New! PPL celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. For that reason, we will present a small celebration party to share the joy with everyone we will inform you.
We were given X-ray CT inspection of engine block.As well as the internal structure of a engine block, you can see a position and the shape of voids in a casting at first sight. This CT imaging took only 30 minutes.
 The homepage has been redesigned.
We updated our present condition page of Facebook.
 We will be exhibiting at the 7th Non-Destructive Evaluation TOKYO, held at Tokyo Big Sight from July 22 to 24. Our booth is 2F-03, located at East No. 2 Hall. We look forward to seeing you there.
Our affiliated company, Omi mirrorcle center LLC, has been renamed as Mirrorcle center Co., Ltd. as of May 13, 2015.
We exhibited at the 2nd Metal Japan (Highly-functional Metal Expo), held at Tokyo Big Sight from April 6 to 8. We would like to thank those of you who visited our booth. Click here for the exhibition poster.
We have been commissioned the inspection of a dismantled bridge by the Public Works Research Institute located in Tsukuba. The work was successfully completed using our MIC1 model magnetron.
We have been commissioned the inspection of a turbo engine by an automobile manufacturer.
• We have released the MIC1 model magnetron. Although lightweight (300 kg), it is more powerful than a klystron.
A MIC1-CT system was delivered to a major corporation in Osaka, along with a shielding chamber. This is a 1 MeV microtron that can generate X-rays capable of penetrating 15-cm-thick steel; besides, it can achieve a spatial resolution of up to 0.3 mm. Both the penetration and resolution capabilities are vastly superior to those of conventional electron accelerators, bringing X-ray CT into a new era.
A MICROTRON resolution of 0.2 mm was experimentally demonstrated—refer to the image here.
We have received a purchase order of MIRRORCLE-CV4 from Hitachi, Ltd for X-ray CT.
