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.
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.
In an exclusive webinar, Peter Kramm, YXLON Senior Product Manager, discusses the revolutionary computed tomography technology found in the YXLON FF20 CT and FF35 CT systems, with a detailed segment on helical scans. The talk focuses on why and how state-of-the-art CT systems must deliver excellent image quality, detail visibility, and powerful measurement capabilities.
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 (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.
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.
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.
