YXLON Y.Cheetah X-ray System Wins "Best Practice Award 2009" from Frost & Sullivan
Garbsen, Germany — YXLON International has received the "2009 Global Surface-Mount Technology (SMT) X-Ray Inspection Equipment Product Innovation Award" from Frost & Sullivan for the technological and product innovations that have been integrated into Y.Cheetah, the new X-ray system from YXLON.

The Frost & Sullivan TEAM Research Department designated YXLON as a "leading producer of key technologies in the field of non-destructive material testing based on X-rays and computed tomography." Alongside the 1-click technology, an emphasis was placed primarily on the innovative PowerDrive and Zoom+ technologies, exclusive to the Y.Cheetah system.

In the PowerDrive mode, the tube and detector axis travel synchronously in opposite directions at a constant magnification. If the distance between the detector and X-ray tube is decreased, image quality is increased dramatically at a constant image acquisition time. As a result, using PowerDrive technology the need to integrate many images in order to obtain very good image quality no longer exists. The Zoom+ technology maintains a constant distance between the tube and detector while magnification is varied. This eliminates the time-consuming adaptation of beam parameters when magnification is changed. The "1-Click Strategy" means that all important functions can be achieved with merely one mouse click. Very brief introductory training is thus sufficient to generate brilliant, highly detailed X-ray images.
