Typical casting flaws can occur in all casting techniques that involve materials such as iron, aluminum, magnesium, or zinc. These include porosities; the formation of pores and blisters, as well as thermal cracking, dimensional changes and inclusions.
- Verification of blowholes and pores
- Geometric measurement of inner structures
- Wall thickness analysis
YXLON industrial X-ray inspection systems enable high unit volumes to be checked for these flaws rapidly and with certainty by using our ‘high dynamic radioscopy’ inspection software. In this manner, 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 from the types of flaws found, thereby increasing productivity by initiating appropriate improvement measures.
MU2000-D is an excellent solution for casting inspection activities of large quantity parts production as well as for R&D. From large multi-national companies to small/medium-sized foundries and global car manufacturers, all trust their inspections to this robust system.
MU2000-D assists you in detection of casting flaws in items such as:
- Aluminum castings (engine blocks, cylinders, cylinder heads, pistons, knuckles)
- Turbine blades
- Wheels and tires
- Fiber-reinforced materials
- 3D-printed materials
The excellent image quality of the MU2000-D system is based on the interplay of the digital flat-panel detector array with our Y.HDR-Inspect software. The HDR (Highly Dynamic Radioscopy) technology provides exceptional detail detection, even though varying material thicknesses, and assists in visually determining the depth of casting flaws.
Thanks to the intuitive user interface, the MU2000-D is easy to operate, even for those without specialized knowledge. The same applies to the CT option. Our CT analysis station is equipped with industry leading software, VGStudio from Volume Graphics. You can count on detailed casting-flaw information thanks to 3D reconstruction of the CT scan. You can upgrade your MU2000 with the HDR and CT-Option and benefit from these extended functions.
MU2000-D is future-ready. Its interface generates data to be used in fields such as machine learning, Big Data, the Internet of Things, and machine-to-machine communication. In order to ensure acceptable inspection quality of your safety-critical components, the MU2000-D complies with current industry standards like ASTM and specific car manufacturers' requirements.
