A benchtop that fits all
The SKYSCAN 1273 sets a new standard for non-destructive testing (NDT) with benchtop instruments, providing a performance previously only achieved by floor standing systems. Samples with up to 500 mm length, 300 mm diameter, and a maximum weight of 20 kg can be inspected.
The combination of a higher-energy X-ray source running at higher power and a large format flat-panel detector with ultimate sensitivity and readout speed provides excellent image quality in just a few seconds.
SKYSCAN 1273 is complemented by 3D.SUITE. This comprehensive software suite covers GPU-accelerated reconstruction, 2D/ 3D morphological analysis, as well as surface and volume rendering visualization.
Energy Storage / Batteries
The SKYSCAN 1273’s large sample chamber accepts samples larger than what can be scanned with a single detector field-of-view. By offset scanning in sections and putting the large format flat-panel detector in offset positions, SKYSCAN 1273 scans large objects up to 250 mm in diameter and 250 mm in length. 3D.SUITE automatically and seamlessly stitches the oversized images together.
SKYSCAN 1273 comes equipped with a large-format 6 MP detector based on the latest flat-panel technology, achieving very high contrast in the accumulated images thanks to the large dynamic range. The fast frame rate in combination with an optimized scintillator enable excellent image quality in a stunningly short cycle of less than 15 seconds, which is ideal for time-resolved 3D X-ray microscopy.
The Bruker material testing stages are designed to perform compression experiments up to 4400 N and tensile experiments up to 440 N. All stages automatically communicate through the system’s rotation stage, without the need of any cable connections. Using the supplied software, scheduled scanning experiments can be set up.
Bruker's heating and cooling stages can reach temperatures of up to 80ºC, or 30ºC below ambient temperature. Just like the other stages, no extra connections are needed, and there is an automatic recognition of the stage. Using the heating & cooling stages, samples can be examined under non-ambient conditions, to evaluate the effect of temperature on the sample’s microstructure.
Additive manufacturing, also commonly called 3D printing, allows the creation of components with complex external and internal structure. Unlike classic techniques which require special molding or tooling, additive manufacturing allows the economical production of both one piece prototypes and large batch production parts. Once completed, confirmation of both the internal and exterior structure is important in ensuring that the component will perform as intended. XRM allows this inspection in a non-destructive manner, giving confidence that a component will meet or exceed specifications.
Designing and testing packaging assemblies is a critical task to ensure medicine can be delivered in a proper and safe way to the patient. XRM allows fast inspection for QC in a non-destructive way maintaining the sterile conditions, giving confidence in the production process and the resulting product’s performance.
XRM enables non-destructive characterization of a wide variety of geomaterials, from small mineral samples up to large drill cores at full-core size.
