The Quad Plus Gauging team provided the customer with a non-nuclear scanning system. The Terahertz sensor in their new system does not produce any harmful ionizing radiation. That means that employees can safely use the system with no special licensing requirements or additional personnel present.
The new solution is also scanning nine times quicker than the gamma backscatter scanner we replaced and provides measurement updates at a rate of 1000 per second. The customer will enjoy a faster scanning system and a higher resolution of samples allowing for tighter process control, thinning of costly layers of product, and a superior product to provide to their customers.
We also successfully removed all sources of harmful ionizing radiation. This means a safer work environment for all employees as well as reduced expenses related to maintenance and training. The final result is less equipment to maintain, fewer complications with licensure and specially-qualified personnel, and a faster, more accurate gauging system.
