MDXi – 3 Dimensional X-ray Quality Control
Article Type: Mini features From: Sensor Review, Volume 30, Issue 2
MDXi, from 3D X-ray is a fully integrated, transportable, turn-key, high-resolution X-ray quality control (QC), SPC, measurement and vision system that offers advanced 2D, 3D and tomographic, X-ray imaging capabilities and fault detection. Its novel and patented dual detector array means it costs around half the amount of a conventional system.
The MDXi can provide batch or 100 per cent, fully automated QC and SPC including sophisticated pass-fail decision making. Resolution can be as fine as 100 μm and it is sensitive enough to detect and distinguish between delicate intermeshing plastic components inside a plastic or metal casing. Innovative engineering makes it powerful enough to image an aluminum car engine block or see through 20 mm of solid steel.
Additionally, the system can measure and check internal tolerances, alignments, dimensions, coatings and even the presence of previously undetectable contaminants, such as soot or ash, in a catalytic converter.
The modular design and compact size of the system (1.4×1.0 m2 footprint) allows it to be either fixed or wheeled around a factory or QC facility to cope with any production hot-spots.
The MDXi is available with a wide range of dedicated software modules including 2D and 3D imaging, tomography, image analysis, fault detection, 3D measurement and QC. It can be run both stand alone or linked to an external QC or SPC system.
