Sinto America, a global turnkey industrial solutions provider, 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 wants our customers who are currently facing surface defects in their parts, at different stages of manufacturing, like 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.

Sightia Surface Evaluation

“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% quality check on every part produced affordably and implementation is simple with Sinto’s PSMX-II.”–Charlie 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 3 seconds ensuring 100% 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. WitSightia Surface Evaluation Technologyh the PSMX-II, you can collect residual stress data, after they have been peened, in only ten 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.

Overall, Sightia provides a highly accurate, easy to use and reliable surface evaluation process.

Sinto has long been recognized as the leader in the design and manufacture for all surface treatment, metal finishing and shot blasting applications. From standard to custom, simple or complex, or a single piece of equipment to a full system, that’s the Sinto difference. Your one stop solution. Learn more at
