X-ray computed tomography for characterizing structures and detecting failures in aerospace materials
One of the innovative methods used by CATEC to detect failures of aerospace components or other technology sectors is the x-ray computed tomography. Thanks to this technology CATEC works for characterizing aeronautic structures, improving traditional techniques which are today insufficient to the quality control in this kind of pieces and sets.

Used to locate surface and subsurface defects in many materials (metallic and compost, x-ray computed tomography is also used to inspect large areas in short inspection times and the advantage of portability of the required equipment and accessories.

This new technology together with other methods used by CATEC related to non-contact testing have very positive results and can be provided to companies if they want to develop their tests at the centre.
