The Dxbox-200 is a standard X-Ray cabinet that is compatible with all of X-RIS X-Ray Imaging Solutions’ portable and fixed monobloc X-ray generators (µGemX, GemX, µGXC, and GXC, up to 200 kV) and with Dereo detectors. 

The Dxbox-200 is user-friendly, easily movable and perfect for a quick “one-shot” job, as well as for regular work. By moving the test sample up and down within the cabinet, users can avail the benefit of geometrical magnification. 

A portable generator and detector used with Dxbox-200 can be removed at any time for work in the field, thereby increasing the inspection capability of users.

The Dxbox-320-C5 is a revolutionary system that has been developed with a 650-mm “radio-transparent” turntable, which enables the parts to be inspected in any direction, even with through the turntable. This avoids the need for unnecessary handling and repositioning of parts.

Applications

  • Welds and castings
  • Perfect for X-ray inspection of complex objects
  • Composite materials
  • High-speed regular work for aerospace quality control 

Dxbox-320-6: Fully Automatic 320-kV, 6-Axis Digital X-Ray Cabinet

The Dxbox-320-6 encompasses the Astrolab manipulator that enables users to X-ray all details and aspects of their inspection part from all directions, by making use of 6 axes.

The manipulator positions and sequences can be recorded by operators. When compared to manual handling methods, a huge amount of cost and time is saved since the sequences can be launched when needed. 

X-RIS systems have the potential to offer high levels of flexibility in configuration and provide various X-ray generators (of up to 450 kV), various tubes with different focal spots (as low as 5 µ), and DDA (with different active surfaces and resolutions). 

Applications

  • X-ray inspection of complex objects
  • Welds on tubes and plates
  • Items made of composite materials

Dereo RAD provides a straightforward and efficient solution to upgrade their existing X-ray inspection cabinet to digital — installation and the entire training can be carried out within two days and the X-ray generator and bespoke protocols of users can be combined into the Maestro software. 

The users benefit from the ease of use of Maestro’s image processing capabilities to master digital technology. The entire range of Dereo solution is compliant with BS7044, PR5250 and NADCAP standards. Solutions can be offered up to 600 kV. 

Applications

  • Welds on plates and pipes
  • Forensic investigations
  • Honeycomb structures, composite materials (inclusions and wrinkles)
  • Historical assets
  • Fe, Al, Inconel, other alloys and plastic casting defects such as shrinkage, inclusions and porosity 

Dereo RT: Upgrade from an Image Intensifier to a Flat Panel

The Dereo RT is independent and does not need any synchronization with earlier X-ray generators. This allows users to keep their existing shielded cabinet and CP X-ray generator (of up to 450 kV). 

It is possible to carry out programmable and manual regular inspections, which can be both customizable and configurable. Users can replace image intensifier, films and even their traditional DDA. 

Applications

  • Composite materials (wrinkles, wings, material inclusions, ailerons, etc.)
  • Weld inspection (ERW, SAW, seam, spot, laser welds, etc.)
  • Verification of locations of the electrical or mechanical components inside objects
  • Ti, Fe, Al, alloys and plastic casting defects like thermal cracks, porosities and inclusions
  • Inspection of ammunitions (defect detection in explosives or the shell, detection of chemical liquids)
