Automated Screening of Complex Assemblies
Client wanted to screen a large number (>100,000) of sealed assemblies to non-destructively determine the chemical composition of a powder mixture enclosed within multiple metallic containers of steel and brass.
The accuracy had to be better than 0.25% and the screening had to be performed automatically.
- Develop a screening algorithm that used the concept of a master X-ray image to which all others will be compared and which would eliminate geometric deconvolution requirements.
- Establish a correlation between the chemical composition and X-ray attenuation.
- Develop methods to acquire highly consistent microfocus X-ray images.
- Implement the technology in less than four months.
