Site Planning and Radiation Safety in a Non-destructive Testing Facility
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 […]
Temporary Radiation Shielding Rooms For Oncology
Upgrading your oncology center with new cancer treatment machines helps you better serve your patients. Unfortunately, this decision often requires you to build a new radiation shielding room to meet new protection requirements. Design and construction can take anywhere from two months to over a year to complete based on the changes needed. In the […]

Cost-Effective Radiation Therapy for Veterinarians
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 […]
FFD Solution For Industrial (RT) NDT
Industrial nondestructive testing (NDT) uses X-rays or gamma rays to inspect the internal structure of materials, parts, and assembled products. Industries also use NDT for inspecting the integrity of aircraft, automotive, satellites, or other large objects.
Understanding Radiation & Shielding
We have always been exposed to natural radiation coming from the earth and outer space. This type of radiation, known as cosmic radiation or cosmic rays, usually isn’t emitted at dangerous levels. However, exposure to radioactive materials or radiography equipment causes serious health risks.
Radiation Shielded Doors & Windows
At Matter Fabs, protecting people from radiation is our passion, and we follow strict guidelines when constructing radiation shielded rooms and doors. In all the industries we work in, we work hard to understand the needs of the operators, doctors, nurses, and physicists.
Medical Radiation Shielding
Continued Education for Practicing Medical Physicists
Physicists fulfill a very important role in medical, industrial, and many other fields. Diagnostic medical physicists contribute to the effectiveness of radiological imaging procedures by assuring radiation safety and improved imaging techniques. Therapeutic medical physicists contribute to the development of therapeutic techniques, collaborate with radiation oncologists to design treatment plans, and monitor equipment and procedures […]
Matter Fabs Automated Systems for Radiographic Testing
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. […]
Matter Fabs Vault Upgrade Solution
Radiation machines used for industrial application come in a range of different power levels and are sized based on the product being inspected. As time goes on, the product being inspected can change, or a new product may be introduced, making the current machine unable to properly inspect the product to the new specifications; so, […]
What is Nondestructive Radiographic Testing (RT)?
At Matter Fabs, we provide safety solutions for nondestructive testing (NDT) using radiographic testing (RT) for a variety of industries. NDT using RT is the process of inspecting and evaluating components like casting, welds, and vessels for any problems or differences in design intent characteristics without destroying the part. The components’ entire material can be […]
