|Martinrea Honsel increases the inspection quality and certainty of cast parts through the use of highly dynamic radioscopy (HDR)
The mutual drafting of solutions toward quality optimization is an integral element of this successful cooperation. This is equally the case for inspecting a significant cast part. The X-ray cabinet from the Y.MU2000 line being used to do this is currently equipped with analog image analysis technology. During inspection of a certain region of the part, it quickly became clear that the physical limits of image intensifier technology had been reached. Thanks to the excellent work together on a partnership level, the problem with this crucial area was able to be resolved impressively within the course of a live demonstration using HDR technology from YXLON.
HDR highly dynamic radioscopy designates a procedure in which an irradiated inspection item seems as if made of glass in a low-noise live image due to a digital flat-panel detector and a special image processing filter. As a result of this glass-like depiction, the inspection item can be tested at a glance, without having to adjust the X-ray parameters for thick and thin regions. Flaws become visible right away, and are thus detected with certainty.
With the apparent advantages obtained thereby, such as
Martinrea Honsel Germany GmbH is going to continue to set standards in inspecting quality and continue to meet its customers high quality specifications in all respects.
