Flaw Tester Criterion NDT, Inc. announces the launch of their new CR-11 crack and flaw testing instrument. The CR-11 is designed to operate on production lines enabling manufacturers to inspect 100% of their products during the manufacturing process. This lets manufacturers find problems in real-time. The CR-11 is intended for use within the automotive and medical component testing markets. The CR-11’s low noise, high sensitivity electronics is designed to detect the smallest flaws within a component using eddy current technology. A Windows based color touch-screen User interface makes the CR-11 very easy to set-up and operate. Multiple USB ports, Ethernet connectivity and Industrial I/O gives the CR-11 the ability to easily connect to production lines and material handling systems.The CR-11 has a rugged all aluminum enclosure designed for tough production environments and can use existing Criterion NDT eddy current probes and coils. Criterion NDT http://www.criterionndt.com CT Scanning Service Nvision, Inc. reports that an increasing number of its contract scanning services now involve CT scanning for reverse engineering, and inspection and measurement of medical components and surgical tools. Excellent results from CT scanning can be achieved on non-metallic components Fit-ting within an envelope of 150mm diameter. Small plastic medical components are therefore ideal candidates for CT scanning. However, larger metal parts can also be CT scanned.The output received from the CT scanner is a STL (stereo lithography) format file, which is opened in specialized software for inspection against a CAD file, or used to create a CAD file in the customer’s required native format such SolidWorks, Siemines NX, Catia, Pro E, and Inventor.

Typical applications include thin-wall thickness measurements on blow molded plastic bottles, thermal-formed plastic trays, extruded tubing, and automotive tear seams. The Magna-Mike 8600 can also be used on glass and composites, and on any nonferrous metal (aluminum, brass, copper, titanium) with a thickness range from 0.001 mm up to25. 4 mm (0.0001 in. To 1 in.). Measurements are extremely simple: a magnetic probe is held or scanned on one side of the test material while a small target ball is placed on the opposite side or dropped inside a container.The probe’s Hall Effect sensor measures the distance between the probe tip and the target ball, which is instantly displayed as an easy-to-read digital thickness reading. Material properties do not affect the accuracy of the measurement. The Magna-Mike 8600 offers both straight and angled magnetic probes that feature replaceable wear caps to extend the probe’s durability and reduce replacement costs. An expanded assortment of magnetic and non-magnetic steel target balls, disks and wire targets makes the Magna-Mike 8600 the ideal instrument for applications with complex geometry where ultrasonic thickness measurements are difficult or impossible. Nondestructive measurement capabilities allow for pin-point thickness readings in tight Corners and grooves.
