Radiography image here

Radiographic inspection is used to help detect sub-surface flaws. It uses either X-Ray or a radiation source to penetrate the surface of the material and render an image onto film. From radiographic safety to everyday radiographic inspection we offer a wide variety of instruments to the industry.

  • Film Hangers
  • Film Viewers
  • Film Exposure Aids
  • Shims & Wedges
