All-inclusive system for X-ray residual stress testing. Xstress Robot system with robot goniometer makes stress measurements by X-ray diffraction easy and flexible on complicated parts, large and small.
- Xstress Robot is an advanced X-ray stress analyzer, which is based on solid state linear sensor technique.
- The robot handles all functions such as tilting and rotation.
- Automatic mapping on complicated parts, such as turbine blade is possible.
- Fully customizable, accurate, and repeatable measurement routines.
- Accurate 6-axis industrial robot.
- Two symmetrically positioned MOS position sensitive detectors. Angular resolution: 0.03°–0.06°/pixel 2θ-angle.
- Instantly adjustable 2θ-angle.
- X-ray tube: Max. output 30 kV/10 mA/300 W; Cr, Cu, Co, Fe, V, Ti, Mn. Cr-tube provided as a standard. Tube can be replaced in less than ten minutes without special tools.
- Replaceable collimator, to provide 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 millimeter spot sizes. Special collimators available as an option.
- Three measurement distances as standard: 50, 75 and 100 mm. Other distances possible.
