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.
STRESSTECH Xstress 300 G2R, international reference equipment especially designed for the measurement of residual stresses for the characterisation of materials using X-ray diffraction (XRD)
The residual stress measurement by XRD’s service includes : needs and specifications definition, choosing and understanding of the method as well as analysing and evaluation the results.
