The ML-2000™ Mixed Light system is totally
unique and can detect and extract fluorescence signals with intensity
levels less than 20-lux, from background daylight of up to 100,000-lux!
This disruptive technology introduces a
step-change in reducing processing times and improves standards and consistency
in quality audits and inspections for both MPI (Magnetic-Particle Inspection)
and (FPI) Fluorescent Penetrant Inspection techniques.
The ML-2000™ is equally applicable to the
inspection of forgings, castings, extrusions etc. which are too big or too
heavy to be moved into a darkened inspection room. Sentitect™ the system’s
software automatically all defects and keeps permanent record of results, for
100% quality audit and compliance purposes.
“Mixed Light” inspection is the term given to
an advanced technique developed by Inspection Tech, which uniquely enables the
detection of the very small levels of light emitted from fluorescent
penetrant dyes against a background light. This completely removes the need for
a separate darkroom or inspection cell and reduces manpower and floorspace. The
removal of these production bottlenecks significantly increases throughput
rates at inline inspection points and penetrant inspection can be performed at
any stage of manufacture, irrespective of background light conditions.
The ML-2000™ system also augments its unique
daylight inspection capability with our Sentitect™ world-beating software, it
can replace a human inspector and automatically identify regions of interest
for the operator and provides false-colour overlays on top of visual images of
the inspected part.
Why Size Matters
Accuracy and consistency of measurement are
the corner-stone of repeatable and reliable QA.
MPI and PDI under bright background light
Certified MPI test piece under high wattage halogen lamps,
the illumination at the test piece surface is 20,000 lux of background light.
In this simulated daylight condition the fluorescent signal is totally obliterated to the human eye. Existing equipment requires the tests & calibrations to be performed in a dark environment.
