Compact computer tomography system


With the introduction of the CTScan 3, Yxlon has launched its own completely new line detector, replacing the Y.LineScan. As of now, the CT Compact computed tomography system will be equipped with the new line detector, the Yxlon CTScan 3, as a standard component. In the future, the Yxlon FF85 CT and CT modular systems will also benefit from its capabilities. Groundbreaking technological advancements and optimised production methods deliver unsurpassed image quality and significantly reduce susceptibility to noise. Besides the interference-resistant and low-noise electronics, the specially developed photodiodes, in particular, ensure an extremely uniform signal.

Where previously the crystals had to be manually split by specialists, production is now machine-supported with the new CTScan 3, resulting in an improvement in crystal uniformity by a factor of five. This leads to reduced ring artefacts and the high repeatability of the signal allows for optimal calibration. Due to the higher dynamic range and better signal stability, greater material thicknesses can be tested with the same X-ray energy. The solid housing is particularly resistant to temperature fluctuations, ensuring optimised cooling of the electronics. At the same time, it ensures very little scatter within the detector, resulting in much sharper images, cleaner edges and an improved detail detectability.

The CT Compact system is an efficient fan-beam CT system for medium-to-large castings designed for the automotive and aerospace industries. It is also suited to the non-destructive analysis of dense historical art and archaeological objects and large-scale geological samples. Multiple CT projections can be generated in a single test run, each with different parameters for the different object areas. This allows for a much faster testing process with consistent image quality. In addition, more than one component can be easily displayed in each test cycle using the multi-part testing function.
