Y.XST225-VF - YXLON's X-ray system with a variable focal spot for the automotive, aviation and aerospace industries
YXLON's variable focus X-ray system offers a new focal spot technology that offers an extremely small focus with varying performance. Thus, Y.XST225-VF welds the empty spaces between microfocus tubes and traditional X-ray tubes in digital radiography and tomography, especially for the uses of X-rays in the automotive, aviation and aerospace industries.
Compared to traditional X-ray tubes, the focal spot of the new Y.XST225-VF system has greater symmetry and is twice as small: two essential factors that lead to higher spatial resolution and therefore optimal detail detection. On the other hand, the Y.XST225-VF system provides the performance associated with high-performance X-ray tubes, and thus far outperforms all microfocus tubes previously available on the market. The focal spot of the variable-focus X-ray tube can range from 250m to 290W to 800m to 1600 W.
The main parameters for optimal X-ray images generated using a flat detector are high spatial resolution and high signal-to-noise ratio. Both parameters depend on the size of the focal spot. By applying the new variable focus, the size of the focal spot can be optimally adjusted depending on the detection of detail and contrast. Using this method, details are optimally detected for almost any inspection task.
This type of variability is particularly benefiting from the automotive, aviation and aerospace industries. YXLON's industrial X-ray inspection systems and CT solutions are deployed here to control non-destructive materials such as welded joints, turbine blades and sophisticated molded parts, to name but a few examples. Precise inspection results obtained using highly contrasting images with many details are most necessary in these areas and are the prerequisite for high safety standards. These results also help to increase yield and quality in the production process.
In doing so, YXLON's new variable focus tube covers the full range of images: from large, big, big-viewed view-ups during brief inspection moments to detailed high-resolution images.
