X-ray and CT for the Automotive Industry

  • Yxlon for Tyres

    YXLON industrial X-ray and CT inspection systems are used for defect inspection for tires as well as composite rubber and rubber-compound parts. In final finishing, foreign objects, flaws in reinforcement, and air inclusions are reliably detected using YXLON systems. Additionally, data about the build of each tire is collected for monitoring and production optimization. YXLON CT inspection systems are used in R&D and root cause analysis for non-destructive tyre examination.

    Yxlon for Wheels

    With YXLON industrial X-ray inspection systems, production of alloy wheels is closely monitored to assure quality and to comply with safety regulations, ruling out any flaws that may compromise the structural integrity of the wheel over its lifetime.

    • Recognition of blowholes and clusters
    • Detection of foreign bodies
    • Prevention of surface-breaking flaws on the finished wheel
    • Check microporosities toward prevention of microsections

    Yxlon for Cast Parts

    Typical casting flaws can occur in all casting techniques that involve materials such as iron, aluminum, magnesium, or zinc. These include porosities; the formation of pores and blisters, as well as thermal cracking, dimensional changes and inclusions.

    • Detection of blowholes and pores
    • Geometric measurement of inner structures
    • Wall thickness analysis

    Yxlon for Electro-Mechanical Parts

    Plastic molded or encapsulated components are of increasing importance due to growing demand for smaller, lighter, and more compact designs that are cost efficient. Wherever mechanics and electronics meet, electromechanical components can be used in a multitude of applications.

    YXLON industrial X-ray and CT systems are used to inspect and to evaluate:

    • Contacts
    • Joints
    • Packages
    • Insulators
    • Assembly

    It is also possible to inspect semiconductor components and electronic devices (solder joints) without having to disassemble the device.
