Thin wall tube manufacturers have a few key requirements that must be met by the x-ray system for quality control:
- Throughput – the X-ray system cannot act as a bottleneck in the production cycle
- Floor space – The X-ray system must take up as little space as possible because space on the production floor is valuable
- Reliability – X-ray machine must maintain maximum up-time to continuously run production. Delivery schedules are very important to begin with and delays are not acceptable.
- Material handling – part handling varies – sometimes the tube must be rotated but in the case that it cannot and is coming off the coil, the X-ray components are cabinet must do so instead.
VJT offers customized solutions for weld inspection for thin wall tubing’s. Each component of the solution, whether it be the X-ray source, detector, tube or the whole cabinet can be manipulated to achieve the best image.
