Electron-X x-ray cabinets are designed and built to match customer's inspection requirements. Factors affecting cabinet design include sample type, size and weight.
Cabinets can be tailored to suit batch sizes and production capacity as well as to the individual defect analysis required. Other aspects such as available floor
area and maximum floor loading are taken into consideration.
All Electron-X cabinets are built with an integrated safety system, which includes monitored door interlocks and emergency stop buttons, audible pre-warning and fail safe warnings lamps.
Access doors can be sliding or hinged, manual or automatic and can incorporate a lead-glass viewing window to aid sample alignment and manipulation.
Electron-X x-ray systems can be used with traditional NDT techniques such as film radiography or with cutting-edge technology, which will provide a real-time image using
analogue or digital outputs. A wide range of x-ray sources can be incorporated into the cabinet to optimise performance and to match the customer's inspection requirements.
Standard format cabinets
Standard cabinets are of a box construction and contain the source and detector in either a horizontal or vertical orientation. A sample manipulator with the required travel and axes of
movement is placed between them.
Cabinets can also be designed around a specific sample type, size or application such as the system below; designed and built to handle and analyse rock core samples of
specific dimensions. The sample is placed in a loading arm, fed through the x-ray beam at the required feed and rotation rates into the unloading arm. This is a semi-portable
system that can be dismantled, move and reassembled in a day.
