YXLON as Sponsor at WCNDT 2012
YXLON International, a leading provider of industrial X-ray inspection systems and computed tomography solutions for the non-destructive testing of materials, is supporting this year's WCNDT in Durban in April not only financially as a sponsor but through active involvement in designing the conference agenda and pre-conference workshop. This participation will include the presentation of several technical papers.
In a paper entitled "Digital Reference Image Catalogues and Image Viewing", Dr. Klaus Bavendiek is going to inform the specialist audience at the pre-conference workshop about the use and implementation of reference images, for example as described in the ASTM E2422 standard. During this forum Dr. Malte Kurfiss et al. will also present a paper on the topic of "High-Contrast Sensitivity Radiography with DDAs - How to surpass film quality?", one of the core competencies at YXLON in its endeavors to modernize X-raying while not only saving inspection time in the process but increase image quality as well.
At the main conference YXLON is represented with three more papers. In "New Measurement Methods of Focal-Spot Size and Shape of X-Ray Tubes in Digital Radiological Applications in Comparison to Current Standards", Dr. Klaus Bavendiek et al. will present a paper on the many years of work regarding the subject of focal-spot measurement, work which has reached a successful conclusion. The findings thereof have resulted in a new standard for focal-spot measurement that is being introduced worldwide via ASTM and ISO.
The paper co-authored by Dr. Frank Herold entitled "Fast and Analytical Exact Reconstruction of Large CT Volumes" concerns itself with mathematically exact CT reconstructions. Using new procedures, large quantities of data can be processed in a shorter time while retaining a high level of quality. As co-author, Gerd Streckenbach is going to report on one of the most innovative technologies at YXLON, digital laminography using 600 kV. This new technology solves the problem of creating 3D data from very large planar objects.
YXLON anticipates an eager interest in the technologies being presented at the WCNDT 2012 in Durban and invites all customers, partners and interested parties to further discussions at the YXLON Booth 121, 123.
YXLON International GmbH
YXLON International GmbH, a leading supplier of industrial X-ray inspection systems and computed tomography (CT) solutions for the non-destructive testing of materials (NDT), is an innovative high-tech company with a wealth of tradition. YXLON has been a member company of COMET Holding AG (Switzerland) since 2007. The COMET Feinfocus business unit has been integrated into business at YXLON as a product line. By doing so YXLON is now able to cover the increasing demand for X-ray and computed tomography solutions in the microfocus sector, for example the way they are being used in the electronics industry.
With its headquarters in Hamburg (Germany), several subsidiaries and a tight network of agents aligned all over the world, YXLON supplies solutions for any production process, but also for service and maintenance applications, whether in shipbuilding, pipeline and vessel construction, the automotive industry, aerospace and aviation, or for microfocus inspection in the electronics industry.
The product portfolio includes microfocus as well as conventional X-ray and CT technologies. It ranges from portable systems constructed for on-site application in the field to standardized modular solutions, complex, fully automated as well as customer-specified solutions, all the way to Feinfocus microfocus X-ray and µCT systems.
