CT Inspection System

High Resolution Industrial CT System for Small or Large Parts Inspection

The COMET YXLON FF85 CT computed tomography system is designed to achieve the best 3D inspection results at very high resolution for a wide variety of materials and part sizes. Users can be found in aerospace, automotive, metal casting, R&D and additive manufacturing.

The applications that the FF85 CT is designed for include:

  • Material and structural analysis in research and development
  • First article inspection
  • Dimensional measurement
  • Small series inspection
  • Failure analysis
  • Assembly checks
  • Digitization

CT Inspection System

The FF85 CT with its dual-tube configuration, high energy and high resolution achieves extremely precise inspection results for a wide variety of material types and part sizes, such as:

  • Aluminum, steel, and super alloy components
  • Additively manufactured parts
  • Battery cells, modules, and systems
  • Fiber-reinforced composites
  • Plastic injection molded parts
  • Cultural assets, historical art, and archeological objects
  • Geological, paleontological and biological samples
  • Mechatronic modules

Small parts or large parts, the optional combination of two X-ray tubes with a spacious flat-panel detector (DDA – digital detector array) and a linear detector array (LDA) caters to the broadest application range. While the mini-focus tube, with its high energy of up to 600 kV, is the right solution for large and dense parts, the directional micro-focus tube (up to 300 kV) provides detailed insights into the inner structures of small components. Seamless switches between 2D radioscopy, 3D cone-beam, and fan-beam CT provide outstanding flexibility and the creation of individual inspection processes.

Comet Yxlon developed the CTScan 3 line detector array (LDA) for customers’ special requirements and challenging applications. With its unprecedented signal-to-noise ratio, its dynamic range, and a pixel pitch of 254 μm, it is the no-alternative solution for the crystal-clear inspection of large and/or dense components. It is designed for up to 600 kV operation reducing unwanted scatter radiation and providing low-noise electronics and highly efficient scintillators.

Another building block that contributes to the premium performance of FF85 CT is the rock-solid granite-based manipulator. It makes the system extremely precise and durable by providing warp resistance and temperature stability.

Graphic symbols and a wide range of automated functions, displayed on the intuitive user interface Geminy make operation easy – regardless of the operator’s skill level. At the same time, it offers a great number of features for flexibility regarding part sizes and inspection tasks, like CT trajectories such as HeliExtend (helical CT scan and reconstruction method), horizontal and vertical field-of-view extensions, a virtual rotation axis, and standard quick/quality scans. Image enhancement tools like ScatterFix 2.0, beam hardening reduction (BHC), or metal artifact reduction (MAR) reduce or eliminate scattered radiation or artifacts in the image.

A system health monitor gives you information on various parameters. Results are consolidated and displayed in a ‘traffic light’ representation. Additionally, you can access this health-state of the system and the progress of the CT (and reconstruction) from your office through our remote monitoring software.
