In classical x-ray imaging systems, both the x-ray tube and the detector are stationary or only move in a limited range of directions (left, right, up, down). Therefore, it is not easy, or even impossible, to check selected areas of larger structures, especially those with complex shapes.
Unlike classic X-ray imaging solutions, the robotic system provides almost absolute flexibility in the viewing angle. Therefore, robots allow you to "see" from a different perspective to better locate defects. In addition, robots further open up the possibility of using 3D imaging techniques such as computed tomography or tomosynthesis. These are methods commonly used in X-ray imaging, but with limited applicability for large complex shapes. The robots exceed this limit. Robotic systems can be used in quality control laboratories or built into production lines.
Advantages of robotic X-ray imaging systems:
• Full freedom in choosing the angle of X-ray imaging
• The most modern detectors sensitive to single photons, measuring their wavelength, allow for advanced material identification,
• High resolution 30 to 60 µm
• Online control by the operator
• Automatic, repeatable inspection of samples,
• Ease of programming tasks,
• Stand-alone laboratory systems with the possibility of adaptation,
• Possibility of integration with production lines,
• Possibility of extending to 3D imaging thanks to computed tomography and tomosynthesis,
• Ideal for inspection of details with complex shapes
• Surface scans
