The roof mounted X-ray inspection system XRHGantry from VisiConsult

Innovative quality control of aerospace composite parts through X-ray

Kongsberg Defence Systems, a premium aerospace supplier from Norway, just installed the high-end X-ray inspection system XRHGantry from VisiConsult to perform compliant quality control on composite parts for Lockheed Martin.

Kongsberg Defence Systems from Norway is a high-end manufacturer for aerospace materials like honeycomb structures and other composite technologies. As a main supplier for big names in the industry like Lockheed Martin, it is mandatory to carry out sophisticated quality control. To further enhance the X-ray inspection capacities Kongsberg invested into the high-end seven axis manipulation system XRHGantry from VisiConsult.

This Gantry system is specifically designed for big aerostructures like winglets, honeycombs and rudders or complex structures like welded pipes out of titanium. With dozens of installations worldwide the XRHGantry is the most advanced and flexible roof mounted X-ray inspection system in the aerospace sector. It allows manufacturers to transition from analog film to digital detectors to increase efficiency and save money.

A cornerstone in digital X-ray inspection are demanding quality standards like ASTM 2737, ASTM 2597, NADCAP, EN-17636, BSS7042 and many more. Therefore, VisiConsult developed a comprehensive automatic qualification toolbox that determines all parameters through the use of a DR Phantom: Spatial resolution, CNR, SNR and dead pixel map are evaluated through a single click.

As a supplier of customized solutions VisiConsult implemented many special features for Kongsberg Defence Systems. For example, the foldable inspection room is saving a lot of space in comparison to known X-ray protection bunkers. It also gives a never seen flexibility as the whole system can be moved at any time. The XRHGantry itself can be modified in terms of dimension and layout depending on the inspection task, while common inspection processes are simply automated through CNC controlled sequences.
