North Star Imaging (NSI) has announced the move of its Inspection Services business on the US West Coast to a much larger testing facility in Aliso Viejo, California. It says the new facility provides greater space for expansion, more warehousing for larger parts to be brought in for x-ray scanning services, and increased room to introduce new innovations as the business continues to grow.
The move is encouraging news given the pressures the Covid-19 pandemic has placed on all areas of industry. “We know that this year is, and continues to be, a very hard year for everyone. Nonetheless, as a business we are all very excited by this move as it signifies the confidence that our parent company, ITW, has in our growth plans for the West Coast,” said David Nokk, manager for NSI’s US Inspection Services business.
NSI’s new facility will boast a range of x-ray inspection systems, including the company’s X3000 and X5000 machines, as well as an X5000 equipped with a 450kV x-ray. In practice, this means there is the capability to scan objects from as small as a few microns to as large as a 50-gallon barrel, including multiple batch scans.
