For over 30 years Alternate Systems has been specializing in XRF to test coating and plating applications to determine composition and thickness and calibrate XRF Standards. With this non-destructive and robust technology, we are capable of analyzing an assortment of layers and elementsc with highly effective results. X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) Spectroscopy is the analysis of materials by exciting atoms using x-ray radiation.
NDT testing (Non Destructive testing) has many analysis technique options to detect surface and sub-surface defects without harming materials and components or affecting their operating performance. Due to NDT testing not altering what is being inspected it can save time and money in product evaluation, troubleshooting issues, and research.
Common techniques are: ultrasonic, magnetic-particle, remote visual inspection (RVI), eddy-current testing, liquid penetrate, radiographic, and low coherence interferometer.
Additional terms used for this technology are: nondestructive examination (NDE), nondestructive inspection (NDI), and nondestructive evaluation (NDE).
Non Destructive testing is commonly used for weld verification or structural mechanics.
Alternate Systems can calibrate a wide array of Non Destructive Testing services such as ultrasonic testing, X-ray Inspection, XRF testing and much more, all to industry and government standards.
Alternate Systems has developed novel applications for measurement for a variety of clients.
