μB3500 is no longer available as we have stopped the production and sales this model in November 2021. Meanwhile, we support.
Benchtop size X-ray inspection system with CT Scanner function
With the combination of lateral irradiation and high-resolution digital imaging camera, µB3500 can realize various non destructive testing and offer clear image with no distortion to edge of the image. µB3500, with such compact Benchtop size, equipped with rotating stage and joystick for easy operation as well as interlock function, emergency stop function for safer operation, and will satisfy demanding needs for x-ray non destructive testing.
Simple operation allows for use of necessary functions by "anyone" "in no time"
The accompanying dedicated software not only allows for stage control and simple x-ray operation but also features a variety of image processing and measurement functions. It is a simple and easy observation and analysis at the micro/macro level and in various directions. And the reduction of judgment error and wrong inspection parts is enhanced by the following functions. And more, dedicated software for advanced image processing and analysis is standardly included.

Lateral irradiation allows for simple fixation of work
Also, X axis (left and right), Y axis (front and back), Z axis (up and down) and rotary axis (turning) are included to support easy observation.
A round work can be easily observed by placing it on the stage and turning it 360 degrees.The stage can be moved to the left/right, front/back, and up/down, allowing for easy operation.
A work that cannot be placed on its side can be easily observed just by placing it on the stage. Changing the stage platform allows for inspection of several works in a row.
As the top panel door opens,a long or heavy work (10 kg)* can easily be loaded on the stage.
* Equipment that supports 10-kg work is optional.
Operability is further enhanced by operating the stage with the joystick while looking inside through the big window.
Easy and secure
Functions that require no experience and function that are secure and safe
Secure Automatic aging function
No need for maintenance
Date and time of initial use is recorded. This function enables automatic selection of the aging time based on the hours passed from this date on, allowing for optimal aging.
Secure Latest ACC function
Just click for a new work
The automatic contrast control (ACC) function allows for the optimization of contrast in images. Anyone can easily obtain fine, transparent images.
SecureSimple shooting with the previous conditions
Calling up the shooting condition file for previous images allows pictures to be taken with the same conditions. Nobody will make mistakes when setting conditions.
Safe Interlock function
The X-ray stops the moment the door opens.
Safe Auto-OFF function
To prevent against forgetting to turn off the X-ray, the X-ray will automatically turn off after a preset time. You can set the time for up to 30 minutes.
Safe Emergency stop function
Just pushing this button during an emergency can stop the X-ray and stage.
Simple operation allows for use of necessary functions by "anyone" "in no time".
The accompanying dedicated software, "µRay®Vision", not only allows for stage control and simple X-ray operation but also features a variety of image processing and measurement functions.
Operability 1Simple observation and analysis
Easy observation and analysis at the micro/macro level and in various directions
With the reduced display function, you can easily make comparative observations.
By switching from the high-resolution display to the reduced display, you can perform observation / analysis of the sample by comparing it with previously saved images.
With a move and a click, details can easily be observed.
This function is helpful for when "you want to observe the details of a sample while maintaining high resolution".
Because the stage moves to the part that's clicked, no details will be missed.
By gradually moving the stage, the whole area can be observed without missing anything.
Operability 2Easy lot inspection
Reduction of judgment error and wrong inspection parts is enhanced by the following functions.
With the function for coloring at the designated brightness, defective parts can be discovered easily.
This function is for identifying the concentration value for parts with foreign materials or porosity based on the defective sample. This function can place color on the concentration for the designated range only.
Inspectors can easily make determinations as color is added to the range with the concentration value determined to be defective.
With the area measuring function, conformity/non-conformity can easily be determined based on the area's size.
This function is helpful when performing void ratio of BGA or when determining the difference in size for a preset shape or in similar items. As the measurement results are given in numeric values, making determinations is easy. The area, number, area of holes, and area ratio can all be measured.
CT unit: 2D/3D analysis software
Although the fluoroscopy equipment can provide only projected images, the CT unit can provide 3D images. By specifying given surface of the 3D image, the tomographic image of the surface is displayed.
