System Capabilities

Next Generation Speed, Quality and Reliability

We believe in the power of evolution and what it can do for you. That’s why we’ve upgraded the YXLON Cheetah EVO system with advanced features that help you reach new heights in speed, image quality and reliability. Smartly designed to meet the demands of Industry 4.0, the Cheetah EVO empowers you to deliver efficient and reliable, zero fault production.

The Cheetah EVO system includes new advanced features to evolve right along with you. With a comprehensive suite of capabilities, the innovative Cheetah EVO enables you to keep up with the demands of next generation technologies.

Cheetah EVO has an optional ORYX 1616 detector with an expanded field of view of 50% larger than the standard version, allowing you to see more and do more. Combined with Cheetah’s improved automated processes, it requires fewer steps from you, helping to enhance your productivity.  The technologically advanced ORYX 1616 is designed with high sensitivity to deliver high quality imaging with less dose. An optional dose reduction kit is available to further reduce the dose rate on sensitive components by using filters and a collimator. Due to the detector’s enhanced radiation resistance, you will also benefit from its long product life.

The Cheetah EVO is equipped with the best laminography (micro3Dslice) on the market today. Its 3D visualization capabilities allow for quick and easy failure analysis.  Optimally suited for large and complex PCBs, Cheetah EVO also enables non-destructive inspection of large areas, providing a substantial cost and time saving over micro-sectioning.

When it comes to the heavy lifting, Cheetah EVO has got you covered with an optional high load capacity  of up to 20 kg allowing you to inspect several parts at the same time, as well as inspect electronic interconnects in fixed packages for the e-vehicles market.

Today’s smart factories rely on improved workflows to remain competitive.  Cheetah EVO delivers on that promise with integrated workflows on the FGUI interface.  Our FF CT Software is designed to start automatically for faster reconstruction and visualization.  It produces the most realistic, vivid visualization available today. That’s due to its unique ability to render 3D cinematic images with a preset selection of transfer functions (TF).

The visualization of laminographic volumes has the same high quality as CT volumes, without the added complexity. With laminographic volumes, you can achieve clear visual fault detection with less artifacts. The new FF CT Software enables optimized automated X-ray and CT industrial quality inspections, delivering even more accurate results. This innovation is the outcome of Yxlon’s commitment to the power of evolution.

SMT inspection:
grand performance for small devices

Surface-mounted devices are very small and often tightly fitted to a given area. That is why in order to get the most accurate and repeatable test results the inspection system must provide not only high performance and resolution but also be equipped with dynamic image enhancing filters.

  • SMT and PTH assemblies
  • PCBs
  • IGBTs

Benefits for SMT
  • Accurate, fast, and repeatable inspections – manually and automatically
  • High power, high resolution inspections of very small features
  • Easy to use, dynamic enhancing filters, e.g. eHDR
