MAX (Miniature Advanced X-ray Diffraction System) is a compact, portable device that measures residual stresses in common engineering materials and retained austenite in ferrous materials (steels and cast irons).
The MAX system consists of hardware and software packaged in two rugged carrying cases for ease and mobility. This innovative new product was developed, with support from an Air Force SBIR program, to measure residual stresses in hard-to-access locations on aircraft.
Fast, Reliable Results
With measuring times as short as 2-3 minutes, rapid and appropriate decisions can be made regarding component assessment, rework or replacement.
The miniaturized system measurement head fits within a space as small as 8-inches in diameter. The user interface offers simple instructions for obtaining measurements quickly and easily – no special training is needed to make precise, reliable measurements.
