About YXLON

YXLON International designs and produces radioscopic and CT inspection systems for a broad variety of industrial applications and fields. Whether in the aviation and aerospace, automotive, or electronics industry, our customers are among the largest manufacturers in the world – major enterprises that place their confidence in our outstanding quality. Our roots go back to the discovery of the X rays by Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen in 1895 and the construction of the first X-ray tube by C.H.F. Müller in Hamburg in 1896.

The Innovative Drive of a Young Enterprise Combined with more than 120 Years of Experience in X-ray

The name YXLON stands for quality assurance for all types of cast parts, tires, electrical and electronic components, turbine blades, welded joints, and a lot more. Our product portfolio includes X-ray systems for installation in radiological inspection envelopes, universal X-ray inspection systems on the basis of fully shielded devices, as well as solutions specific to individual customers. Whether in manual, semi, or fully automated operation, our inspection systems are ideal for deployment in research and development and can be integrated into any production process.

Computed tomography systems have been an integral part of our product portfolio since 2003. CT provides a three-dimensional insight into inspection items thus enabling the analysis of inner structures, dimensional measurement tasks in metrology applications, or actual-to-nominal comparisons to CAD data, to name a few. Besides delivering a more precise inspection evaluation (when compared with radiography), computed tomography also provides valuable information about the production process. Above and beyond such advantages, our microfocus systems permit highly detailed views into the most intricate structures and tiniest components.

With headquarters in Hamburg, we have sales and service locations in Tokyo, Osaka, Hudson (Ohio), San Jose (California), Beijing, Shanghai, Hattingen and Heilbronn, as well as a network of representatives in over 50 countries. At YXLON we are local for our customers all over the world.
