X-Ray Inspection with X Line · 2D

The X Line · 2D allows high-speed inspection of assemblies populated on one side. The intelligent 2D technology is completely free from typical distortions. This allows consistent component testing at any point in the image field.

By combining X-ray inspection (AXI) with an AOI module, inspection tasks can also be carried out which are not possible using X-ray alone (AXOI). If required, the X Line 2D can be upgraded at any time to a 3D system for assemblies populated on both sides.


Programming Software – PILOT AXI

… a software for AXI test program generation. The inspection process wizard allows fast and intuitive programming. The offline programming concept reduces machine downtimes.

  • extensive AXI/AXOI component library
  • CAD data import (ODB++, GenCAD, Gerber data, insertion data)
  • integrated debugging statistics for fast optimization of inspection programs
  • full offline programming away from the production line
  • intelligent data management for storing test results
  • numerous test functions for X-ray and AOI inspection

Machine Control Software – PILOT Inspect

… a machine control software for unified control of GOEPEL electronic inspection systems. The touch screen operating concept for accessing apps provides intuitive handling as well as clear and structured presentation of the most important information.

  • operation and control of inspection systems via system PC as well as on mobile devices
  • short training time through integrated information texts and video tutorials
  • software based on various apps (for example inspection, fault statistics, calibration, machine state)
    • status display on PILOT Inspect start page
  • reduced machine downtimes through targeted fault diagnosis with status display and troubleshooting hints
  • interaction with sofware module Pilot Connect
  • communication with MES systems

  • Microfocus x-ray tube
  • Spot size: typ. 5µm – 10µm
  • Sealed type, maintenance free
  • Max. voltage: 130kV
  • Max. current: 300µA
