Frequently Asked Questions

1. Is the Unicomp AX8200 easy to use?

Yes, the Unicomp AX8200 is easy to use and configure

2. How long does it take to program the Unicomp AX8200?

The initial power up, requires 10-15 mins to warm up the X-Ray tube. Subsequent power up takes approximately 5 mins. To get to the area of inspection, it will take a minute or two to configure/adjust the X-Ray machine.

3. What are the easiest components to inspect on the Unicomp AX8200?

The simplest components to inspect are: Solder pads for voids, large cracks in a component and component placement inside enclosed package.

4. What are the most difficult components to inspect on the Unicomp AX8200?

Fine line cracks are the most difficult to inspect as they are very hard to see or adjust.

5. Is there anything that the Unicomp AX8200 has not been able to inspect?

Hairline cracks.

6. What is the scan speed?

All cabinet x-ray systems are typically manually driven with joystick control. With Inspecting areas of concern you can set macros for example, put board in set location each time and the system will drive to it and do its calculations based on your macro. X-ray inspection requires variables such as voltage/current to be adjusted depending on what you are looking through for example stainless, plastic, ceramics etc all demand differing settings to ensure a good grey scale image.

8. Is the image detector a digital flat panel or analogue?

Any x-ray is a culmination of software, hardware, tube technology, panel technology, filters and etc. The bottom line is IQ from the system and the 8200 does give impressive imagery for its price point.

9. Is there the possibility to upgrade the table size?

No, the table size on the Unicomp is fairly large and should handle most PCB and other items.
