Advances in X-ray Inspection for Electronics, Part 2: Which Tube?

Within the realm of X-ray inspection for electronics there are a wide range of applications, so a single type of X-ray tube is not a "one-size-fits-all" solution. To address the demands of industries such as electronics manufacturing, better X-ray system manufacturers offer various non-destructive test solutions based on the power, kV and feature recognition capabilities electronics producers need.

Advances in X-ray Inspection for Electronics, Part 1: Tubes

The “open” transmission X-ray tube was a major step forward for x-ray inspection. This technology itself is  almost 55 years old, but was adopted for X-ray inspection for electronics in 1982 when the German company Feinfocus introduced the first open Microfocus tube. Most  modern high technology electronics systems use Open Tubes.

3 Essential Features Your NDT System Needs To Get the Job Done

Too much of the wrong data from your non-destructive test (NDT) system can be overwhelming, and incomplete data can sabotage your test strategy and negatively impact production. Some Computed Tomography (CT) machines can examine samples using different imaging techniques, so how you can select the right CT system features to generate better image results for your specific application? Here, we examine different imaging features that work best for different application tasks.
