The Power of High Energy

With better penetration and better image quality, eliminate uncertain interpretations: the MeVx Series offers the most advanced systems on the market.

Inspection Services: High Energy X-Ray

Inspection of extremely dense and critical parts, such as those used in the defense, aerospace and automotive industries, is made possible with High Energy scanning.

Complex and large assemblies, nickel-based alloys, rocket engines and tanks, combustion chambers, engine blocks and turbine blades are just a few of the common applications that can be easily and rapidly scanned by the new MeVX6™ High Energy system.

The MeVX Series

The true cost of insufficient energy becomes clear when you need to find the right answers – fast. Penetration can be difficult with energies of 450 kV and less when inspecting large, thick or dense materials. Scatter, noise and beam hardening artifacts negatively impact the image reliability.

To improve not only penetration but also image quality, the MeVX6 uses a 6 MeV linear accelerator (LINAC).

High Energy X-Ray Systems

Linear Accelerators offer the most advanced industrial DR & CT systems on the market today. The MeVX series of systems provides energies of up to 9MeV, which gives users the same ease of use as our low energy systems but in a high-energy format.

These systems are in a league of their own, combining market-leading service, training and support with a top-of-the-range efX software platform.

High Energy Power

NSI’s MeVX6 has the power to penetrate the most challenging parts, thanks to its six million electron volts coupled with proprietary scatter reduction technology. This added penetration significantly reduces artifact, as evidenced with the Turbo Pump (displayed here).

Better defect detection, geometrical representations of part features and surfacing of volumetric data for nominal comparisons are all facilitated by the reduction of these artifacts.

Remove the Uncertainty: Accurately Represent the Data

The scanning capabilities of the MeVX Series can be used to accurately represent true data. Remove the question-marks around reliability and gain insight into data with increased measurement accuracy, feature clarity and overall image quality, thanks to higher penetration power.
