YXLON CT Precision

High-Resolution Cone-Beam Industrial CT System for Small/Medium Parts Inspection

“Discover the difference in accuracy” – the YXLON CT Precision is a high-resolution cone-beam CT (computed tomography) inspection system for small to medium-sized parts.

YXLON CT Precision x-ray inspection system for the aerospace industry
    • Precise industrial inspection & metrology applications

    • 3D inspections with premium detail recognition

    • Special features like laminography or helical CT for homogeneous images and increased detail visibility

    • Multiple parts tested in one inspection run to boost workflow

System Capabilities

Do you want to test small to medium-sized parts or even large parts with lower density? Does a broad range of applications for research, development, and quality assurance appeal to you? Choose CT Precision cone-beam for maximum detail recognition.

The rock solid granite manipulator makes CT Precision very precise, durable, warp-resistant, and temperature-independent. The microfocus X-ray tube offers unlimited lifespan thanks to a replaceable filament and targets.

The helical CT scan mode is another benefit that improves your testing procedures. By simultaneously rotating and moving the part it eliminates the need for image stitching and provides supreme accuracy in all areas of tall parts.

The new laminography mode precisely displays details which cannot be distinguished in 2D industrial X-ray images. This makes laminography a perfect complement to regular CT.

YXLON’s software toolbox automatically reduces ring artifacts in your CT scans right at the source. Plus, various state-of-the-art reconstruction algorithms and our detector calibration process help ensure consistent image quality.
