X-ray diffraction (XRD) is a reliable decades-old technique for the analysis of residual stresses on a wide range of mechanical parts and materials in various industrial sectors.
For non-destructive testing or for depth analysis, in the laboratory or at your site, SONATS masters the measurement methods described in the reference standard EN 15305: Non-destructive testing – Test method for residual stress analysis by X-ray diffraction (XRD).
These measurements also comply with ASTM E2860: Standard test method for residual stress measurement by X-ray diffraction for bearing steels
SONATS will guide you in defining your needs and specifications, understanding the method, then analysing and evaluating the results.
