In various industries, foundry is an important part of the
production process and the use of hollow castings is very common to reduce
weight and energy consumption. Samples of castings require careful inspection
to ensure conformity at the end of the production cycle, highlighting the
importance of checking internal and non-accessible parts. Industrial
tomography, using X-rays, is emerging as the only non-destructive testing
technology that provides a complete view right to the very heart of the material.
Oil & Gaz
Although not popular, the complex fossil fuel sector is at
the heart of the global economy, requiring constant reinvention to improve its
efficiency and competitiveness, both economically and above all ecologically.
In this rapid transformation, X-ray tomography is emerging as a key player,
particularly in the oil industry.
Upstream, the location and extraction of new deposits
remains a strategic issue. Geologists, pioneers of X-ray microtomography, use
this technology to obtain three-dimensional information on the composition of
rock cores, thereby mapping geological systems. Exploration is carried out both
in the field and in the laboratory, enabling hydrocarbon reservoirs to be found
and precisely characterized. Explore how our expertise in X-ray tomography is
contributing to this revolution in the oil industry, promoting more efficient
and informed exploration processes.
Polymers & Elastomers
Companies working with plastics face major challenges in
terms of quality, productivity and time-to-market. In the plastics and rubber
industries, quality standards have become stricter than ever, covering a wide
range of areas, from economics to ecology and quality.
Whatever the application, whether it's phone covers,
ecocups, stoppers, computers, bottles, bin liners, etc., X-ray tomography
offers countless advantages. Plastic parts, which are easily penetrated by
X-rays, benefit from this technology throughout the process, from the
development of prototypes to quality control on production lines, as well as
the optimization of molds.
