Product note - ASTM E2973 - digital reference images for aluminum and magnesium die cast castings

Hamburg, (PresseBox) - As a new option, YXLON now also provides the ASTM E2973 Digital Reference Images for Aluminum and Magnesium Die Castings in its imaging software Image2500 and Image3500 of X-ray inspection systems including Y.MU2000-D and MU60 AE. The reference images, which so far have only been available as an image catalog for radiographic inspections with film, can now be deployed in digital radioscopy for defect evaluation of Aluminum and Magnesium alloys in die castings via a second review monitor.

Digital reference images ASTM E2422 (Aluminum), ASTM E2660 (Steel), ASTM E2699 (Titanium) and ASTM E2869 (Magnesium) have already been available with YXLON X-ray system since 2012, an important enhancement has now been realized with ASTM E2973 for Aluminum and Magnesium die castings in order to support flaw classifications for these parts and document inspection decisions according to industry specifications.

Although digital X-ray inspection is faster, more reliable, less expensive and more environmentally acceptable due to the elimination of chemicals compared with film, some industries still hesitate to embrace it. The digital ASTM reference images are an effective basis for film replacement, and users quickly appreciate the benefits of the easy and safe image storage as well as the simple digital data exchange.

CT systems have been an integral part of our product portfolio since as far back as 2003. Computed tomography provides a three-dimensional insight into inspection items, thus enabling the analysis of inner structures, dimensional measurement tasks in metrology applications or actual-to-nominal comparisons to CAD data, to name only a few examples. Besides delivering a more precise inspection evaluation when compared with radiography, computed tomography also provides valuable information about the production process. Above and beyond such advantages, our microfocus systems permit highly detailed looks into the most intricate structures and tiniest components.

With our headquarters in Hamburg, sales and service locations in Tokyo, Osaka, Hudson (Ohio), San Jose (California), Beijing, Shanghai, Hattingen and Heilbronn, as well as a network of representatives in over 50 countries, as YXLON we're local for our customers all over the world.
