Phoenix, LLC, unveiled its Phoenix Neutron Imaging Center (PNIC), located in the Uptown neighborhood on the east side of Fitchburg, Wis., last Friday.
According to a release, the PNIC is the first industrial radiography facility to provide both X-ray and neutron imaging services. Construction began in late 2018.
“PNIC represents a critical milestone on Phoenix’s journey to make high-performance, reliable and safe nuclear technology more broadly available to any industry,” Phoenix President Evan Sengbusch said in a statement. “This facility will provide unprecedented access to a wide range of industrial radiography methods to nondestructive testing professionals in many manufacturing industries, including aerospace and defense.”
Phoenix describes neutron imaging as a non-destructive testing method that provides detailed information on the internal structure of objects and reveals features that other methods cannot.
As previously reported, the Monona-based Phoenix will move its corporate headquarters to the same area as the PNIC. Construction will begin this year, with occupancy expected in 2020. View the story here.
