2-Dimensional x-ray inspections services involve capturing 2D images in a “live” or “realtime” mode while viewing the part on the monitor. The x-rays pass thru the part and are converted to an electronic signal via a digital detector. Those images are then viewed on the monitor and can be captured as static images or as a video. The benefits are that it is a “live” method and allows you to continuously position the part until the desired view is shown, potentially capturing hundreds of images during the process. The limitations of 2D imaging are that the method does not provide any “depth” to the images and, because it is a transmission method, everything from the front of the part to the back is superimposed in the 2D image, potentially covering up details.
