X-RAY WorX increased the maximum target power of its high resolution microfocus X-ray product line THE Plus to 80 watt. The transmission tubes cover a range of resolutions from 2 microns to 20 microns at up to 80 watt target power. The new version is optimized for inline computed tomography and laminographic applications with 100% quality testing in the production line.

Achieving the limits of resolution in nanofocus X-ray inspection requires finding the most appropriate combination of X-ray detector and X-ray source. A joint project to explore the capabilities of their components was initiated by ADVACAM s.r.o from Prague and X-RAY WorX GmbH from Garbsen. The combination of ADVACAM’s photon counting WidePIX detectors with the nanofocus tube XWT-190-TCNF yielded a performance even below the tube’s nominal resolution of 0.5 microns.

New nanofocus X-ray tubes from X-RAY WorX - Target cooling now available for highest resolution tubes with 225 kV and 240 kV
