The XRHRobotStar is an ultra-fast inspection system for all kinds of small to medium parts and can be equipped with up to 225kV. Successful reference systems for the inspection of aluminum casting parts exist in the automotive industry. The XRHRobotStar is the leading in-line inspection system on the market. By building a parallelized cluster solution consisting of several cabinets the throughput can be increased even more to scale with production extensions.
The basic functionality is that an (un)loading robot on the outside handles the incoming parts from the customer defined conveyor and distributes the inspected parts to the next processes, while on the inside a robot with a mounted C-Arm, including X-ray components, inspects the pre-programmed test-positions. The retrieved images are checked by the Xplus ADR for critical defector or other user defined criteria. In case of a mixed production the system can have different sequences for every part type. The parts will be recognized through a Data Matrix Code (DMC). The core of the system is the in-house developed image enhancement system Xplus that sets new industry standards.
- Xplus: Clear digital radiography images including live enhancement
- Part recognition through Data Matrix Codes (DMC) enable mixed inspection
- Fully Automated Defect Recognition (ADR) of flaws and custom criteria
- Designed for high volume in-line X-ray inspection
- Free choice of X-ray components (tube, detector etc.) up to 225kV
- Very short cycle time through high degree of parallel processes
The VisiConsult in-house developed ADR is compatible to common image sources on the market and fulfills international quality standards like ASTM, VDI, EN etc. and the demanding company standards of VW, BMW, Porsche etc. With dozens of installations worldwide all systems are designed for 24/7 operation without human interaction. An offline station is used to train the inspection sequences and review the results. This leads to a completely decoupled procedure for 100% system uptime.
Typical ADR applications are the detection of porosities, inclusions or cracks. It is possible to define certain ROIs and check defect metrics like defect density, defect distance, defect size, defects per area and many more. Thresholds can be defined dynamically. Training of the system does not require any programming skills and can be done through local supervisors. This drives down production costs and reduces the inspection bottleneck, while increasing the reliability and process safety. An integration to Industry 4.0 factory solution allows full traceability of the inspection process on a part level.
