Industry 4.0, Internet of Things, Big Data, and Smart Factories are not only trendy buzzwords, the concept of machine to machine communication and integration is becoming vital to the advancement of many manufacturing industries. Yxlon's Global Business Development Manager, Ragnar Vaga takes us through the implications of Industry 4.0 and integration of at-line X-ray inspection in the field of electronics assembly in his article featured in i4.0 Today.
The Zoological Museum in the Center for Natural History at the University of Hamburg is currently running a special exhibition about the tragic phenomenon of disappearing species in the animal kingdom. Disappearing Legacies: The World as a Forest examines the destruction of tropical habitats in South America and Southeast Asia and the consequent extinction of many different animals. The exhibition aims at making one think about the consequences of unsustainable farming practices and the concepts of Anthropocene and mass extinction.
Yxlon, together with technical partner Renault Sport, hosted a select group of local NDT users at the Circuit of The Americas raceway on October 19th, 2017 in Austin, TX. This opportunity included of tour of the Renault Sport Formula One garage and pit area, a meet and greet with the team, and the chance to find out more about how the partnership between Renault and Yxlon enhances the performance of the Formula One Team.
Discover the next generation of electronics inspection!
The next generation of electronics inspection has arrived. Say hello to the new Cheetah EVO and Cougar EVO. The two new product ranges are designed to be the best-in-class in their respective industries. Yxlon now has a custom built system for SMT, semiconductor, and laboratory applications. Each of the three products was perfected for the specific challenges and needs of the sector they represent.
This year, Yxlon is bringing more than just the latest in electronics inspection to Munich for productronica 2017. We will be bringing the next generation of X-ray and CT for a variety of applications. Are you ready for the evolution?
Yxlon’s participation in the Sharktoberfest Nightlife event on October 5th was great fun! Over 130 interested and interesting people visited our table or took the tour of the Project Lab to check out the FF20 CT System on loan until January 2018. This high resolution Computed Tomography (CT) System is currently helping California Academy of Sciences inspect specimens from their vast collection. CT imaging technology allows Cal Academy scientists to see the inner features of biological specimens using non-destructive evaluation methods.
At the end of July, YXLON International, a company of the Swiss tech holding COMET Group, lent one of their state-of-the-art computed tomography systems to the California Academy of Sciences. The FF20 CT system will be in use at the institute until January 31st, 2018.
Have you ever considered whether Computed Tomography or Digital X-ray Inspection is right for your business?
A new YXLON white paper, authored by Christian Gück, Head of YXLON Inspection Services, explores the issues that manufacturing operations must consider to make intelligent buy-equipment vs. buy-services decisions for digital radiography applications. “Are Third-Party Computed Tomography and Digital X-ray Inspection Services Right for Your Business?” offers insights that can help manufacturers make the best decision based on their scanning requirements and changing business circumstances.
X-raying in 3D may seem straight out of a futuristic sci-fi movie, but with the recent advancements of Computed Tomography (CT) it is a reality, and a fast, easy, and affordable option. The newly published “Computed Tomography (CT) for Industrial Applications Handbook” makes it simple to understand what the process of CT scanning entails and how you can use it for your industrial applications. Busy engineers who are either experienced or novices at imaging will find simple methods and approaches for applying CT scanning technology their industrial parts and sub-components.
