NEOSCAN N80 is a desk-top, general purpose X-ray laboratory instrument for non-destructive 3-dimensional reconstruction of internal microstructure of the objects with spatial resolution in micron range. Typical applications include, but not limited, a medium-large size plastic molded or 3D printed parts, light metals (Al, Ti) and small parts in more dense metals (steel, …), ceramics, carbon- and glass-fiber composites, biological materials (tissue samples, bones, implants, …), electronics, glass, geological samples – plugs and drilled cores, pharmaceutical products and packaging, etc.

The NEOSCAN N80 based on newly developed key components, such as microfocus permanently sealed X-ray source and large-format X-ray detector, with specially designed precision electromechanical manipulator, new electronics with micro-stepping drives, and integrated software package for scanning, reconstruction and visualization of obtained results.

The X-ray source has a permanently sealed, maintenance-free construction with unique 2 micrometer spot size, which provides very high spatial resolution of the system. Possibility for target repositioning by operator ensure extremely long lifetime of the source. Using transmission type target allows placing objects very close to emission point and correspondingly reduce distance between the source and X-ray detector with corresponding reduction of scanning time and improvement in signal-to-noise ratio.

The X-ray detector contains large format cooled imaging sensor directly attached to 2:1 fiber-optic taper covered by radiation hardened fiber-optic plate coated by directly deposed scintillator. Such construction with dual fiber-optic design allows 4-fold increase of field of view and ensure strong resistance against radiation damages. Large field of view allows scanning big samples and collecting 4 times more X-ray radiation emitted by X-ray source with corresponding reduction of scanning time and improvement of image quality.

New electromechanical object manipulator in combination with drive electronics for micro-stepping control of all motors provides micron-level accuracy in object positioning and rotation during scanning. The system includes integrated micro-positioning stage on the top of object rotation assembly for exact sample positioning or for selection of scanning volume of interest inside big samples.

The NEOSCAN N80 system includes internal shielding against radiation leaks sufficient for using this instrument in standard laboratory environment according to all safety regulations without any additional requirements to installation areas. Due to significant weight, the system should be installed on strong, stable desk (not supplied with the system) in vibration-free room.

The system supplied with variety of stages for different object sizes including special stage for large objects with three independently adjusted jaws.

The system can be supplied with optional workstation in one of two standard configurations with all preinstalled software, or with software package on flash drive for installation on customer computer. The system requires one USB2 connection and one FireWire (6-ways) connection to control computer. Minimum computer configuration is following:

  • ⦁ Intel XEON Bronze or Intel Core i7 processor, 2GHz or faster,
  • ⦁ 32GB memory,
  • ⦁ 1TB hard drive or solid-state drive,
  • ⦁ NVIDIA Quadro P1000 or RTX4000 graphics card,
  • ⦁ IEEE1394 (FireWire) card with 6-pin connector,
  • ⦁ One available USB2 or USB3 port,
  • ⦁ QWERTY keyboard, mouse,
  • ⦁ 21 inch or larger HD monitor,
  • ⦁ Windows 10 Pro.

Supplied software includes integrated package for Scanning / Reconstruction / Visualization with friendly Microsoft-Office style user interface.

Optional Parts:

  • ⦁ In the case of using system in laboratories where possible vibrations can occur, the system can be equipped with optional pneumatic vibration isolators (should be ordered with the system, factory installed before system delivery). The set of vibration isolators contains four pneumatic feet installed to the corners of the system body. The feet with very low resonance frequency allow effective rejection of vibrations coming from the surface where the system will be installed.
