Going Beyond Pass/Fail with Automatic Defect Recognition (ADR)

X-ray inspection has long been a preferred way to obtain non-destructive quality data on manufactured parts. With the advent of digital X-ray systems, improved imaging capabilities, and more powerful computers, many manufacturers have come to rely on non-destructive X-ray test systems to make pass/fail decisions on individual parts. This is called Automatic Defect Recognition or ADR.
