  • Automatic loading and unloading of large parts for digital X-ray inspection is now available on the larger Computed Tomography systems manufactured by North Star Imaging (NSI). NSI’s robotiX: https://4nsi.com/innovations/robotix

    Larger parts such as automotive carburetors and airplane blades, can easily be loaded, scanned, and unloaded into the NSI X-ray system using a simple interface that allows users to create robotic control programs. These programs allow for reusable safe zone sub-routines that speed up the programming process to ensure that your NSI X-ray or CT system is up and running quickly when programming new parts for loading/unloading.

    Adding robotiX to your NSI system reduces cycle time, increases productivity and allows for more efficient use of your X-ray equipment.
