CT Inspection System's Intuitive Interface Eases Use
Yxlon introduces the FF85 CT, a CT inspection system that’s designed for ease of use and flexibility. With a dual X-ray tube configuration and a high-precision granite manipulator providing as many as seven axes, the system inspects small and large parts and materials of varying densities. It runs on the Geminy software platform, an inspection system interface that offers intuitive smart-touch operation, remote monitoring, push notifications and multiple user profiles, so users without technical expertise can operate the system.
Equipped with an open microfocus tube ranging to 225 kV, a minifocus tube ranging to 450 kV and a choice of flat-panel detectors, the system is suited for a range of parts and materials including aluminum, steel, additively manufactured components, fiber composite materials and mechatronic modules.
The system’s CT algorithms ensure optimum image resolution with a greater measuring circle. The ScanExtend feature extends the horizontal measuring circle and is ideal for scanning larger components or maximizing magnification on smaller components. The scan is carried out through one continuous rotation of the test piece and is then reconstructed without artifacts. This feature saves time compared to “stitching” algorithms.
Additionally, features like virtual rotation axis and HeliExtend (Helical CT) increase applicability, quality and efficiency. HeliExtend Dual (helical CT with horizontal measuring circle extension) takes advantage of trajectories and maximizes the test space.
The irregularity of a machined surface is the result of the machining process, including the choice of tool; feed and speed of the tool; machine geometry; and environmental conditions. This irregularity consists of high and low spots machined into a surface by the tool bit or a grinding wheel.
The uses of working gage blocks are as varied as the number of gage blocks in a large set. The working blocks have an intermediate grade and are often used in the inspection or calibration lab, but they may also be found on the shop floor.
Just because dial indicators have been around since the early 1900s, don't expect them to fade away with the last century. This tool's long-term popularity is well earned.
