Sinto America launched Sightia™, a new surface evaluation technology that provides real time, non-destructive quality assurance checks for pre and post blasting or peening processes.

Sightia™ is a class of technology encompassing a group of non-destructive testing equipment and services suitable for harsh industrial environment developed by Sinto America to evaluate surface properties of parts undergoing surface treatment processes delivering accurate and repeatable results.

Sinto, a global turnkey industrial solutions provider, wants customers who are currently facing surface defects in their parts at different stages of manufacturing, such as casting, machining, heat treatment, and surface treatment processes to overcome the challenges with the help of Sightia™ devices. Sightia is applicable for evaluating gears, springs, pins, fasteners, and other cylindrical parts used within the automotive, aerospace, railway, infrastructure, construction, and die-casting industries.

“This technology makes accurate, fast, and consistent x-ray diffraction measurement possible. Sightia products are now proven in both the laboratory and in the field. Sightia allows for 100 percent quality check on every part produced affordably and implementation is simple with Sinto’s PSMX-II,” saidCharlie Gorman, VP Sinto surface treatment.

Sightia’s ECNI-I non-destructive peening inspection instrument is used for detecting variation in machining, peening coverage, and heat treatment. ECNI can detect defects on the surface of parts in just three seconds ensuring 100 percent inspection without slowing down the production flow at all.

Sightia’s PSMX-II x-ray residual stress measurement device measures each product’s surface residual stress without destroying it. With the PSMX-II, you can collect residual stress data, after they have been peened, in only 10 seconds. It is possible to inspect in-line by integration the technology into existing processes, making in-process quality control possible and minimizes distribution of defective products.
