                                • High Volume Inspection for Foundries Applications

                                  Quality inspection using YXLON industrial X-ray and CT inspection systems enable high unit volume inspection of typical casting flaws such as porosities, pores and blisters, thermal cracking, dimensional changes, and inclusions

                                  General

                                  Typical foundry casting flaws can occur in all casting techniques that involve materials such as iron, aluminum, magnesium or zinc. These flaws include porosities, the formation of pores and blisters, thermal cracking, dimensional changes, and inclusions.

                                  X-ray inspection offers the opportunity for:
                                  • Verification of blowholes and pores
                                  • Geometric measurement of inner structures
                                  • Wall thickness analysis

                                  Quality inspection using YXLON industrial X-ray inspection systems enables high unit volumes to be checked with rapidity and certainty using YXLON inspection software. Cast parts with a deviating casting structure can be sorted out of the production process at an early stage. The possibility also exists to draw conclusions regarding casting quality based on the types of flaws found, and then increase productivity by initiating appropriate corrective measures.

                                  YXLON industrial computed tomography (CT) is able to supply important supplementary information. For example, inner structures and remaining wall thicknesses can be precisely determined using CT, even in the case of complex components. Information like this is indispensable, particularly during prototype qualification.

                                  For components bearing a relevance to safety, ascertaining remaining wall thicknesses following the casting process, or the finishing phase for series products, is of major importance. This measurement provides information about the material’s stability and thermal conductivity. Once a tomogram of a component has been made with YXLON industrial CT inspection systems, information is then available for a variety of analyses.

YXLON offers a wide range of non-destructive testing solutions with portable X-ray systems, stationary X-ray systems as well as X-ray and CT inspection systems.

                                  Inspection of Pipe Segments with Longitudinal and Spiral Welds

                                  Although X-ray inspection competes with other technologies at pipe mills, (i.e. ultrasonics), radiography offers decisive advantages as an imaging technology.
                                  • Replacement for film when inspecting pipe ends
                                  • Rapid inspection of longitudinal and spiral welds
                                  • Post-inspection of ultrasonic indications

                                  In contrast to other technologies, difficult areas like pipe ends can also be inspected with confidence using X-ray. Moreover, for certain regions of the weld an inspection involving X-ray is frequently stipulated for safety reasons – for instance in the case of conjoined spiral-weld sections. Using film, image intensifiers, or digital flat-panel detectors – X-ray systems have been deployed successfully in quality assurance processes during pipe production for both spot-check welding samples and for full inspection.

                                  X-ray imaging technology has the distinct advantage of being able to document well the quality of weld connections during manufacturing – for example, through video recordings of the inspection in a moving image. Defects can be detected better and faster using our YXLON HDR-Inspect.

                                  We offer you a wide range of X-ray techniques at our application centers. We design solutions that replace X-ray films, provide radioscopy, and fully automatic defect recognition in X-ray images. We also offer computed tomography services ranging from micro-CT to CT using a linear accelerator to scan inspection items.

                                  The Right Solution for Your Individual Inspection Task

                                  With an YXLON industrial X-ray system you have the flexibility to test a wide range of different materials and parts with one system – for example testing and measuring casted, 3D-printed or multi-material parts.
