As a new option, YXLON now also provides the ASTM E2973 Digital Reference Images for Aluminum and Magnesium Die Castings in its imaging software Image2500 and Image3500 of X-ray inspection systems including Y.MU2000-D and MU60 AE. The reference images, which so far have only been available as an image catalog for radiographic inspections with film, can now be deployed in digital radioscopy for defect evaluation of Aluminum and Magnesium alloys in die castings via a second review monitor.

Digital reference images ASTM E2422 (Aluminum), ASTM E2660 (Steel), ASTM E2699 (Titanium) and ASTM E2869 (Magnesium) have already been available with YXLON X-ray system since 2012, an important enhancement has now been realized with ASTM E2973 for Aluminum and Magnesium die castings in order to support flaw classifications for these parts and document inspection decisions according to industry specifications.

Although digital X-ray inspection is faster, more reliable, less expensive and more environmentally acceptable due to the elimination of chemicals compared with film, some industries still hesitate to embrace it. The digital ASTM reference images are an effective basis for film replacement, and users quickly appreciate the benefits of the easy and safe image storage as well as the simple digital data exchange.
