For racing enthusiasts, the tour of the Technical Centre was one of the day’s highlights. The opportunity to see how a Formula One car is designed and manufactured was an unforgettable experience, concluding with the compelling contribution of NDT Inspector Adrian Talbot, who shared with participants how development and manufacturing of high-performance race car components benefit from X-ray and CT inspection with the YXLON MU2000-D. The presentation offered an insight into how parts are inspected between race events and included original vehicle components and relevant 2D and 3D images.
Comments from guests were unanimous: “A very good event and a good range of presentations. The tour was excellent and very interesting”, said Richard Watson from AWE. “Superb venue, it was a real treat to see the Renault Sport Formula One Technical Centre. The good insights and light-hearted atmosphere made the day fantastic”, James Williams from Broadways Stampings and Dyson Diecasting Ltd. enthused. Adrian Talbot, NDT Inspector at Renault Sport Formula One Team summarized: „It was a most enjoyable day. All the presentations were extremely interesting and, collectively, they highlighted how significant additive manufacturing is becoming within engineering and design. From a Non-Destructive Testing and inspection point of view, I was in awe of the capabilities that are currently available. The world of Computer Tomography is clearly advancing at an incredible pace and we as a team are very proud to have Yxlon alongside us as we explore this interesting field of expertise. Thanks to all who visited Enstone for the event, and I hope to see you all in the future.”
YXLON International designs and produces radioscopic and CT inspection systems for the widest variety of applications and fields. Whether situated in the aviation & aerospace, automotive or electronics industry, our customers are among the largest producers, major enterprises that place their confidence in our quality worldwide.
The name YXLON stands for assurance and quality for all types of cast parts, tires, electronic components, turbine blades, welded joints and a lot more. Our product portfolio includes X-ray systems for installation in radiological inspection envelopes, universal X-ray inspection systems on the basis of fully shielded devices, as well as solutions specific to a customer. Whether in manual, semi or fully automated operation, our inspection systems are ideal for deployment in research & development and can be integrated into any production process.
CT systems have been an integral part of our product portfolio since as far back as 2003. Computed tomography provides a three-dimensional insight into inspection items, thus enabling the analysis of inner structures, dimensional measurement tasks in metrology applications or actual-to-nominal comparisons to CAD data, to name only a few examples. Besides delivering a more precise inspection evaluation when compared with radiography, computed tomography also provides valuable information about the production process. Above and beyond such advantages, our microfocus systems permit highly detailed looks into the most intricate structures and tiniest components.
With our headquarters in Hamburg, sales and service locations in Tokyo, Osaka, Hudson (Ohio), San Jose (California), Beijing, Shanghai, Hattingen and Heilbronn, as well as a network of representatives in over 50 countries, as YXLON we’re local for our customers all over the world.
Since 2007, YXLON International has been a member of the COMET Group.
