With the UX20, the Comet subsidiary Yxlon is launching its first standard system from the UX family that is specially designed for production requirements.
UX20 is an impressive system both in and alongside the production line of foundries in the automotive and aerospace industries, which Yxlon serves in addition to the semiconductor and electronics market. The compact system is easy and intuitive to operate even without X-ray expertise, thanks to its self-explanatory menu navigation, material-specific defaults and automatic generation of test reports. The ability to switch seamlessly between radioscopy and computed tomography ensures a high degree of flexibility and reliable testing.
With the launch of the UX20, Yxlon is making itself fit for the future potential post-Corona and at the same time implementing a central element of its key strategy, with the focus on modular, standardized systems and digital services. This enables synergy effects and accelerates the development of new offers, as existing modules of the software and hardware platform can be used. The YXLON Geminy system software, which was awarded the German Innovation Award 2018, is the key to this as it combines all the functions required.
“With the modular system, we are meeting the needs of our customers to adapt quickly and efficiently to new challenges in a rapidly changing world,” says Thomas Wenzel, President X-Ray Systems. “At the same time, with the UX20 we are implementing our strategy of standardization: Once developed, functionalities are available for all systems on the Geminy software platform. This helps us to bring new solutions for our customers to the market faster and more efficiently, and to address new requirements more quickly. The feedback from our customers is very positive.”
Product videos featuring the innovations of the new system are available at www.yxlon.com/premiere. The launch of UX20 was accompanied by an extraordinary online campaign.
