Hamburg, August 24, 2012. YXLON International, the leading supplier of solutions for industrial X-ray inspection and computed tomography (CT), now supplies an improved X-ray detector (fig. 1) specifically designed for inline inspection during tire production. Following development at the YXLON headquarters in Hamburg, Germany, the detectors shall continue to be manufactured there.

Contrast resolution and detail detectability have been significantly increased. In an image quality indicator in compliance with ASTM F 1035 (fig. 2), even materials such as rayon in combination with steel are clearly detectable in an image (fig. 3). The improved image quality, and consequently an enhanced quality of inspection, is immediately visible, even in the case of a tire image captured at a low cycle time (fig. 4). Due to modern electronics, the new detector achieves speeds never attained before. For a typical truck tire, up to 75 m/min can be inspected as a result.

The new detector has been optimized further for demanding continuous operation in the tire industry. It reliably operates in difficult plant conditions e.g. at high temperatures, and features a robust Ethernet connection.

The predecessor’s successful modularity has been optimized so that the detector module in the new Y.UScan 3 can be exchanged on-site even faster and more easily.

YXLON International offers this detector in the new model Y.MTIS tire inspection systems and for upgrades of existing systems in place.
