Maximum flexibility for quality assurance testing
Whether its massive motor blocks, larger steel parts, or complex e-mobility components – the Comet Yxlon UX50 CT system scans the most challenging items in record time. Fast switching between line and flat-panel detectors, intuitive operation with the user interface Geminy, and a comprehensive set of image processing tools make the UX50 ideal for an unlimited range of X-ray and CT applications in the industrial environment.
With its large inspection envelope, multiple field-of-view extensions, and a powerful 450 kV X-ray tube, the UX50 takes the inspection of complex, dense parts to the next level.

Mode of operation:
2D, 3D, 2D/3D
Wide application range: 450 kV and large inspection envelope
Choice of line and/or flat-panel detectors for maximum flexibility
CT techniques for extended field of view and image processing
Simple creation of inspection sequences with Geminy
Automated detector calibration and image sharpness measurements
For applications e.g., in automotive, metal casting, and additive manufacturing
One system, two detectors: line detector and/or flat-panel detector
The UX50 offers a variety of detector configurations to meet the individual inspection needs of manufacturers. While CTScan 3, a line detector array (LDA) designed and produced by Comet Yxlon, is highly efficient at high energies, the Y.Panel 4343N offers more versatility. The configuration with both detectors provides the best solution for each task, allowing for quick and easy switching between the image chains in one sequence.
Easy upgrades for a future-proof investment
Simply choose the image chain that meets your current tasks and budget. If your requirements change, single detector configurations can be upgraded on site. In addition, the Geminy user interface will provide regular updates including new features.

Determination of regions of interest (ROI) to be scanned with different line pitches with effect on image quality and speed
Image quality optimizations
ScatterFix 2.0, e.g. for optimized surface determination
Beam hardening correction (BHC) to correct unwanted gray-value gradients
Metal artifact reduction (MAR) to minimize interfering effects which occur at complex components consisting of plastics and metals.
ScatterFix 2.0: Optimized surface determination
ScatterFix 2.0 improves the quality of the CT data by reducing parasitic scattered radiation –for an optimized surface determination when inspecting large and massive components.
MesoFocus: Higher resolution, low maintenance
The MesoFocus technology combines the benefits of the mini-focus and the open micro-focus tubes. Three selectable focal spots provide optimum spatial resolution into the micro-focus range, while the robust design of a sealed tube makes the optional MesoFocus tube perfect for rough environments.
