With the phoenix v|tome|x c, Inspection Technologies offers a compact 450 kV CT system specially designed for NDT and quality assurance labs in foundries or aerospace applications allowing both, combined semi-automated NDT and 3D metrology. The low maintenance and production oriented design features like easy loading tools, barcode reader etc., as well as the new one-button|CT automatization functionality make the system a very efficient tool for high throughput industrial quality assurance. It is the first industrial minifocus CT scanner with BHGE’s proprietary breakthrough scatter|correct technology option allowing users to gain a low scatter artifact CT quality level never before reached with conventional industrial flat panel cone beam CT. BHGE’s new scatter|correct technology automatically removes most scatter artifacts from the CT volume. This technological advancement provides image quality similar to that achieved with conventional fan beam scanning but at speeds up to 100 times faster. The quick|pick manipulator of the high speed configuration HS even allows fully automated CT evaluation of large batches, e.g. to scan up to 25 turbine blades without any operator action within approx. 2 hrs. The system offers industry leading sample size, flexibility and maximum penetration power for high absorbing samples at 450 kV.
Superior detector performance
The v|tome|x c comes standard with Inspection Technologies' exclusive 4 MP dynamic 41|200 next generation photodiode design industrial X-ray detector, providing 10x increased sensitivity (compared to state of the art 200µm pixelsize DXR detectors) for 2-3x cycle time increase without image quality impact to make inspections and measurements more efficient and productive.
As an premium option, you can also chose the 100µm / 16 MP dynamic 41|100 detector for 2x resolution increase without cycle time impact. Detection of 2x smaller defects without increase of geometric magnification allows imaging of large objects at higher resolution.
Scan faster than ever before
Advanced scatter|correct technology lets you scan up to 100 times faster compared to similar precise state of the art fan beam CT, without compromising image quality—even for high-scattering materials or composite samples. The dynamic 41 digital detector can double scan speed or resolution.
Fully automated inspections
With our one-button|CT functionality, the entire CT process can be fully automated—minimizing operator time and influence. In the high-speed (HS) configuration, the quick|pick manipulator allows for fully automated blade inspection.
Increased flexibility and productivity
Inspect different parts from different production lines for statistical production process control in one go, as quickly as possible. The v|tome|x c boasts a robust, small footprint for production control with a low cost of ownership.
Reproducible 3D Metrology
Besides inspection, CT scanning also provides precise 3D coordinate information even of hidden surfaces. The phoenix v|tome|x c delivers a measuring precision of 20+L/100 µm referring to VDI 2630 guideline.
Higher throughputs to improve efficiency
This production control-optimized system delivers the highest throughput batch CT possible. And with high efficiency auto|CT as well as automatic loading tools such as the quick-pick|manipulator, it is easier to use than ever.
