YXLON International, a company of the Swiss tech holding Comet Group, has been awarded a prestigious Mexico Technology Award in the category of Metrology for its FF35 CT Metrology System. The award was presented to the company during a Wednesday, November 14, 2018 ceremony that took place during the SMTA Guadalajara Expo and Tech Forum.
The FF35 CT Metrology is a market-leading X-ray system that takes measurement to another level, providing precise non-destructive measurements of inner structures with increased complexity via an optimized imaging chain. Especially in the automotive and aerospace industries, construction and production of electromechanical and electronical components benefit from these capabilities ensuring flawless quality. Each YXLON FF35 CT Metrology system offers: temperature control and compensation, a stable focal spot due to water cooling, accurate sample positioning due to Heidenhain encoders, all of which gives the operator unprecedented levels of measurement accuracy and repeatability.
Joandre Galarza, YXLON's U.S. Sales Director, said, "We are so proud to receive the Mexico Technology Award. This is the third award that we have received for the FF35 CT Metrology since its introduction last year. This solidifies that the YXLON product philosophy of combining precise dimensional measuring with high versatility and exceptional intuitive workflows like the fully automated acceptance test is well accepted in the market."
The YXLON FF35 CT Metrology enables users to perform actual to nominal comparison of very small features and geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T), something almost unique in our industry. Additionally, the system is able to make unstitched images of large assemblies including tablets that can then be viewed at the sub-micron level.
The Mexico Technology Awards recognize the best new innovations in the electronics manufacturing industry in Mexico. The goal of the award program is to celebrate the companies and people that are achieving the highest standards and driving the industry forward.
YXLON International designs and produces radioscopic and CT inspection systems for a broad variety of industrial applications and fields. Whether in the aviation and aerospace, automotive, or electronics industry, our customers are among the largest manufacturers in the world – major enterprises that place their confidence in our outstanding quality. Our roots go back to the discovery of the X-rays by Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen in 1895 and the construction of the first X-ray tube by Carl Heinrich Florenz Müller in Hamburg in 1896.
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. 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/Germany,, sales and service locations in Yokohama/Japan, Hudson/US (Ohio), San Jose/US (California), Beijing and Shanghai in China, 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.
