Digital radiography and computed tomography (CT) are powerful imaging tools that allow manufacturers to assess the quality of their products after final assembly. Bak USA, a manufacturer of ruggedized laptops and tablets, engaged EWI with a need to understand which technology would be most appropriate to assess the final build quality of their hardened hand-built products. EWI used both techniques to analyze a tablet with manufactured defects representative of the most common issues seen during quality checks, as well as a defect-free device. Based on these analyses, EWI recommended a real-time nondestructive evaluation technique that will allow Bak to ensure that their products will consistently meet their stringent quality standards.snip Kitt Lee
