Project Description

A.C.R.E. 280/281


X-Ray shielded cabinet complies with Italian regulation (DPR 257/2001) and the strictest international regulations. The cabinet is completely self-contained, manufactured in steel with complete lead shielding. The cabinet can be transported by fork-lift, does not require any further shielding and can be located safely in any workplace area. The cabinet is designed with four pneumatic sliding doors (225 kV version only) to allow the transit of the pallets safely and in continuous cycle mode. Two large maintenance and inspection doors one at the rear and one at the front with lead/glass inspection window.

A.C.R.E. 280/281 is an X-ray unit that utilizes a pallet-based transportation system. Castings are placed into a rectangular pallet with appropriate fixtures in order to assure parts stability during transportation around the conveyor system. X-ray devices, both radiation source and detector are handled via a 5 axis C-arm manipulator, controlled by CNC, which allows all angles and perspectives to be achieved around the inspected parts. The standard conveyor belt can host up to six (6) pallets. The pallet quantity can be increased to meet specific customer requirements. This will require more length on the external part of the conveyor belt. The pallet flow and positioning is monitored by an ID system, each pallet has its own identification tag to allow the machine to run with different castings loaded randomly. Each pallet can host one or more parts, depending on parts and pallet sizes.

The standard Bosello pallet is:

640x560mm for A.C.R.E. 280
800x640mm for version A.C.R.E. 281
Max weight loadable per pallet 25/35 kg.
Pallet changing (idle time) 4 seconds.

The A.C.R.E. 280 can be equipped with different combinations of generators/tubes, different powers are available, typically equipped with a double focal spot metal-ceramic tube 0,15×0,15mm/0,4×0,4mm (d=0,4mm/d=1.0mm according to EN12543). Available as either 160kV or 225kV.
Typically equipped with  amorphous silicon digital Flat Panel Detector,  ADC 14/16 bits, resolution 200µ.


An operator panel with the main functions pushbuttons and joysticks for axes movement is located in an ergonomic air conditioned console. It is also contains a 19” VGA monitor for user interface, programming, image processing and diagnostic functions. For the radioscopic image a monochromatic high resolution 18” monitor is provided.
A Computer installed with BOSELLO BHT software controls all functions of the equipment, all axes movements and diagnostics. The inspection programs are made by a teach-in software which allows for the storage of several programs. X-Ray kV and mA variation is also automatically controlled by RS 232 serial line. The Personal Computer can be connected to the peripheral devices. Ethernet port is also available for connection with a Local Area Network (LAN). Automatic analysis software (VISUAL FARIS) is optionally available.
