary clinics traditionally use LINAC machines (linear accelerators) to treat animals with radiation therapy for cancer. These treatments are done one to three times per week on average for several weeks. The ability to offer these services on-site is beneficial for veterinary clinics and their clients. However, many veterinarians cannot afford the cost of LINAC machines […]

Matter Fabs Automated Systems for Radiographic Testing

by Matter Fabs, Posted on

When using Radiographic Testing (RT) for Non-Destructive Testing (NDT), a large portion of time is initially spent setting up and positioning the parts to inspect, setting the RT machine into shooting position, and setting the film into position. This process must be completed for each inspection, maneuvering and repositioning the parts for different inspection positions. […]
