Latest generation object inspectors from NSI

North Star Imaging has announced a dedicated small-to-medium sized object inspector. The X25 is a compact digital x-ray and computed tomography (CT) system for use in electronics, medical scenarios and other industries.

The five-axis manipulator and vibration isolation system allows a scanning envelope of 228mm by 228mm. NSI states that these attributes make it an ideal choice for both x-ray and CT applications looking at 3D metrology and failure analysis.

The unit’s compact dimensions, of just 185.4x96.5x180.3cms allow it to fit through a standard interior door. The X25 also boasts an x-ray voltage range of 10kV to 160kV, with a system resolution of <0.5 μm and a geometric magnification of up to 4000x.

Combined with a scan travel of 228mm vertical, and 152mm horizontal, as well as z-axis source-to-detector movement of 1003mm, NSI claims that the unit is capable of submicron resolution imaging and ultra-high accuracy scanning.

The unit comes complete with NSI’s efX-DR and efX-CT software, featuring comprehensive data acquisition as well as processing and archival routine functions.

The X25 rounds out the X-View Computed Tomography systems range. This latest, smallest, unit joins other models such as the X50, X5000 and X8000 series scanners, all built to cater with larger objects.
