SMART SYSTEM INTEGRATION WITH AXT

Read about how the compact SMART EVO fits perfectly into Dyno Nobel's solution. Facility Manager Neil Hopkinson talks about how their productivity has increased when inspecting detonators for the mining industry at their site located in Toowoomba in Australia.

AXT Pty Ltd, the dedicated YXLON Copenhagen distributor in Australia, supplied a SMART EVO 160D radiographic system to Dyno Nobel Asia-Pacific, one of the top Australian manufacturers of detonators for the mining industry.

When asked about the new SMART EVO 160D system and why they chose it, Facility Manager Neil Hopkinson replied; “Two factors influenced our decision. The systems compact size and ability to fit into our existing inspection enclosure was essential. The power was also important, and in this case, we specifically needed a system which also can operate efficiently in a low kV range as most of our work is carried out at low kV”.

Neil elaborates; “Since installing the system, some additional features has proved to be handy, in particular, the user-friendly and intuitive nature of the system, and the ability to store program-settings make it ideal for multiple users to operate.”

Dyno Nobel’s operation includes nine trained operators, and with such a large number of operators, ease of use and the ability to recall stored protocols through the SMART EVO controller is a real operational benefit.
