TITAL optimizing Quality Control

TITAL is the first company in the casting industry to introduce digital radiography as a process for quality control. Being a company which regularly supplies the highly sensitive aerospace industry TITAL recognizes the critical importance to always supply products according to the very highest quality standards. For years TITAL has been leading the casting industry in terms of superior quality control and now sets the standard as the first company in its industry to introduce digital radiography.

"We can continue to offer innovative and market-oriented solutions for both our production technologies and testing processes", Berthold Busch, Head of Quality Management at TITAL, underlines their motivation to further increase quality standards.

The process of digital radiography is currently in the qualification stage and will enter the normal inspection process once it has successfully passed qualification. Digital radiography is a form of x-ray imaging, where digital x-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic films to detect material defects within the casting.

The new method will clearly speed up the inspection process - the results are repeatable and can be saved in a digital format. This will allow TITAL not only to permanently save the testing results, but also to provide their customers the data directly without any additional costs for expensive x-ray films. The time efficiency and the ability to digitally transfer and enhanced images make digital x-ray superior to traditional film technique methods. "We invested a six digit amount in this new technology in order to apply digital radiography and have made some good progress with the qualification", Berthold Busch explains. Currently TITAL utilizes real-time, digital and film technique x-ray processes in parallel. However, Busch thinks that digital radiography will completely replace the two other processes in the foreseeable future.
