Specialised component X-ray test equipment

At Vigilant, our in-house test laboratory is equipped with the latest sophisticated equipment, which includes specialist state-of-the art component X-ray test equipment. 

With component counterfeiting on the increase, Vigilant's customers can take comfort in the knowledge that our facility is equipped to perform stringent inspections and tests on all electronic components to ensure they are genuine and of high integrity.

Vigilant’s  Component Testing  Laboratory  has specialised X-ray capabilities which helps us to provide industry-leading counterfeit detection capabilities for all sourced components.

This investment  means that all component test and verification activities are carried out to  stringent levels  ensuring that customers only receive components of the  highest quality. These services are available ‘standalone’, even for components not bought by Vigilant, or as part of one or more of our renowned total supply chain management services.

Advantages of our X-ray test Component Inspection System

The X-ray system is equipped with dual monitors to facilitate detailed component inspection. The two monitors consist of one X-Ray monitor, displaying a stored a ‘golden part’ X-ray image alongside a live X-ray image for instant comparison; together with  a second monitor providing the same comparison between optical images for immediate visual reference inspection. As part of a comprehensive, multi-staged testing process, the X-ray system allows operators to carry out thorough verification of all components– whether sourced by Vigilant or directly by you our customers – to identify  counterfeit components and remove them from your supply chain.

The X-ray system can accommodate tape sizes from 8mm to 44mm with adjustable pitch positioning and variable speed control, as well as component tube inspection via an integrated conveyor with variable width belt. Alongside this, the XY table within the system offers an inspection area of 16.5″ x 16.5″ (419mm x 419mm) which is ideal for JEDEC trays, thereby ensuring that every component in all packaging variants can be fully inspected.
