CT technology in different flavors – GIFA 2019

At the GIFA trade fair, which takes place from June 25 to 29 in Düsseldorf/Germany, everything revolves around computed tomography (CT) for a wide variety of testing and inspection tasks in the foundry industry – from precise laboratory systems for research and development to quality control at the production line and inline solutions during production.

It starts with the high-resolution industrial CT system YXLON FF35 CT for small and medium-sized specimen. FF35 CT is designed for extremely accurate inspection results and metrological applications in the laboratory environment. At the GIFA fair, the latest version will be presented: improved detector with increased active area, new live filters, additional trajectories for scanning variety, and the intuitive software platform Geminy. Equipped with touchscreen operation using graphical icons, health monitor, status light and push messages, as well as predefined user levels and remote functions, the FF35 CT delivers the best inspection results for users with little experience and experts alike. Visitors are invited to bring their own test specimen of up to 53 cm (20.8") in diameter and 80 cm (31.5") tall so they can analyze them live using the system.

The YXLON MU60 X-ray and CT inspection system is designed for a wide range of applications, especially in the foundry sector of the automotive and aerospace industries. Compliant with current standards, such as DICONDE, ASTM, MAI, and Nadcap, and equipped with ADR (automatic defect recognition), it is the perfect at-line inspection system for large castings. Live demonstrations of 2D radioscopy and 3D computed tomography will already impress GIFA visitors due to the size of the system and the range of possible test objects.

Particular emphasis will be on the brand new CT Inline solution. CT Inline is the next step towards Industry 4.0. The use of complete data for each individual object in the production line forms the basis for reliable product quality and continuous process optimization. Yxlon offers its customers CT Inline solutions that meet their individual inspection requirements and keeps pace with every production cycle in today’s foundries. Yxlon’s CT Inline will take manufacturing processes to the next level with its world-class detector technology, advanced mechanics as well as Microvista’s tried and tested inline analysis software. At the GIFA trade fair, the solution will be presented to the public for the first time.

Über die YXLON International GmbH

YXLON International, a company of the Swiss Comet Group, designs and produces radioscopic and CT inspection systems for the widest variety of applications and fields. Whether situated in the aviation & aerospace, automotive or electronics industry, our customers are among the largest producers, major enterprises that place their confidence in our quality worldwide.

The name Yxlon stands for assurance and quality for all types of cast parts, tires, electronic components, turbine blades, welded joints and a lot more. Our product portfolio includes X-ray systems for installation in radiological inspection envelopes, universal X-ray inspection systems on the basis of fully shielded devices, as well as solutions specific to a customer. Whether in manual, semi or fully automated operation, our inspection systems are ideal for deployment in research & development and can be integrated into any production process.

CT systems have been an integral part of our product portfolio since as far back as 2003. Computed tomography provides a three-dimensional insight into inspection items, thus enabling the analysis of inner structures, dimensional measurement tasks in metrology applications or actual-to-nominal comparisons to CAD data, to name only a few examples. Besides delivering a more precise inspection evaluation when compared with radiography, computed tomography also provides valuable information about the production process. Above and beyond such advantages, our microfocus systems permit highly detailed looks into the most intricate structures and tiniest components.

With our headquarters in Hamburg, sales and service locations in Yokohama, Hudson (Ohio), San Jose (California), Beijing, Shanghai, and Hattingen, as well as a network of representatives in over 50 countries, as YXLON we’re local for our customers all over the world.
