Xstress DR45 is a new generation of X-ray diffractometers that deliver high quality data faster than ever before.
X-ray diffraction (XRD) is an industry accepted method for determining residual stress in crystalline materials. This webinar is the second in a series of presentations providing current and future users with useful information on the operating fundamentals of XRD, technological advancements, and commercially available hardware, as well as examples of practical applications. Emphasis is placed on XRD for process optimization/validation and quality control.
As COVID-19 continues to spread, we are closely monitoring the ever-changing developments of this pandemic. Our first priority is the safety and well-being of our employees, customers, partners, and communities we surround ourselves with each day, while continuing to serve our customers and preserving the strength of our business. Our thoughts are with those directly affected by the virus and we wish to express our sincerest gratitude to those who find themselves on the frontline of the national efforts to combat the virus.
Did you know that Barkhausen noise turned 100 years in 2019? Read more about the 100 years' journey from science to industry.
The performance requirements of modern components in nearly every industry are ever increasing in parallel with constant efforts to reduce production cost and time. This has placed a greater importance on the understanding and control of process effects such as residual stress. X-ray diffraction (XRD) is a standardized and industry accepted method for determining residual stress in crystalline materials. This webinar provides a comprehensive explanation of the method with an emphasis on the value of residual stress depth profiles.

In September 2018, Flight Global reported on an incident that occurred on a commercial aircraft in which an axle fatigue crack led to a failure of the left nose landing gear axle and separation of the left nose wheel. “The cause of the abusive grinding could not be determined, but the abusive grinding would probably have been identified if a post-grinding Barkhausen inspection had been carried out.”
