Porosity check of aluminium weld seams as a part of quality control

20.09.2016

In a previous bit of news, we announced the use of Keller etching acid in quality control of aluminium weld seams (see www.toptester.com news).

Toptester is using Phoenix Benchmate x-ray equipment. X-ray is a fast and reliable tool in studying the aluminium weld seam quality. Seam porosity is revealed clearly and the porosity can be measured using the control software.

In close future, we will handle the significance of humidity in the aluminium sample during welding and it’s impact on porosity. Stay tuned!
