Metrology and inspection specialist YXLON (Hudson, Ohio) is introducing the FF20 CT and FF35 CT systems for computed tomography, coupled with the new 190 kV nanofocus tube. For 2D applications, this combination can reach ≤150 nm resolution even at high energies. New CT algorithms provide optimum spatial resolution, while caring for the highest precision and time efficiency on a large range of CT applications. With this new release, either system can now deliver the best inspection results during the non-destructive testing of materials and fulfill the most important prerequisites for demanding metrology applications. The new ScanExtend feature offers a horizontal field of view (FOV) extension ideally suited for larger inspection items and can enable smaller inspection items to be magnified to an even greater degree. In addition, new developments such as the virtual rotation axis and the HeliExtend feature (Helical CT) reportedly increase the breadth of application, the quality of inspections and the time efficiency for the user.
