With YXLON industrial X-ray inspection systems, production of alloy wheels is closely monitored to assure quality and to comply with safety regulations, ruling out any flaws that may compromise the structural integrity of the wheel over its lifetime.
- Recognition of blowholes and clusters
- Detection of foreign bodies
- Prevention of surface-breaking flaws on the finished wheel
- Check microporosities toward prevention of microsections
The results are documented and archived and provide direct input for improving the casting process production quality. Customized solutions
are available, depending upon the application and flaw pattern involved.
YXLON WI26 G
is the new flagship industrial X-ray inspection system for reliable inline alloy wheel X-ray inspections, along with our YXLON MU231
economic X-ray inspection system, which still is the most widely used wheel inspection system in the world. Wheels are fed in unfinished and in mixed-mode operation. The system identifies the wheel model automatically and inspects according to customer specification. Blowholes and foreign bodies are sorted out as individual flaws or as a cluster. In both systems, our inspection software is used for efficient and objective automatic inspections.
Our YXLON X-ray inspection system YXLON MU2000-D Wheel
is used when single wheels are inspected, for example the first sample of a new casting. A special wheel roller support helps manually capture the X-ray images. The location of the tire bead on the wheel can also be visualized in a tangential scan by conducting a manual X-ray of individual tire & wheel units.
