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.

Press Release: YXLON CT Systems – Unprecedented detail visibility ≤ 150 nm for precise results during inspection and metrology tasks

Posted by Gina Naujokat on Feb 15, 2016 10:26:01 AM

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.

YXLON invests in CT technology

Hamburg, March 31, 2015  ̶  YXLON International is kicking off a new era for its CT division with the inauguration of two new radiation-shielded bunkers for the development and production of computed tomography testing & inspection systems. Commencement is taking place within the framework of an international training course for application and sales at the corporate venue in Hamburg, Germany. This ultimate relocation of the CT division to Hamburg means that YXLON is now focusing its activities at the company s headquarters and, as a result, creating the basis for driving the development of CT testing & inspection systems while distinctly streamlining production processes. The location at Hattingen in North Rhine-Westfalia, Germany, which had been responsible for CT systems since 1999, can now fully concentrate on its function as an inspection service center.
