An X-ray legend heads into the third dimension – “Y.MU2000 goes CT”

YXLON International GmbH198, Hamburg, Germany

Hamburg, 2013-09-29. With over 450 systems in use on the market, Y.MU2000 is the most ‘tried-and-true’ and most popular universal radioscopic inspection system worldwide. Recently brought to technical state-of-the-art status via a digital flat-panel detector, the system has now been enhanced by adding a CT option.

Whereas the highly accurate, purely CT systems Y.CT Precision and Y.CT Modular have been conceived more for specialists in the lab, and the Y.Multiplex X-ray system with integrated computed tomography is an ‘all-round talent’ suitable for both laboratory applications and production, the CT option for Y.MU2000-D is oriented primarily toward entry-level users starting out with computed tomography. “We deliberately kept the product simple. The user shouldn’t have to concern themself with parameters like projections, detector resolution, voxels and detailed technical correlations,” explains Product Manager Peter Kramm. “The application user can switch from radioscopy to computed tomography by pressing a button. A choice of three quality modes with preset parameters guarantees a failsafe application. Then, when it comes to analysis, with the VolumeGraphics analysis software you have all the possibilities this high-performance tool offers, for example measurement, a comparison of the actual situation versus the target situation, pore analysis and cross-sectional analyses in compliance with the German P 201 fact sheet.”

As a result, YXLON has elevated Y.MU2000-D into the next generation of radioscopic inspection systems and topped off its product portfolio at the same time. In the case of new systems, the CT function can be ordered as an option right from the start. Many existing systems in place can be geared up via the CT Upgrade. Precise statements regarding individual options and possibilities can be obtained from YXLON Service.
