PARIS, April 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
- Dentro LRX completes the range of nondestructive inspection tools on offer for industrial clients
A new vision of factory quality control
Dentro LRX uses microwave technology, instrumental to Microwave Vision's worldwide success, to reveal physical parameters - chemical composition, such as density, humidity level - or defects in materials - like inclusions, humidity pockets, knots in wood, or leather hide defects.
A contact-free system, this linear camera allows for both an internal and external product analysis in high resolution.
Dentro LRX makes it possible to have permanent quality control on a continuous production line, by immediately detecting defects in any sort of non-metallic material.
Microwave imagery, in combination with computerized data processing, enables this process to take place in real time. This technology is completely safe for the environment, and eliminates any health risk to operators, as opposed to scanners using X-rays or gamma rays.
The new, rugged Dentro LRX has been designed to be resistant to water, dust, vibrations, and strong variations in temperature: it is therefore suited to a wide variety of industrial environments. "Following initial sales in the field of mineral wool production, we are now approaching, either directly or through distribution partners who specialize in nondestructive inspection, other markets: the paper industry, composite materials, construction materials, wood, leather, and potentially the food industry for the inspection of foodstuffs," said Philippe Garreau, CEO of Microwave Vision.
