September 22, 2011 — X-RAY WorX GmbH introduced electronically controlled venting valves for open X-ray tubes. This avoids the manual venting typically performed during X-ray tool maintenance. The new venting method considers the turbo pump’s rotation speed and automatically optimizes tube venting.
X-RAY Worx asserts that the automatic venting process protects the turbo pump from damage and reduces downtime for X-ray system maintenance.
The company is also introducing 240kV microfocus X-ray tubes, the XWT-series with 240kV acceleration voltage, for computed tomography (CT) systems and penetration of higher wall-thicknesses in two- and three-dimensional X-ray analysis.
The high voltage technology used for the new 240kV X-ray tubes has been certified by the original supplier. The acceleration voltage of 240kV is available for almost all types of microfocus X-ray tubes of the XWT-series offered by X-RAY WorX.
X-RAY WorX makes microfocus X-ray tubes for high-resolution X-ray analysis of electronics, aerospace and automotive products. X-RAY WorX supports users of microfocus X-ray systems with a broad range of services ranging from preventive maintenance and repair to the supply of spare parts and trainings. Go to www.x-ray-worx.com
