As an ITAR-certified company, we understand the care and accountability required for military applications and rely heavily on our own internal systems to provide only the highest quality CT Scanning & X-Ray inspection services
Jesse Garant Metrology Center is the nondestructive testing lab defense manufacturers trust to ensure their parts always meet quality requirements. With industrial CT and radiographic testing, 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. With a traceable nondestructive inspection processes customized to client needs, we deliver accurate and unbiased data for all stages of defense manufacturing including short run failure investigations.
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, castings, turbine blades, pumps, valves, electric motors, and engine components.
Four 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 internal data for ensuring quality during the pre-production stage. We obtain high-density measurement data for validating external and internal part geometries to CAD variations in addition to AS9102 Form 3 reporting requirements for (FAI) First Article Inspection / (FPI) First Piece Inspection. For external inspection of parts, we also offer 3D scanning as another option.
- Production Inspection
For production defense components, Industrial CT Scanning is our premier offering for parts in must run applications. For limited run applications we develop robust and repeatable production inspection processes custom tailored to the projects objective. With over a decade inspecting products for major aerospace and defense companies, manufacturers quickly realize the benefit of outsourcing computed tomography inspection services to a specialized company.
- 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.
