YXLON International X-Ray GmbH

presents first fully automated inspection of turbine blades

Casting turbine blades is the art of waste-wax casting. Highest precision is a necessity for quality. YXLON CT systems provide information about inner structures of turbine blades. High-grade line detectors produce cross-sectional images of a certain layer or a volumetric depiction of the inspection item. 

The system's robot takes the turbine blades from a conveyor belt and places them on the CT manipulator. Cross-sectional CT images of the turbine blade are created. Laser bores located too close to each other as well as bores which are drilled too deep are automatically detected. When a penetration of the interior wall like that has occurred, the software measures the remaining wall thickness.
