X-ray inspection for electrical goods

X-ray of electronic blood monitor

Electrical and electronic goods manufacturers must comply with the highest quality and safety standards at all times.

The industry demands exhaustive safety testing procedures and a detailed crisis plan ready for when the undesirable happens.

Fast and cost-effective inspection

X-ray inspection can quickly and accurately detect manufacturing faults in many electrical and electronic items including computer peripherals, medical devices or electrical assembly faults.

Our advanced technology can be configured to simultaneously inspect electrical devices and components for common quality concerns as well as foreign materials.

We may be able to inspect the product when it is in a case or carton format, depending on the quality issue or contaminant and the size / homogeneity of the product itself.

Electricals FAQs

What electrical goods can AIS inspect?

Our comprehensive range of x-ray systems is configurable to a variety of potential problems with electronic goods in both the consumer and industrial sector.

Previous projects have included quality inspection of computer peripherals, medical devices and electronic personal care items.

Please contact us for a fast and confidential assessment for your particular product.

What type and size of things can AIS detect?

As a general statement, x-ray can identify anything which has a reasonable absorption differential to the product in which it is surrounded. Typically, we detect foreign objects such as metal and glass fragments or higher density plastics and rubber compounds.

The size of object that we can identify is influenced by the density and size of the contaminant and the product, the position of the contaminant within the pack, and the type of packaging.

Detection of missing items and quality concerns is subject to similar factors.

Our highest resolution x-ray scanner, the Micron Scan, can detect a sieve wire of just 0.2mm in a single item or a piece of metal just 1.0mm sphere in a multi-pack or case. It can also detect glass fragments down to 1.0mm as well as stone, calcified bone and certain rubbers and plastics.

We will always give a clear and honest appraisal of what is achievable and be prepared to demonstrate that to you at any time.

How long does it take to inspect the product?

The inspection time is dependent on the target defect or contaminant, the product and pack size, if it can be inspected in a case or has to be stripped from the case, re-shrunk wrapped etc.

A pallet can be as quick as 5 minutes or as long as two hours.
