Radiography of components

Piston of a model airplane engine - enlarged view

Stroboscopic radiography of a model airplane engine at 1200 revolutions per minute. Four different phases for the position of the piston are shown.

Radiography allows non-destructive insights into the interior of components and components. In particular, the combination of this technique with the unique properties of different types of radiation (neutrons, X-rays) opens up a wide field of industrial applications. The material-dependent attenuation of the radiation used in the objects to be examined is used to 'illuminate' the internal structure.
