OMRON introduces VT-X850: The advanced 3D CT AXI solution to meet critical inspection needs

25 June 2024

OMRON has launched the VT-X850, a 3D computed tomography automatic ray inspection (3D CT AXI) solution engineered to meet critical inspection needs in the electric vehicle (EV) and electronics manufacturing sectors.

The VT-X850 addresses the complexities of inspecting large, intricate, and dense materials, joining innovative design with the latest technology. With the integration of a high-voltage X-ray tube and artificial intelligence (AI), the VT-X850 delivers on speed, accuracy, and ease of use. 

The new VT-X850 Xray solution enhances the inspection process of assembly modules, primarily focusing on the barrel fill of connectors, and power devices, with an emphasis on detecting voids or insufficient solder.

“Our focus was to create a solution that not only addresses the technical challenges but also empowers professionals of all expertise levels to conduct efficient and effective inspections,” said Kevin Youngs, Sales Manager EMEA – Inspection Systems Division at OMRON Europe. 

“The VT-X850 underlines OMRON’s commitment to driving innovation that combines technological sophistication with user accessibility.”

Key features of the VT-X850:

• Higher speed and higher repeatability: employing a high-voltage X-ray tube up to 160kV ensures stable, clear images in shorter time spans, even for intricate materials like heat sinks or aluminium die casts

• Handling of large and heavy modules: The design accommodates modules up to 335mm in height and 40kg in weight, ensuring broad applicability and versatility

• AI-powered inspection: AI binarisation ensures superior image processing, making the VT-X850 a user-friendly solution for individuals with varied technical expertise

• Automated solder and void detection: The innovative design eliminates dependency on manual settings, offering precise and efficient inspections without the need for specialised skills

Enhancing user experience
The VT-X850’s pull-out structure ensures ease of maintenance and the replacement of the X-ray tube using a hand lifter. The unit is specifically designed to meet the escalating demands of inspecting complex and hard materials, particularly in the burgeoning EV market.

“As the EV market continues to grow, the need for precise, efficient, and user-friendly inspection solutions becomes key,” added Kevin Youngs. 

“The VT-X850 is ideal for manufacturers aiming for impeccable quality control while navigating the complexities of varied materials and components.”
