In X-ray inspection of connectors and harnesses, molded connectors, crimped and press-fit parts, soldered parts, wires, and shielded wires are inspected to detect defects such as breaks and shorts. Especially to detect overlapping metal parts such as terminals, internal wire breakage, missing crimping parts, solder defects. When you inspect a connector consisting of several pins, observation in different directions is needed so as not to overlap each other by rotating the sample stage.

The μRay8700 X-ray inspection system has a high voltage of 130kV and a high power of up to 40W X-ray source, enabling clear observation even in areas where metal overlaps. In addition, cross-sectional observation by CT scan provides a clear view of each cable in the crimping area, as well as of insufficient solder and internal bubbles.
