Intuitive operation with Geminy
As the unique user interface for all workflows, Geminy makes x-ray and CT inspections as intuitive as possible. Diverse user roles help to streamline tasks: While the expert can tweak all parameters, less experienced operators will be guided through the workflow by wizards and presets.
Avoid collisions: SmartGuard
SmartGuard, a Geminy software wizard, helps to safely generate highly detailed images without the risk of collision when positioning the test part, especially when it comes to asymmetrical parts.
Keep track: part ID and part type
Track & trace capabilities provide the flexibility to add the ID/serial number of parts to the inspection data and reports manually or via a barcode scanner.
Simply share: Automated Data Transfer
Save time and effort in providing 2D and 3D inspection data such as images and reports by activating the Automated Data Transfer to a fileserver outside the system.
Stay informed: Healthmonitor
Operators can quickly analyze the system’s condition and performance with one look at the Healthmonitor.
The optimized image chain of the UX20 enables any operator to achieve reliable benchmark image quality.
ScanExtend: Enlarging the field of view
The UX20 is equipped with a strong suite of computed tomography features. With ScanExtend, the wizard guides users through the set-up of various scan-field extensions, while FlexCenter sets a virtual rotation axis to inspect difficult parts or regions of interest without the need to reposition the object.
ScatterFix 2.0: Optimized surface determination
ScatterFix 2.0 improves the quality of the CT data by reducing parasitic scattered radiation –for an optimized surface determination when inspecting large and massive components.
MesoFocus: Higher resolution, low maintenance
The MesoFocus technology combines the benefits of the mini-focus and the open micro-focus tubes. Three selectable focal spots provide optimum spatial resolution into the micro-focus range, while the robust design of a sealed tube makes the optional MesoFocus tube perfect for rough environments.
Which parts can be inspected with the UX20?
- Automotive and aerospace castings
- Welded structures
- Multi-material components
- Additive manufactured parts
