Inclined CT, the best inspection solution for 3-terminal power semiconductor devices

Posted by Keith Bryant on Jul 10, 2017 7:40:34 AM

An insulated-gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) is a three-terminal power semiconductor device primarily used as an electronic switch developed to combine high efficiency and fast switching. It switches electric power in many modern appliances: variable-frequency drives (VFDs), electric cars, trains, variable speed refrigerators, wind turbines, lamp ballasts, air-conditioners, rice cookers and even stereo systems with switching amplifiers.

600th Standard X-Ray Inspection System YXLON MU2000-D in Operation

Posted by Gina Naujokat on Jul 6, 2017 10:50:36 AM

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.

Christian Gueck is new head of YXLON Inspection Services

Posted by Gina Naujokat on Nov 28, 2016 6:22:21 AM

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.

How Computed Tomography Reveals the Internal Anatomy of Bat Skulls

Posted by Dirk Steiner on Nov 15, 2016 8:45:00 AM

Abigail Curtis, a postdoctoral fellow at the American Museum of Natural History in New York, demonstrates how computed tomography reveals unexpected scientific insights into bat physiology. X-ray with computed tomography is used to create digital reconstructions of modern and fossilized bat samples. These images enable research into how bat species have developed specialized anatomy for eating, communicating, and locating food. Most importantly, researchers are using non-destructive testing methods to share digital scans of bats to collaborate on a global scale.

Computed Tomography for Non-Destructive Testing in Natural History Museum Collections

Posted by Dirk Steiner on Nov 4, 2016 7:49:24 AM

In a recent CT Science Days event, Dr. Edward Stanley, PhD of herpetology, of the California Academy of Sciences, discussed how researchers are using computed tomography to study reptiles and amphibians in ways that preserve specimens and facilitate collaboration. The following is an excerpt of his talk from his educational video seminar, held in Hudson, Ohio, USA, in the spring of 2016. Our thanks to Dr. Stanley for his contributions. --Editor's Note

When you think of natural history museums, you probably think of things like dinosaurs rearing up improbably, or dioramas with cave men, or living forests and bio-domes. Or, maybe you think that it's a good place to employ out-of-work actors. There are all kinds of things like this in natural history museums around the world. Education is a massively important role that museums play, but, actually, behind the scenes they're legitimate research institutions, and they play an important role in academic research for a whole range of different fields.

How It's Made: A Video Introduction to Computed Tomography

Posted by Dirk Steiner on Nov 3, 2016 10:37:30 AM

Computed tomography (CT) goes light years beyond regular 2-D X-ray technology to deliver accurate three-dimensional images of scanned objects, including their voids and areas of differing density. Jason Robbins, YXLON Senior Product Manager, explains the science of CT in this (fun and nerdy!) educational video.
