MJC Optical Technology expertise: Optical techniques for non-destructive testing (sample application)

Optical techniques permit efficient detection of defects in transparent and translucent plastics, such as this crack (a short thin horizontal line at the center of the image) in knurled tubing . The crack, difficult to spot visually under normal illumination, is clearly visible when appropriately illuminated. High contrast.of the image creates excellent conditions for efficient detection of such defects by an automated sensor system. Published with permission of a client.
