Vi3 Image Processing

From Better Data to Better Analysis to Better Parts

Digital X-ray images can produce more than 65,000 levels of gray. This presents a unique challenge in data analysis and interpretation. Traditional film imaging requires multiple pieces of film to be shot at different energies, film speeds and exposure times, as well as interpretation on a light box, to bring out all the details of a part under inspection. By comparison, our digital image captures more data, a full spectrum image, for improved manipulation and enhancement. The challenge of deciphering the image is more effectively met by VJT image processing and enhancement. Some of the unique modular filters that VJT has developed include:

Advanced Defect Enhancement (ADE) Filter Analyzes individual x-ray images on a pixel-by-pixel level with a proprietary algorithm to highlight anomalies and defects based upon the surrounding area.

Advanced Noise Reduction (ANR) Filter Removes noise introduced into an image through scatter, low photon counts, and similar occurrences without the removal of faint characteristics or defects within the image.

X-ray 2.0: The Future of X-ray Inspection is Now

Our unique suite of proprietary image processing filters are customizable and configurable to meet any application. From highlighting porosity within a casting, to the detection of a tungsten inclusion in a weld, or discovering a foreign particle in a jar of baby food, Vi3 filters improve product quality and enhance product safety.

Automated Defect Recognition (ADR) Software An industry standard for automated inspection, ADR enables the VJT system to analyze X-ray images, detect flaws and judge parts (either operator-assisted or fully-automated) for production with peace-of-mind
