Jesse Garant Metrology Center streamlines the inspection process for today’s consumer product companies, by providing an internal part validation service using X-Ray and CT Scanning technology
We are the nondestructive testing manufacturers trust to ensure the consistency and quality of their products. With the latest imaging technology, we provide quick and accurate inspection of everyday consumer products, including inspection of packaging, product assemblies, and saleable items.
Our NDT lab is equipped with a full suite of advanced imaging capabilities. We have the greatest diversity of industrial computed tomography systems in North America, including an exclusive high energy CT system for rapid testing of larger parts up to 44.5” in diameter by 63” in height. For even more testing options, we also offer radiographic testing when high volume inspection is required of internal geometry.
The versatility of our imaging systems means we can match the manufactured goods to the proper system. Our NDT systems inspect complex components and assemblies of a variety of sizes, shapes, and densities, as well as diverse materials, from plastics and glass to high density and
Four Testing Methods to Ensure Quality Control in Consumer Products:
- Pre-production Inspection
Nondestructive testing using industrial CT qualifies consumer products before production begins, ensuring that they’ll be manufactured to original designs and with consistent quality. Our industrial CT services identify defects in preliminary components and validate fit and function of first run products without destroying or altering them. We also obtain precise dimensional data for satisfying First Article Inspection requirements. Part to CAD and Part to Part Comparisons are also available with CT and 3D scanning for validation of multi-cavity tooling and parts
- Production Inspection
Our CT services give critical feedback of manufacturing processes during production through rapid part inspection. We provide testing services during specific or random intervals to qualify parts before they reach the consumer and to check that production processes are optimal. For high value consumer products, 100% inspection with CT during production is also available.
- Part Sorting
Industrial x-ray is the perfect fit for sorting of mass produced consumer products. We take the guesswork out of quarantined, warranty, or recalled components with a traceable and repeatable inspection process. For lot inspection of low volume, high value parts, industrial CT is another option.
- Failure Investigation
Industrial computed tomography is the ideal NDT method for internal inspection of the whole range of consumer products. It preserves the original condition of failed products with only minimal fixturing during testing. Our services provide data for virtually all defects types, both external and internal, including: porosities, voids, and cracks, assembly misalignments, inconsistent wall thickness, electrical shorts, and internal fiber inspection for checking structural integrity.
