The professional digital X-ray all-round solution for non-destructive radiographic testing

The Amadeo NDT system is designed for non-destructive radiographic testing of tube and plate welds as well as for radiographic inspection of workpieces made of iron, aluminium, titanium, copper, plastic, etc. The system comprises all components and functions necessary for digital x-ray imaging: A combined high-frequency generator and X-ray tube, up to three X-ray detectors, customised positioning systems (e.g. tube manipulator), as well as the ORinspect software with optimised procedures and specialised tools for X-ray image processing. 

The compact design of the Amadeo NDT system allows installation in confined spaces. The X-ray generator is integrated in the X-ray table. The unit is easy to handle and provides flexibility for diverse inspection protocols. The Amadeo NDT’s efficient operating procedures and specialised hardware components reduce the number of working steps. 

Our custom-designed tube manipulator works together with a software tool that automatically stitches adjoining images. This combination significantly expedites tube weld inspection and effectively functions as a tube weld test robot.

Furthermore, customers can choose to implement specialized detectors with high sensitivity and reduced exposure times compared with conventional film techniques. This saves time, personnel and money. The ORinspect operating console controls all functions of the X-ray system; ranging from control of the X-ray generator to output of high-quality images. All necessary parameter adjustments are made at the central operating console. 

 

 

Excellent image quality

A selection of high-quality digital detectors – ranging from small, extremely high-resolution CCD sensors (<20LP/mm) to large, high-resolution detectors with small pixels (100 μm) for X-ray devices up to 1.5 MeV – guarantees excellent image quality and a high degree of detail.

User-friendly

The professional ORinspect software is designed specifically for non-destructive testing, and has a straightforward and modern graphical user interface. All X-ray parameters can be automatically transferred to the generator.  Adjoining images are automatically stitched.  X-ray images can be analysed at the monitor with aid of easy-to-use software tools.

Quick

An efficient cooling system allows the X-ray tube to be continuously operated at high power. The customised device control (e.g. of tube manipulators) automatically positions each test object. There is no need for manual adjustments.

The integrated ORinspekt software guarantees rapid data processing. Immediately after exposure, the system automatically repositions samples and is ready for the next radiographic examination. 

Customised and reliable

Amadeo NDT systems are customised to meet your individual needs in non-destructive testing. A wide selection of detectors, a specially designed sample manipulation system with both drive and support rollers, as well as customised hardware and software solutions guarantee consistent high quality over the long term, even under high usage.

Diverse applications

Objects made from a wide range of materials such as various metals, alloys and plastics, between 1-50 cm in length and weighing up to 50 kg, can be tested using Amadeo NDT. The X-ray table is able to bear a load of up to 50kg. The diameter of the work pieces depends on the material.

The heart of each Amadeo NDT system is the  ORinspect X-ray acquisition and control software developed by OR Technology. 

The software controls X-ray generators and X-ray units of various manufacturers, providing a smooth and structured workflow. A intuitive and user friendly GUI (graphical user interface), operated by touchscreen or mouse, completes the system.

The professional image processing can be adapted to individual user needs and offers outstanding image quality. It has been specially developed to enable material-specific optimisation, guaranteeing the highest quality of X-ray images.
