Consumer Products – CT – XRAY – NDT Services

Jesse Garant Metrology Center streamlines the inspection process for today’s complex consumer products, providing a comprehensive solution for a variety of inspection needs

We are the nondestructive testing lab 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 testing of packaging, assemblies, and saleable products.

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 parts up to 44.5” in diameter by 63” in height. For even more testing options, we also offer radiographic testing and external 3D scanning services.

The versatility of our imaging systems means we can handle a great diversity of manufactured goods. 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 mixed materials. We provide inspection data for wide range of applications, including: wall thickness of packaging, leakage concerns with bottles and containers, failure investigation of household products, and validating fit and function of sporting goods.

Five 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.

Reverse Engineering: 

Generating internal surface data for complex consumer products can prove difficult for other inspection methods. But with industrial CT and 3D scanning manufacturers can quickly benchmark their designs and prototype models with high density surface data. Our advanced imaging services give crucial feedback on design iterations and for reverse engineering applications with relic or one of a kind components.
