Hamburg, March 17.03.2009 -- YXLON International, a leading provider of problem-solving solutions in industrial X-ray inspection and computed tomography (CT) for inspecting materials on a nondestructive basis, is presenting Y.CT Vario, its new CT scanner, at the international CONTROL trade fair (Hall 1 Booth 1522) for quality assurance in Stuttgart, Germany.

The Y.CT Vario sets itself apart through an optimum combination of high resolution and output performance, a high level of material penetration and short image acquisition times. That combination makes Y.CT Vario the ideal solution for industrial X-ray applications in digital radiography and modern computed tomography. The enabling factors behind this are the perfect coordination of the new YXLON Y.XST225-VF variofocus X-ray system with an innovative polar manipulation concept and state-of-the-art flat-panel detector technology.

The Y.XST225-VF variofocus X-ray system features a focal spot that has a clearly greater symmetry and is less than half the size in comparison to the conventional X-ray tubes used until now. A very high local resolution and, consequently, optimum detail detectability are achieved as a result. With an output of up to 1600 W, the system offers distinctly greater output performance when compared with all of the microfocus tubes available on the market to date. As a sealed X-ray tube, the Y.XST225-VF is nearly maintenance-free.

The polar manipulation concept automatically adapts the precision of the horizontal image axis to the geometric magnification of the inspection item. The polar manipulatorfs granite base guarantees the necessary high stability and reproducibility of results required for the demanding standards in computed tomography.

The areas of application for the Y.CT Vario range from the geometric examination of outer and inner structures to the inspection of highly absorbent materials and on to detecting the tiniest flaws. While doing so, extremely accurate polar manipulation and the variable focal-spot size in this new variofocus technology provide for very high resolution and highly detailed, threedimensional reconstructions.

The Y.CT Vario system can handle inspection envelopes with heights up to 250 mm and diameters up to 180 mm. The latter can be enlarged via measurement circuit extension to 320 mm. The turntable carries inspection items weighing up to 10 kg. Y.CT Vario is thus particularly suited for the computed tomography of die-cast aluminum parts and injection-molded plastic parts. Computed tomography (CT) solutions from YXLON for inspecting materials on a non-destructive basis present the opportunity to fulfill the steadily increasing specifications for safety and quality to a large number of companies in the widest variety of industries.

About YXLON International GmbH
YXLON International GmbH is a leading provider of industrial X-ray inspection systems and computed tomography solutions for non-destructive material inspection (NDI). An innovative high-tech company, yet YXLON has years of tradition behind it. Since June 2007 YXLON has been a member company of COMET Holding AG (Switzerland). In the course of this acquisition, the COMET fine-focus division in Garbsen (near Hanover, Germany) became affiliated with the YXLON Group. As a result, YXLON is now able to cover the strong demand for X-ray and CT systems in the microfocus sector as utilized, for example, in the electronics industry.

With its headquarters in Hamburg (Germany), its branch offices and a network of representatives aligned worldwide, YXLON provides problem-solving solutions for any production process. The same applies for servicing and maintenance work too, whether in ship, pipe and vessel construction, in the automotive, aviation and aerospace industries, or during microfocus inspection in the electronics industry.

The YXLON spectrum of offers encompasses both microfocus and conventional X-ray and CT technologies. The portfolio ranges from portable systems designed for application in the field to standardized modular solutions, from complex, fully automated or customer-specific systems all the way to fine-focus, microfocal X-ray and CT systems.
