Nordson DAGE Launches New Jade FP X-Ray Inspection System
New Jade FP x-ray system.
Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, UK — Nordson DAGE, a division of Nordson Corporation, has launched its new and improved Jade FP X-ray Inspection System. The new technology reportedly provides superior X-ray image quality for all X-ray inspection applications in the value-oriented market segment. \par \The new system uses the latest technology flat panel detector to provide a cost-effective approach where high quality real time imaging is needed for production tasks. The open, transmissive x-ray tube together with the long-lifetime 1.3Mpixel CMOS flat panel detector makes this system provide the most cost effective choice in terms of price and performance for the high magnification and high resolution real-time imaging necessary for electronics inspection. The vertical system configuration, with the x-ray tube sitting below the isocentric "move and tilt" of the detector, all controlled through the simple, joystick-free, "point and click" operation of the company's Image Wizard Software provides the safe and collision-free inspection required for production applications. All these tasks can be simply and quickly automated without the need for programming skills.

System specifications: <0.95µm feature recognition at all kVs; up to 160kV at 3W tube power; automated tube stabilization; 1 year tube warranty; 1,200X geometric magnification (3,100X system magnification); easy, collision-free, high magnification and high resolution inspection — even at oblique angle views; joystick-free "point and click" operation; maximum board size: 29 x 22.8-in. (736 x 580mm) with reduced magnification; maximum inspection area: 20 x 17.5-in. (508 x 444mm); 65° oblique angle views for 360° around a point of interest; isocentric manipulator configuration keeps features in field of view; long lifetime CMOS digital detector with 1280 x 1024 pixels (1.3Mpixels); 10 fps full-frame "real time" image acquisition; real time image enhancements; 16-bit digital image processing; anti-vibration control; 20-in. TFT LCD operator display monitor; Nordson DAGE Image Wizard operating software.
