Detalhes do Produto
At Proto we offer an extensive range of residual stress XRD products to ensure that the most suitable equipment is available for your measurement needs. Choose from our high-speed LXRD Laboratory Systems, flexible iXRD Portable Systems or our ultra-portable mXRD system.
Portable Residual Stress & Retained Austenite Measurement Systems
A proven performer in the field, laboratory and shop floor, the iXRD brings you an advanced system for your portable residual stress and retained austenite measurement needs. With our modular field stand approach, powerful software, easy to operate controls and our uniquely designed goniometers, we offer one of the most flexible and sophisticated instruments available in the world.
Take advantage of the convenience and safety of an ixrd Combo enclosure. Transform your portable unit into a fully functional laboratory system in minutes. It can be purchased as a basic enclosure or upgraded with integrated sample handling stages. It provides a safe and convenient working environment, and is available in our standard size or customizable to your application.
The iXRD Modular Mapping system has a phi rotation stage and a fully automated 300 x 200 mm travel XY stage. All mounted on a removable base, the mapping stage provides comprehensive residual stress mapping, or can be detached for large part accessibility. Additionally, the 200 mm Z-axis and MG40 goniometer can be removed together and mounted on magnetic feet for use in the field.
The iXRD GANTRY system has a variety of configurations. The overhead manual XY gantry enables easy positioning of the MGR40 goniometer over the steel table, or can be positioned outside the front of the enclosure for oversized parts. The 100 mm travel automated XYZ stage provides local mapping and positioning, or can be removed along with the goniometer and mounted on a tripod stand for field use
For your specialty application where small bore access is required, we have developed a unique line of miniature goniometers. By combining a smaller version of our PSSD detector and a 16 mm x-ray tube, we have made a product that eliminates the need to section or cut parts. At PROTO we have pushed the boundaries of conventional stress measurement by creating the world’s smallest residual stress measurement instruments.
LIGHTWEIGHT, PORTABLE AND FAST
Proto’s iXRD models are built around a compact and portable 300W self-contained iXRD control unit. With integrated high-voltage supply,
x-ray tube cooling, motor control, system electronics and a display panel for kV, mA and interlocks, it provides everything you need to run measurements. Additional safety features include external ports for interfacing to an enclosure or barrier, and beacon lights for ‘shutter’ and ‘x-ray on’.
PROTO’S STATE-OF-THE-ART X-RAY DETECTORS
PROTO’s proprietary position sensitive scintillation detectors (PSSD) provide unsurpassed speed, stability and a wide 2θ range. Unlike other x-ray detectors, they do not deteriorate with exposure to x-rays. Our systems are equipped with two detectors, for accurate sheer stress determination. The detectors can be quickly positioned between Omega or Modified Side Inclination geometry. Available in standard 2θ range, extended 2θ range, and in a miniature package for our specialty miniature goniometers.
At the core of every iXRD system is the powerful yet easy to use PROTO XRDWin 2.0 software. A comprehensive Windows®-based data collection and stress analysis package with features such as: linear and elliptical regression, Dolle-Hauk, and triaxial methods. Advanced peak fitting functions: parabolic, gaussian, pearson VII, cauchy, centroid, centered centroid, and mid-chord. Graphical display of peak intensity, breadth, FWHM, and sin2ψ plots provides informative easy to read results. Software utilities for XEC determination, principle stress, material removal, depth of penetration and retained austenite complete the package.
All of our iXRDs have features that make them easy and convenient to use. A high performance goniometer maintains ASTM E915 accuracy in a low maintenance design. The manual focus pointer enables accurate positioning of the goniometer in complex geometries. The automated focus pointer provides convenient focusing of large residual stress maps. A wide variety of x-ray beam apertures are available including: round 0.5, 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, 4.0 mm and rectangular 0.5x3, 1x3, 0.5x5, 1x5, 2x5 mm. High stress standards, zero stress powders & RA standards ensure accurate system results. Rapid positioning of the goniometer is accomplished with the easy-turn locking handles.
Portable Residual Stress Mapping (Patented) is available on all iXRD models, providing a comprehensive picture of the residual stress state of your part. As the originators of residual stress mapping, PROTO is a leader in the field. Automated Retained Austenite as per ASTM E915 enables characterization of %RA in steels as low as 2%. X-ray elastic constant determination (XEC) ensures automated residual stress measurement material calibration as per ASTM E1426. X-ray Tube Cartridges allows for fast x-ray tube changes, while maintaining accurate system alignment.
