Enhanced Tire Quality Controls by Novel X-ray Digital Detectors

X-ray LDAs (Linear Detector Arrays) have been ideal choices for in-line and off-line NDT (Non-Destructive Testing) in tire industry. Novel digital x-ray detectors have recently been developed for enhanced tire quality controls. They are based on new intelligent digital platform, which is targeted to improve image quality, increase the maximum scanning speed and save the overall system cost by both electronics and software designs. Furthermore, it also provides remote firmware upgrade, diagnostics and other advanced features. This paper will present the working principles of a typical Industrial x-ray imaging system in tire industry. It will also describe new U shaped detector, and explain how to improve the production efficiency as well as detection abilities in x-ray tire inspection systems. To illustrate, examples of applications in x-ray tire inspection systems will also be presented for various types of tires.
