Nondestructive Testing

James Instruments Inc., Chicago IL, USA
3727 N. Kedzie Avenue, Chicago, IL 60618 – 4545, USA

James Instruments Inc. specialises in Non-Destructive Testing equipment for concrete and other construction materials. Central to the improvement of the construction infrastructure are tools that evaluate the condition of existing construction. Destructive and Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) techniques are applied. Destructive tests can provide direct information, but are relatively expensive, time-consuming and cause damage to the structure. Destructive test results often cannot be evaluated using statistical approaches because the number of locations in the structure that can be tested without damage to the structure is limited. On the other hand, Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) techniques are relatively inexpensive to apply, and they can detect, localize, and characterize flaws and damage in concrete, wood and other construction material structures without leaving any undesirable discontinuities or causing damage to concrete members.

James Instruments Inc. is a leading manufacturer of non-destructive test equipment for construction materials. Specifically we design, manufacture and sell the most advanced equipment to test concrete, ceramic, wood, masonry, mortar, gypsum and other coarse grained materials. We supply the instruments that: measure strength, both compressive and tensile, locate rebar and other objects in concrete and masonry, determine density and analyze materials ultrasonically, analyze corrosion and, finally, determine moisture in concrete and other construction materials. And more. James Instruments Inc. — rugged, quality equipment for field use — backed by factory service and an ongoing program of research and development.

R&D Applications
SWIR Imaging: SWIR or Short-Wave infrared imaging covers the wavelength range from 700 nm to approximately 2500 nm and is suitable for low light applications.
Spectroscopy & Microscopy: SWIR spectroscopy is a valuable tool to classify products. SWIR microscopy is typically used to inspect micro-electronic circuits on chip or wafer level.
Short integration time imaging: Laser gated imaging with short integration time allows imaging at long ranges through haze, smoke, fog or dust.
Low-light-level imaging: Low-light-level imaging in semiconductor microscopy applications is used for fault localization in microelectronic failure analysis.
High speed imaging: High speed imaging is taking pictures at a high frame rate using a short exposure time. We offer the world’s fastest SWIR InGaAs camera and versatile MWIR cameras.
Homeland security R&D & Image fusion: Homeland security is mainly focused on critical infrastructure protection. Image fusion is a great technique as it combines SWIR and LWIR images, resulting in the best of both worlds.
Thermography & NDT: Thermography is widely used in applications where contact-thermometry cannot be used to measure temperature.

ElektroPhysik USA, Arlington Heights IL, USA
778 W. Algonquin Road, Arlington Heights, IL 60005, USA

ElektroPhysik is one of the leading manufacturers of measuring instruments used for advancing surface technology, research and quality control. Being a pioneer in the field of non-destructive coating thickness measurement, ElektroPhysik, in cooperation with national and international standardizing institutes and universities has successfully advanced new product developments along with international standardization of the coating thickness measurement.
ElektroPhysik privately held company owned and managed by the Steingroever family. It is headquarters are in Köln Germany near the famous Rein River. ElektroPhysik still occupies the original building though it has gone through many expansions over the years to facilitate growth.
ElektroPhysik maintains branch offices including the U.S.A. and is represented by distributors and agents globally in almost every country in the world. It is this network and partnerships that enable ElektroPhysik to service its customers and provide the support required in today’s competitive global marketplace.
The first coating thickness testing gauge was developed by Dr. Steingroever. Utilizing the Magnetic Attraction principle, it was called the MikroTest (still manufactured today and even available in digital display format, it probably remains the most utilized coating thickness testing device utilized, even today) . Magnetic Attraction is a very reliable technique for measuring coatings however its only drawback is that it only works with coatings applied over ferrous materials such as steel and iron.
However, the Magnetic Attraction principle paved the way for the development of analog devices. First using Eddy Current and then later Magnetic Induction, these devices expanded coating thickness testing beyond just corrosion control.
Today all three of these principles are used to non-destructively measure a variety of coatings. Magnetic Attraction is the measuring principle used in the MikroTest, PenTest and MiniPen by ElektroPhysik.
Magnetic Induction is the measuring principle of choice for ferrous metal substrate application while the Eddy Current principle is the measuring principle of choice for non-ferrous metal substrate applications.
Both of these measuring principles are found in the MiniTest family of gauges as well as the eXacto by ElektroPhysik.
More recently ElektroPhysik developed yet another measuring principle primarily for non-metal substrate applications such plastic and wood. The QuintSonic utilizes a high level ultrasound approach which has enabled measurements to be conducted on these types of substrates non-destructively.
On April 20, 2007 ElektroPhysik launched a new model, the MiniTest 700 Series with SIDSP® digital sensor technology.
SIDSP® is an ElektroPhysik exclusive which took years of research and development. SIDSP® stands for Sensor Integrated Digital Signal Processing and the way that works is that entire coating thickness measurement is processed in the sensor at the point of measurement. SIDSP® is unlike previous conventional techniques where an analog signal was generated at the sensor and then that signal would be sent to a host gauge to processing. The vulnerability with that technique was that it was susceptible to environmental influences such as strong electro-magnetic fields and other signal disturbances that could affect the analog signal and therefore the reading.
