X-ray Automotive

  • What is X-ray automotive?

The automotive sector is always on the lookout for high quality at a low cost, thereby avoiding loss. However, failures in manufacturing products can prove to be too costly. It will also ruin the manufacturer’s name. The lighter alloys with lesser engineering safety limitations have promoted the quality to the highest standards. This is where digital X-ray inspection system proves to be invaluable. They help manufacturers to engineer higher quality products with strict tolerances. By doing so, the manufacturers can easily examine the goods when the manufacture starts. An industrial X-ray machine is frequently used throughout the quality testing to obtain dimensional data on all interior and exterior aspects. That’s how it helps to compare the samples with the actual CAD type. Furthermore, industrial X-ray machine helps in assisting casting engineers through the process expansion stage by assessing the consequences of variations to the casting molds as well as methodologies.

 

  • What are the defects we inspect?

We inspect four major parts such as wheels, tires, casts parts, and electro-mechanical parts for defects.

 

  • Inspection of defects in tires 

Uni X-Ray’s Industrial X-ray systems can inspect defects in tires including composite rubber as well as rubber-compound fragments. During the final completion step, foreign objects such as air inclusions and reinforcement flaws are consistently determined using our Uni X-Ray systems. Moreover, information about the shape of every tire is retrieved for monitoring as well as production optimization. Our Uni X-Ray inspection systems are also used in research and development as well as analysis of the cause for examining the tires in a non-destructive way.

Our X-ray machine can be unswervingly implemented into the manufacturing line examining each radial truck, bus tire, as well as the tires of many passenger cars. This inspection method not only determines but also rules out irregularities in steel wires including spacing, position, damage, etc. Furthermore, the X-ray machine inspects:

  • Foreign objects
  • Air inclusions
  • Missing wires or defects in the belt strands
  • Distortions and shifts in the support plies

Uni X-Ray’s tire examination software automatically and digitally inspects tires for flaws.  It further unfolds thorough information about the basic composition of each part of the tire. Next, it delivers valuable data for process control statistically during the optimization step of its continuous production. Even the position of the tire drop on the wheel can be easily pictured in an oblique scan by performing an X-ray examination of the individual tire as well as wheel units.

 

  • Inspection of wheel defects  

With Uni X-Ray industrial X-ray inspection systems, the manufacture of alloy wheels is thoroughly monitored to guarantee quality and to assure whether it complies with safety regulations. This examination system rules out any flaws that may compromise the structural integrity of the wheel throughout its lifetime.

Other detection features include:

  • Detection of foreign bodies
  • Identification of clusters and blowholes 
  • Examination of micro-porosities towards microsections prevention
  • Prevention of surface-breaking defects on the finished wheel

The outcomes are documented, archived, and delivers direct input for enhancing the quality of the casting process. We provide customized solutions, depending on the defect pattern and application involved.

Still, our economic X-ray inspection system is the most widely used wheel inspection system in the world. Wheels are fed in either unfinished or in mixed-mode operation. The X-ray inspection system detects the wheel type mechanically and examines it as per the customer specifications.

 

  • Inspection of the defects in cast parts

Various distinctive casting defects can appear in every casting method that involve constituents like aluminum, iron, zinc, or magnesium. These casting flaws include dimensional changes, inclusions, thermal cracking, and porosities (the formation of blisters and pores).

Our X-ray inspection system can determine the following issues:

  • Geometric measurement of internal parts
  • Analysis of the wall thickness
  • Determination of pores and blowholes 

To ensure the safety of the relevant components in the automotive industry, it’s mandatory to ascertain the remaining wall thicknesses following the casting process, as well as the finishing phase for series products. This measurement delivers information about the sample material’s stability as well as thermal conductivity.

Our Uni X-Ray’s industrial X-ray inspection system allows high unit quantities to check for flaws quickly with assured details with our highly dynamic radiographic inspection software. By doing so, cast parts along with a deviated casting structure can be arranged in the production step at an earlier step itself. Hence, it is possible to derive inferences regarding the quality of casting from the various observed forms of defects. This step can ensure increased productivity by starting several suitable enhancement measures.

 

  • Inspection of defects in electromechanical parts 

Encapsulated or plastic molded components gains enormous importance due to the increasing demand for tiny, lighter, and more compact designs that are cost-effective. Wherever electronics and mechanics meet, electromechanical components can be used which involves a multitude of applications. 

Uni X-Ray industrial X-ray systems can examine and assess:

  • Joints
  • Contacts
  • Assembly
  • Packages
  • Insulators

It is also possible to examine semiconductor components as well as electronic devices (solder joints) without even disassembling the instrument.

 

  • How does it work?

A sample object is kept on a revolving stage between the X-ray source and a detector. It’s the detector that attains two-dimensional radiographic images of the sample product as it rotates. Once the sample has twisted through 360°, its two-dimensional X-ray images get restored into a three-dimensional volumetric map of the sample. Each section is a three-dimensional pixel that has a distinct density and location. This instrument not just acquires exterior surface data using a three-dimensional point cloud with the help of laser scanning. It also reveals information on the interior surfaces. Our X-ray inspection system can derive the information on what lies between these surfaces by mapping the density.

 

The X-ray tube remains the core element of an X-ray inspection system. There are various X-ray tube designs including open or closed types. However, an X-ray source comprises a cylinder where there will be a filament looking like a light bulb at one end, along with an increased voltage anode and cathode, a magnetic lens, as well as a tungsten-based metal target.

Once you apply current to the filament, it heats up and releases electrons. These electrons first get resisted by the cathode. Next, they will be attracted towards the anode due to the high-voltage field. This high-voltage field quickens the intensity of electrons up to 80 percent of the light speed in the direction of the tube end. Before these electrons leave, the electron beam is targeted on the sample object with an electromagnetic lens. These electrons hit the target where 99 percent of the energy is consumed while heating it. The remaining energy (lesser than one percent) emits X-rays that are produced as a cone-shaped beam from the target.

The more the applied voltage, the higher the energy will remain in the beam. Next, the increased power is shifted towards the sample object followed by the increase in the spot size. This leads to an increase in the production of X-ray power. However, there is one limitation of X-rays in industrial application. Metals, that have a high material density, can reduce the X-rays.
