|Hamburg, August 27, 2012, YXLON International, the leading provider of solutions in industrial X-ray inspection and computed tomography (CT) for the non-destructive testing of materials, celebrates the sale of the 200th Y.MU231 X-ray inspection system for cast aluminum disc wheels.
YXLON is consolidating its position as the world market leader in this sector as a result of the sale. The delivery is going to a factory from the RONAL corporate group, a strategic YXLON partner. The executive management of both firms celebrated this event at RONAL headquarters in Härkingen, Switzerland.
The first version of the Y.MU231 family was developed in 1997. Within the system, wheels are examined via X-ray irradiation for the presence of irregularities during the casting process. Since then the system has been continuously improved and equipped with the newest technology on a regular basis. Outstanding availability and fully automatic Y.Al defect detection make Y.MU231 the bestselling wheel inspection system on the market.
