X-Ray inspection system for industrial use

15 June 2007

The Axis-3D from 3DX-Ray Limited is a fully integrated stand-alone 3D and 2D x-ray inspection system for conveyor-belt based QC, SPC, NDT and general industrial applications.

The system incorporates a number of technological features, and provides an imaging capability also of great benefit. It can be used for either automatic or manual inspection and is available in both 3D (stereoscopic) and conventional 2D configurations. The 3D is able to measure volumes, 3D dimensions and alignments with an accuracy approaching that of 100 microns.

US Government’s Transport Security Administration (TSA) organisation tested the company’s 3D x-ray technology in a baggage scanning application and reported that real-time 3D images provide “significant” improvements when compared to 2D x-ray inspection systems. This is coupled with Axis’ ability to measure relative positions and boundaries accurately; and allows it to separate different components, even when you have close-fit plastic components inside a plastic or metal casing.

Axis-3D’s standard conveyor design allows integration with existing production-line facilities to provide an integrated in-line inspection system. Standard tunnel sizes are 40cm x 60cm and 80cm x 100cm. The system is based on a 'plug-in and use' concept. Its x-ray imaging technology produces 3D or 2D images in real-time as the objects under inspection move continuously through the system.

Axis software generates the image data that can be viewed directly by customers on high resolution 2D or 3D monitors and it incorporates a range of real-time image processing functions to aid recognition of faults or contaminants. The system can link directly into a company’s existing QC system via industry standard interfaces. Alternatively the 3DX-Ray can provide tailored software options for image display and processing including pass/fail decisions in fully automated in-line inspection systems.
