MAKING THE WORLD A SMARTER PLACE
The objectives of the filmfree project are to make a number of
technological advances that will take the digital industrial
radiography sector into a new era to effectively replace
film as the detecting media.
SMEs will play the major role in this development and as a result they will make significant commercial gains and growth from the digital radiography market place both within Europe (estimated at 150million Euros annually) and globally (estimated at between 800m & 1bn Euros pa). The lower technology NDT (Non Destructive Testing) service inspection companies, are mainly SMEs supplying labour intensive inspection services at low margins to traditional industries (e.g. engineering fabrication industry).
This website is for use by partners of the filmfree projects and anyone who is interested in learning more about the current advances in this field.
