Advances in X-ray Inspection for Electronics, Part 2: Which Tube?

Posted by Friedhelm Maur on Jun 9, 2016 6:00:00 AM

The Tube Is The Heart of the System

Within the realm of X-ray inspection for electronics there are a wide range of applications, so a single type of X-ray tube is not a "one-size-fits-all" solution. To address the demands of industries such as electronics manufacturing, better X-ray system manufacturers offer various non-destructive test solutions based on the power, kV and feature recognition capabilities electronics producers need. Having a choice of tubes and features allow the makers of chips, boards, circuits and compontents to obtain the images they need to resolve their production issues quickly and accurately.

Origin Story

The “open” transmission X-ray tube was a major step forward for x-ray inspection. This technology itself is  almost 55 years old, but was adopted for X-ray inspection for electronics in 1982 when the German company Feinfocus introduced the first open Microfocus tube. Most  modern high technology electronics systems use Open Tubes.
