High Energy X-ray Inspection

MeVX6 High Energy System

High Energy scanning allows inspection of extremely dense and critical parts such as those used in the aerospace, defense, and automotive industries. Common applications that are readily scanned by our MeVX6™ High Energy system include large and complex assemblies, rocket engines and tanks, nickel-based alloys, combustion chambers, engine blocks, turbine blades and more.

MeVX6 - Better Penetration, Better Image Quality


When you need to have the answers, what's the true cost of not having enough energy? When inspecting large, dense, or thick materials; penetration can be difficult with energies of 450 kV and less. Noise, Scatter, and beam hardening artifacts negatively impact the image fidelity. The MeVX6 uses a 6 MeV linear accelerator (LINAC) to not only improve penetration but also image quality.


Six million electron volts paired with proprietary scatter reduction technology; NSI’s MeVX6 has the power to get through your most difficult parts. As you can see with the Turbo Pump shown here, the added penetration significantly reduces artifacts. The reduction of these artifacts allows for better defect detection, geometrical representations of part features, and surfacing of volumetric data for nominal comparisons.

Accurately represent your true data with the MeVX6! Remove the questionable interpretation and gain insight into better data. Increase measurement accuracy, feature clarity, and overall image quality with higher penetration power.
