Yxlon becomes Comet Yxlon. At this year's Control show, the manufacturer of X-ray and CT inspection systems announced that it was changing its name to Comet Yxlon, effective September 8, 2022. The new brand underscores Yxlon's longstanding affiliation with Comet, a leading global innovative technology company focused on plasma and X-ray technology.
The fresh and modern design of the new Comet Yxlon brand reflects the company's innovation and enthusiasm for solving customer challenges.
"The Comet Yxlon brand represents decades of X-ray expertise and a passion for making new things possible, in line with the motto 'Led by experience.'" said Kevin Crofton, CEO of Comet Group and Interim President of Yxlon. "Therebranding strengthens our presence and reaffirms our importance with Comet Group."
Yxlon's entrepreneurial roots go back to the discovery of X-rays by W.C. Röntgen in 1895 and the manufacture of the first X-ray tube by C.H.F. Müller in 1896. Headquartered in Hamburg, YXLON International GmbH has been part of the listed Swiss parent company Comet Holding AG since 2007, which brings together a leading global group of innovative technology companies.
