The YXLON MU231 inline wheel inspection X-ray system for alloy casting wheels, offers high-speed reliable inspection at the highest uptime. The automatic defect recognition guarantees maximum efficiency and well documented, objective quality assessment results.
  • More than 250 systems sold worldwide 
  • High uptime of 95% - 98% with minimum maintenance cost
  • Automatic inspection using AI software for a reliable objective inspection decision and low pseudo reject numbers
  • Full integration into the plant for efficient and comfortable processes

System Capabilities

With the MU231 you’ll achieve high uptime (more than 95%) with minimum maintenance cost. Unique shuttle-conveyor system and patented L-chain allows for short cycle times, e.g. 26 sec for a typical 6Jx16” wheel (MU231XL: 28 sec) with digital image intensifier. And automatic inspection with AI software (optional) gives you reliable and objective inspection decisions with a minimal pseudo reject rate.

Supports a wide range of wheel sizes:

  • 4J x 12‘‘ to 12J x 20‘‘ wheels (maximum diameter: 560 mm) of a maximum width of 350 mm and up to 25 kg. 
  • MU231 XL is available for wheels of up to 12J x 24’’(maximum diameter: 650 mm) of a maximum width 400 mm and up to 50 kg.

Individual imaging chain options are available: 

  • Digital detector array YXLON panel 460 for highest quality image and the most stable inspection results 
  • Economic analogue and digital imaging intensifiers (available in 9 and 12” diameter)

MU231 can be fully integrated into your plants processes. The casting station delivers the X-ray results straight to the casting for fast feedback on new batches. The statistics server provides data for continuous improvement of the production quality. And the review station allows you to maximize inspection efficiency.
