Non-destructive testing and quality control with the x-ray TDI camera from NTB
In the area of non-destructive testing and quality control the x-ray TDI camera is an advancement of NTB’s linescan x-ray cameras. It is the result of an extensive research and development program in the field of digital x-ray imaging. The unsurpassed performance of the TDI camera provides both excellent image quality and high scanning speed at the same time.
How the x-ray TDI camera works
TDI (Time Delay and Integration) is a special sensor technology: The TDI camera does not have only one single line like standard linescan cameras, but instead it has 128 lines. During the scan, the acquired signal of the first line is, synchronously to the movement of the object, passed on to the second line. This process is repeated line by line. In that way, the image information propagates through the sensor, parallel to the object, and each sensor line adds its partial exposure to the image. At the end, each scanned line of the acquired image is accumulated by 128 sensor lines. The accumulation drastically increases the sensitivity of the sensor.
