Cost-Effective Radiation Therapy for Veterinarians

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 […]

What is Radiographic Testing (RT)?

Posted on

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 […]

Options For NDT Companies That Lease Space

Posted on

Non-destructive testing (NDT) companies sometimes find themselves restricted when wanting to add a larger KV or MV testing vault to an existing facility because they do not own the building. These larger NDT vaults become a permanent part of the building. When renting or leasing the building, the building owner generally prohibits companies from adding […]
