Automotive Component Inspection and Fault Detection
An automotive engine management system must be encased in Aluminium housing to provide protection form the harsh environment found in the engine compartment of a modern vehicle. Of course, once it has been packaged the delicate electronic components are safe from harm but cannot be inspected for potential defects. Here we are using a 100KV microfocus X Ray system to examine the electronic circuit board within its protective housing. Disassembly and visual examination would be totally impractical in this instance but Real Time X Ray is very quick (approximately 20 seconds per part). A digital image of each part is stored for later examination by a skilled electronics engineer.
Real Time X Ray also has many applications in checking for correct “fit up” of assembled components and sub assemblies.
We have many years experience in the testing of manufactured components for a very diverse range of defects.
