Defense & Arms – CT – XRAY – NDT Services

As an ITAR-certified company, we understand the rigorous testing required for military applications and give peace of mind when working with sensitive data

Jesse Garant Metrology Center is the nondestructive testing lab defense industries trust to ensure their parts always meet quality requirements. With industrial CT, radiographic testing, and 3D scanning, our NDT lab validates the latest defense innovations, as the industry invests in advanced materials, complex structures, and additive manufacturing.

We are equipped with the greatest diversity of industrial computed tomography systems in North America, including an exclusive high-energy CT system for rapid inspection of larger parts and assemblies. We also have a full suite of industrial x-ray testing and external 3D scanning capabilities. With a traceable nondestructive inspection processes customized to client needs, we deliver accurate and unbiased data for all stages of defense manufacturing.

Our versatile NDT systems can inspect defense and military products made from a wide range of materials like carbon fiber composites, Kevlar, high and low-density metal castings, and rare earth materials. We can accommodate CT and x-ray testing of parts up to 44.5” in diameter by 63” inches in height, including complex engineered products, munitions, projectiles, turbines, pumps, valves, electric motors, and engine components.

Five Ways to Improve Quality Control within the Defense Industry:

Pre-production Inspection: 

For validating part conformity to original design dimensions, our precise industrial CT systems generate accurate metrology data for ensuring quality during the pre-production stage. We obtain high-density measurement data for validating external and internal part geometries and fit and function of complex assemblies for AS9102 Form 3 reporting requirements for First Article Inspection (FAI)/First Piece Inspection (FPI). For external inspection of parts, we also offer 3D scanning as another option.

Production Inspection: 

To qualify parts and assemblies before they reach their final destination, we provide offline production inspection ideal for high value and/or must run defense and military applications. Industrial CT conducted at specified intervals can identify defects, validate dimensions, and verify new or existing production processes. FAI/FPI with industrial CT is also available during the production stage.

Part Sorting: 

Our industrial x-ray testing services provide a customized and highly repeatable inspection process for part sorting and lot inspection. We take the guesswork out of quarantined or recalled parts, using detailed data to isolate suspect parts while reintroducing good parts back into production. Industrial CT is also available for part sorting of lower volume lots for high value parts.

Failure Investigation: 

Industrial computed tomography is the ideal nondestructive tool for conducting failure analysis of complex military components. CT is a non-contact NDT method that preserves original failure conditions and reveals any internal failures without having to destroy the part. Our industrial CT services fast-track the inspection process and save costs by quickly generating accurate data for failure analysis.

Reverse Engineering: 

For benchmarking part designs and prototyping for military and defense applications, industrial computed tomography and 3D scanning are invaluable tools. Our advanced systems generate precise, accurate metrology data to provide design feedback and reverse engineering of relic or one of a kind parts. Part to CAD and Part to Part comparisons are also available with CT and 3D scanning.
