Non-destructive Testing

Our research focuses on the development of efficient testing methods and systems based on X-ray and optical technology. Our solutions make it possible to characterize materials and test components without degrading their functionality. We can perform tests on items of any scale, from microscopically small objects to entire vehicles. The services we offer include 2D and 3D optical testing and measurement, X-ray sensors and simulation, image processing, system design, and applications and training.
