North Star Imaging

High Wycombe, UK

Our new state of the art UK laboratory is located in High Wycombe at the European Head office of Instron (www.instron.co.uk).  This lab houses a North Star Imaging X5000 CT system which has a scanning area of 1.2m by 0.8m and utilises a 240kV microfocus X-ray tube and a 40cm x 40cm, 100um  pixel pitch detector.  With this system we can scan samples from around 1cm in size up to the maximum 1.2m tall scanning envelope and can achieve a best resolution in the region of 5um.

Our laboratory provides industrial DR (digital radiography) and CT (computed tomography) services for:

  • Internal measurements
  • 3D CAD comparisons
  • Void and/or porosity analysis
  • Surface reconstructions for reverse engineering
  • Finite Element Analysis
  • Failure Analysis
