May 2017: YXLON rejoices over the commissioning of their 600th MU2000-D X-ray inspection system. After its market launch in 1997, the universal radiographic system is still one of the most successful inspection systems worldwide thanks to its flexibility and robustness. Due to continuous developments it has remained state-of-the-art for 20 years now.
YXLON, May 8, 2017: This year’s trade-fair presentation from YXLON is going to revolve primarily around the topic of metrology using computed tomography. The main attraction: a new version of the CT systems YXLON FF20 CT and YXLON FF35 CT will be presented that is targeted to appeal to metrologists.
YXLON, November 28, 2016: Christian Gück took over the management of YXLON Inspection Services and will promote the expansion of the inspection services for customers worldwide. Especially dimensional metrology by means of computed tomography poses considerable challenges both to X-ray systems and inspectors. Gück, who had already focused on metrology during his studies, had the opportunity to gain extended experience in the field of conventional measuring methods like tactile or optical technologies as well as CT Metrology during several years with a renowned German company. “During that time I specialized and focused on dimensional measuring by computed tomography because in the framework of the initiative Industry 4.0 and completely new production technologies it means a great future market. As the person responsible for CT inspection services on site, and during numerous customer training sessions I had the chance to learn about customer requirements and demands in very diverse industries”, Gück says.
YXLON International, worldwide leading producer of X-ray and CT systems for industrial applications and Renault Sport Formula One™ Team announce the successful start of their technical partnership. YXLON has provided its proven Y.MU2000-D X-ray system as a premium version which includes the Variofocus X-ray tube, High-Dynamic Radioscopy (HDR) as well as computed tomography (CT). Renault Sport Formula One™ Team can now conduct most of their inspection tasks for quality assurance and R&D with this universal X-ray inspection system, thus optimizing their testing processes.
‘Micro3Dslices’ gives operators one of the most accurate Laminography solutions in the market today, surpassing the current market benchmark. Bernhard Muerkens, VP Electronics said: “This exciting technology takes Laminography to a whole new level and gives clearly superior results much faster, really moving this technology into the semiconductor area. The new virtual rotation axis and unprecedented precision of the new manipulator assembly provide unrivalled inspection results, simplified operation and higher inspection throughput.”This solution is much more accurate than previous versions, due, in part, to the quality of design and engineering in the new manipulator assembly, allowing smaller and less dense features to be imaged than it was previously possible. This new technology produces vastly superior laminography results, when compared to other systems which revolve the detector or use inferior manipulators.
Following intensive test operation during production involving more than 250,000 inspected wheels, YXLON has officially launched the new WI26 G wheel inspection system with ADR and the new YXLON Panel 460 detector on the market in the course of its Wheel Symposium 2016. The design for the new WI26 G has been geared for speed, inspection decision-making at its best, and minimum maintenance requirements. “With this wheel inspection system we are able to double our production throughput,” is the enthusiastic commentary from Chris Puhlmann at Borbet Solingen about the concept’s success. At less than 20 seconds of inspection time per standard wheel, an annual throughput of 1.5 million inspected wheels is being applied as the basis. Which makes the WI26 G the fastest X-ray system in its class.
Hamburg, 15.02.2016. With the new release of the FF20 CT und FF35 CT systems for computed tomography and thanks to a brand-new 190 kV nanofocus tube, YXLON now achieves in the case of 2D applications an as yet unparalleled detail visibility ≤ 150 nm even at high energies. New CT algorithms provide optimum spacial resolution and care for highest precision and time efficiency at a large range of CT applications. With this new release, the systems consequently deliver the best inspection results during the non-destructive testing of materials and furthermore fulfill the most important prerequisites for demanding metrology applications.
Hamburg, 17.06.2015, YXLON International, worldwide leading producer of X-ray and CT systems for industrial applications, is proud to join the British outfit Lotus F1 Team as a technical partner and to contribute with its technology to the team’s achievements in a global sport where technology plays an essential role. To this effect, YXLON will provide its proven Y.MU2000-D X-ray system in a special configuration that includes Variofocus tube and computed tomography (CT). In the future, Lotus F1 Team intends to carry out most of their inspection tasks with this X-ray system, thus optimizing their inspection processes.
