Yxlon Debuts Compact Computer Tomography System


Reading time ( words)

Yxlon has upgraded its CT Compact computer tomography system with the new line detector YXLON CTScan 3. With the YXLON CTScan 3, Yxlon launches its own completely new line detector and replaces the predecessor Y.LineScan.

As of now, the CT Compact computer tomography system will be equipped with YXLON CTScan 3 as a standard component. In the future, the YXLON FF85 CT and CT Modular systems will also benefit from its capabilities.

Where previously, the crystals had to be manually split by specialists, production is now machine-supported with the new CTScan 3, resulting in an improvement in crystal uniformity by factor of five—leading to reduced ring artifacts. In addition, the high repeatability of the signal allows optimal calibration. Its higher dynamic range and better signal stability enable testing of greater material thicknesses with the same X-ray energy. The solid housing is particularly resistant to temperature fluctuations, ensuring optimized cooling of the electronics, as well as very little scatter within the detector, resulting in much sharper images, cleaner edges and an improved detail detectability.

The CT Compact system is suitable for medium to large castings designed for the automotive and aerospace industries.

About Yxlon

Yxlon International designs and produces radioscopic and CT inspection systems for the widest variety of applications and fields. Whether situated in the aviation & aerospace, automotive or electronics industry, our customers are among the largest producers, major enterprises that place their confidence in our quality worldwide.

The name YXLON stands for assurance and quality for all types of cast parts, tires, electronic components, turbine blades, welded joints and a lot more. Our product portfolio includes X-ray systems for installation in radiological inspection envelopes, universal X-ray inspection systems on the basis of fully shielded devices, as well as solutions specific to a customer. Whether in manual, semi or fully automated operation, our inspection systems are ideal for deployment in research & development and can be integrated into any production process.

CT systems have been an integral part of our product portfolio since as far back as 2003. Computed tomography provides a three-dimensional insight into inspection items, thus enabling the analysis of inner structures, dimensional measurement tasks in metrology applications or actual-to-nominal comparisons to CAD data, to name only a few examples. Besides delivering a more precise inspection evaluation when compared with radiography, computed tomography also provides valuable information about the production process. Above and beyond such advantages, our microfocus systems permit highly detailed looks into the most intricate structures and tiniest components.

With our headquarters in Hamburg, sales and service locations in Yokohama, Hudson (Ohio), San Jose (California), Beijing, Shanghai, Hattingen and Heilbronn, as well as a network of representatives in over 50 countries, as YXLON we’re local for our customers all over the world.

Since 2007, YXLON International has been a member of the COMET Group.
