Some Applications of X-ray Inspection to Production Problems


The problem of applying X-ray inspection to the manifold phases of War Production is of considerable general interest, and may be ascribed to two specific causes. One is the high-volume production of cast light alloys and other metals required for aircraft construction. The second is the extension of high-strength steel castings into new fields formerly dominated by forgings. Special applications and Government specifications probably also account for a considerable extension of X-ray inspection in some fields.
