CT Metrology simply just in between – the Test

High-resolution CT of a 3D-printed plastic impeller by the YXLON FF35 CT Metrology system provides clear insights into the inner structures and accurate results. What about the capabilities of YXLON UX20 with the new MesoFocus tube?

450 kV MesoFocus CT Part 3

In this last blog, I like to show some results of a 3D printed part made of copper. Without being an expert in such manufacturing and testing applications, I can see how the quality check reveals more relevant information by higher resolution.

450 kV MesoFocus CT Part 2

In this post we focus on the focal spot and bring high resolution to the details. High resolution in CT gets achieved by a very small focal spot, a higher magnification, and a well-aligned system with a very accurate rotation axis. Coming back to the question of the right kV-class.

Induction Machines

The early determination of the quality of a motor using CT before further processing would save time, resources, material, and costs, an economic factor that should not be underestimated within the steadily increasing demand for electromobility.

Ceramics Study

Additive manufacturing (AM), also known as 3D printing, is the construction of a three-dimensional object from a CAD model or a digital 3D model. One of the most used AM methods for ceramics is Direct Ink Writing (DIW). Read about the challenges!

Talking about Flat-Panel Detector's Resolution

When we look for the optimal flat-panel detector, it’s not all about the highest possible resolution. Christian Jeuschede explains why we still stick to 139 µm respectively 150 µm pixel pitch instead of 100 µm and what to have in mind when chosing the best fit for your applications.

Service Matters

Kathy Scott, Service Sales Director at Yxlon/Comet Technologies USA knows that service matters. With her 29 years of experience, she knows service and support should rate nearly as high in the decision to purchase a non-destructive testing (NDT) inspection system as the system itself.

Batteries - The New Challenges in Quality Control

Lithium-ion batteries (LIB) have become an indispensable part of modern life. The intensive testing of rechargeable batteries is not only important for ensuring their quality and function but even more for safety aspects.

The Role of Uncertainty of Measurement in CT

In a CT system, X-ray photons emitted from an X-ray tube will travel through the object and hit a detector. The detector senses the dose at each pixel of the detector area. This creates digital images while the object is rotated. The reconstruction software calculates virtual slices based on the dose at each location from different angles. The result is called a tomogram. Each pixel in the tomogram represents a density of material, a voxel.

Exploring Accuracy and Uncertainty in Computed Tomography

There is a range of terminology for CT system accuracy and uncertainty that should be understood when evaluating 3D scanning systems, this blog post illustrates some of those terms, such as Precision and Accuracy, Tolerance, Uncertainty of Measurement, Resolution, Error, and Suitability.

A Look into The Hidden

Electromobility confronts the automotive industry with many new challenges. New components sometimes require new test methods to ensure functionality and safety. Research and development are running at full blast and partnerships find solutions that clearly push the current boundaries of what is possible. In a joint project, the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials and Yxlon International have succeeded for the first time in taking a look into the inside of cast rotors.
