Light bulb

A simple example of the X-ray imaging capabilities of this technology is with a normal filament-type light bulb.

A digital X-ray image (obtained in a few minutes) is shown, providing useful information on the location of different materials and providing an inside view, though in 2D only. This type of imaging is a standard NDT methodology which we also offer.

However, our focus is on the full 3D information demonstrated with the same example in the next figure. Here, the different materials have been given different colours to highlight the differences and ability to distinguish them from one another, and a virtual cut displays the inner details in 3D.
