Film Radiography is Declining in Industrial Testing Applications

DODGED THE DIGITAL DILEMMA

The shift from analog to digital technology has given a new lease of life for NDT applications in the industrial radiography market, thus, broadening the scope beyond traditional applications. Digital X-ray systems are proliferating with increased acceptance across all industry verticals, including highly regulated and traditionally conservative aerospace and automotive industries. The most significant contributing factor for this paradigm shift to digital X-ray systems is the cost-saving, which is 5-6 times more (in both computed and direct radiography) when compared to film-based systems.

I had some trepidation, as did my wife, as a few years ago I had gotten into flying model aircraft and after a spectacular crash, got out again, deeming it too expensive and needing far more skill than I had. Would this time be any different or would it be another few hundred pounds down the drain?

I bought a cheap drone – just 12 inches across, with a camera that did not transmit a live picture and so, for the princely sum of 60, I could be airborne again.
