3DX-RAY takes the industry out of industrial x-ray inspection

3DX-RAY has announced CatSpect, a new software module, within the 3DX-RAY standardised software suite, that will make the analysis of items even easier for customers. A brand new icon-based interface enables quick and simple set up of analysis parameters and other functionality requirements - whether users are setting up highly automated, rapid, in-line scanning, batch inspection or one-off scans. The new software will be implemented across 3DX-RAY's entire range of industrial x-ray screening products.
X-ray screening is a key process for industrial manufacturers to ensure the quality and safety of their products. The new standardised software makes it far easier to deploy x-ray equipment at manufacturing plants, enabling customers to tailor functionalities and analysis tools themselves in software. Creating a new simplified interface was also critical for customers to ensure that operatives at varying levels could easily set up and modify analysis tools - from production line operatives or line control managers to R&D engineers.

For instance, in the example of 3DX-RAY's customers in the emission control industry, the software enables the easy set up of in-line analysis tools to check the success of the layering of precious metals on catalytic converters - ensuring a sufficient overlap and that there are no gaps. The software also allows line operators to deploy analysis over time, highlighting process trends or errors in the production process, allowing for corrections to be made. The data can also be fed back to R&D teams looking at new process techniques to ensure that analysis tools can be tailored at the same time.

Vince Deery, Sales Director at 3DX-RAY commented: We are always looking for new ways to help our customers perform critical inspection tasks. This means working not only on the technical capabilities of our x-ray devices, but also on ensuring that they work as efficiently as possible. We want our customers to be able to access results and analyse scans as quickly and easily as possible. CatSpect is a significant development to ensure that we continue to deliver this high level of service and will be rolled out across our product lines, forming the bedrock of 3DX-RAY's industrial inspection capabilities.
CatSpect is initially being rolled out alongside 3DX-RAY's catalytic converter inspection equipment, and will be incorporated into the company's other hardware lines over the next 12 months.
