Mr. Eric Vogel is the head of electronic engineering and has been with Applus+ RTD since 1996. He started as an airplane technician and has always worked with X-ray and non-destructive testing.
Mr. Frans Sprenger is a service engineer who has been with Applus+ RTD for 39 years. He has always worked in the service department, ensuring that the systems are up and running and ready for field inspection.
Both Eric and Frans years ago started working with the Andrex CMA, the Y.SMART, and then moved on to the SMART EVO.
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”.
