The tungsten filaments are fitted into the cathode by hand to a precision of one one-hundredth of a millimeter.
Tires are checked for quality assurance with the help of
X-rays. The YXLON Y.MTIS tire inspection system automatically detects any manufacturing flaws in the X-ray image – an important contribution to road safety.
Know-how and precision inform the development of the compact ebeam lamps. A foil just 7. 5 μm thin – about one-tenth the diameter of a human hair – must be welded onto the ebeam window.
When developing ever higher-performing vacuum capacitors, every detail matters – such as the electrode being tested here, in a plasma chamber also developed by COMET.
Users of the new YXLON CT systems get highly precise three-dimensional images with just a few clicks. Thanks to remote monitoring, they also know the system's status and the progress of the scan even when they are not nearby.
At the PCT research and development laboratory, not only are innovative products developed, but existing components are continuously tested for reliability. Only in this way can our market leadership be maintained and consolidated.
With so-called "done-in-one" equipment, all processing steps, from blank to finished part, can be performed by the same machine. In addition to higher machining accuracy and faster production lead times, this means COMET can reduce the costs of its parts manufacturing in Flamatt.
To further boost the computed-tomography capabilities at YXLON, two additional shielded x-ray vaults were built in Hamburg for testing large CT systems.
To achieve the best ultra-high vacuum in the x-ray tube, the cleaned parts are assembled in a climate-controlled environment.
