X-RAY WorX GmbH from Garbsen, which is located close to Hanover/Germany, is the only supplier that concentrates on development and production of high resolution open microfocus Xray tubes and rod anodes without competing against producers of complete X-ray system in the field of non-destructive testing. X-RAY WorX microfocus X-ray tubes are employed in high resolution X-ray inspection, computed tomography and complex radiographic applications with rod anodes.

The company X-RAY WorX was launched in February 2010. The two founders and general managers, Holger Behnsen and Thorsten Fröba, are former employees of the well-known German company Feinfocus. Both possess long-year experience in development, production, sales and maintenance of microfocus X-ray systems. Thorsten Fröba has been working for many years in the development of microfocus X-ray tubes with Alfred Reinhold, who is the pioneer of microfocus X-ray technology and founder of the company Feinfocus. Holger Behnsen is a senior professional in sales and marketing and knows the market of microfocus X-ray testing for almost 10 years. They are supported by an experienced team of seven staff members who gathered expert knowledge in development, services and sales of microfocus X-ray systems.

The business of X-RAY WorX is the development and production of high resolution open microfocus X-ray tubes, rod anode tubes and special tubes for computed tomography. Users of this technology are found in several industries, especially those with highest demand for quality and security of products and processes. Among them are companies that assemble electronic devices, the semiconductor industry, the automotive industry, the aerospace industry and the research and development departments of various enterprises and institutes.

Additionally X-RAY WorX offers used microfocus X-ray systems and a wide range of services like trainings, maintenance, repair and the supply of spares for companies and institutes that operate high resolution X-ray systems.
