Overview
North Star Imaging ranks among the most sophisticated resources for digital real-time non-destructive testing (NDT) equipment, services, training, supplies and accessories. Highly-trained, innovative engineers design and build the complete line and custom state-of-the-art Digital X-ray and Computed Tomography (CT) systems. Recently, NSI was acquired by Illinois Tool Works (ITW). As the domestic leading manufacturer in the Nondestructive Testing Industry, NSI is highly recognized for Turn-Key 2D Digital X-ray as well as 3D X-ray CT. Industrial X-ray scanning is frequently used for R&D, Failure Analysis, Quality Control / Assurance, Internal Measurements, High-Speed 3D Scanning, 3D Metrology and more. X-ray scanning allows users to view and inspect both the external and internal structures of a part or object without opening it up or otherwise destroying the item. North Star Imaging's technology is used by many different markets including Medical Devices, Electronics, Aerospace, Castings, Plastics, Research and more. NSI's efX CT series integrates the most powerful CT reconstruction and visualization software available, including modules for calibration, measurement, real-time density segmentation and surface extraction (point cloud and CAD capabilities).
Products & Services
2D X-RAY SCANNING SERVICES

Real-Time X-Ray Inspection of All Your Parts - No More Waiting for Film to Process

See inside your products without destroying them. Our 2D Digital Radiography (DR) X-ray inspection services use the most advanced X-ray systems to let you see beyond the surface of your product.

2D Digital Radiography X-Ray Scanning Services

Digital Radiography is a 2D X-ray inspection method using a digital X-ray detector in place of X-ray film. You can make scan adjustments on the fly and apply digital image enhancements quickly and easily.

North Star Imaging is ISO 9001:2015 certified, ITAR registered/compliant, ASTM compliant, DOD 4145.26-M Compliant, and has ASNT & NAS 410 Level III certified employees.

Available 2D Digital Radiography Services Include:

  • Real-time product analysis helping you to identify the configuration, integrity and quality level of internal components.
  • We will assist in your failure analysis efforts by providing high-resolution x-ray imaging from every conceivable angle and view.
  • Live manipulation of your product while x-ray imaging to determine what is occurring under load and operation.
  • Product screening for detection of contamination and/or foreign material FOD.
  • And much more.
HIGH ENERGY X-RAY SCANNING SERVICES

Remove the Questionable Interpretation - Better Penetration, Better Image Quality

High Energy X-Ray Inspection Services

High Energy scanning allows inspection of extremely dense and critical parts such as those used in the aerospace, defense, and automotive industries. Common applications that are readily scanned by our MeVX6™ High Energy system include large and complex assemblies, rocket engines and tanks, nickel-based alloys, combustion chambers, engine blocks, turbine blades and more.

The MeVX Series

When you need to have the answers, what’s the true cost of not having enough energy? When inspecting large, dense, or thick materials; penetration can be difficult with energies of 450 kV and less. Noise, Scatter, and beam hardening artifacts negatively impact the image fidelity. The MeVX9 uses a 9 MeV linear accelerator (LINAC) to not only improve penetration but also image quality.

The Power of High Energy

Nine million electron volts paired with proprietary scatter reduction technology; NSI’s MeVX9 has the power to get through your most difficult parts. As you can see with the Turbo Pump shown here, the added penetration significantly reduces artifacts. The reduction of these artifacts allows for better defect detection, geometrical representations of part features, and surfacing of volumetric data for nominal comparisons.

Remove the Questionable

Accurately represent your true data with our MeVX Series scanning capabilities. Remove the questionable interpretation and gain insight into better data. Increase measurement accuracy, feature clarity, and overall image quality with higher penetration power.
