750 kV microfocus X-ray source


Ultimate power with unprecedented accuracy

NDT inspection of high density parts

The 750 kV X-ray source with micron level spot size enables non-destructive inspection or measurement of large or dense objects such as engine castings, turbine blades, large composite parts with unprecedented resolution. It is the only 750 kV microfocus source on the market providing superior resolution and accuracy compared to traditional minifocus sources. 

Key benefits

  • Unique high speed rotating transmission target allows the source to be operated at maximum power with a fine spot size
  • Micro-focus spot size of 30 to 190 µm depending on the power, at least 10 times smaller than corresponding minifocus sources
  • Open-tube design with user-replaceable filaments provides virtually unlimited lifetime with a low maintenance cost
  • Typical material penetration values are 160mm for aluminum and 60mm for steel

Key features
