"Quality Control of 3D Printed Parts - Yxlon Technology Seminar at the Fraunhofer Institute in Dresden" by YXLON International GmbH

Around 50 participants participated in the technology seminar on quality control of additive-manufactured (3D printed) parts which was organized by Yxlon and the Fraunhofer Institut für Werkstoff- und Strahltechnik (IWS) in Dresden on May 15 and 16.

The seminar was fully booked. In the 14 presentations - held by the hosts and top-class speakers from the automotive and aerospace industries as well as from various scientific institutes - processes, materials and applications of additive manufacturing were discussed focusing on the quality assurance aspect of 3D-printed parts. Among the speakers were reputable companies like Siemens, Volkswagen, Trumpf and BAM. Particular attention was paid to the talk of Dr. Thomas Bielefeld (Premium Aerotec) on the difficulties in the process qualification of printed metal parts for aviation.

During the visit to the Additive Manufacturing Center Dresden (AMCD), the two YXLON X-ray and CT systems MU2000 and FF35 CT were demonstrated and typical AM defects were shown in the 3D printed parts. At the end of the seminar, four participants used the opportunity to inspect the parts which they had brought with them to Dresden.

The participants praised the good mixture of theory and practice as well as the opportunity to exchange experiences in a pleasant atmosphere. The positive feedback is incentive for Yxlon and Fraunhofer IWS to invite interested parties to the technology seminar in Dresden next year.

About YXLON International GmbH

YXLON International - innovative High-Tech-Company with long tradition

YXLON International develops, manufactures and markets digital radioscopy and computed tomography inspection systems for a wide range of industrial applications. With locations in Hamburg, Hattingen (Germany), Hudson and San Jose (USA), Yokohama, Beijing and Shanghai (China) and a tight net of agents in around 50 countries, Yxlon is represented with its systems and services worldwide.

Yxlon inspection systems are used for non-destructive testing and precise analysis of components and materials, among others, in the automotive, electronics and aircraft industry. Manually, semi- or fully automated, they provide best results in research and development as well as at or in the production line to assure highest quality and safety standards for industrial products and optimize manufacturing processes.

The product range expands from X-ray components such as tubes and detectors, complete shielded device for radioscopy and three-dimensional computed tomography up to customized solutions. With high-energy systems up to 600 keV for the inspection of e.g. large castings to high-resolution microfocus systems in the nanometer range for e.g. smallest electronics components such as microchips, a huge bandwidth of potential applications is covered by Yxlon inspection systems.

In addition, Yxlon offers comprehensive application and inspection services as well as trainings and consultancy at his application centers in Hamburg, Hattingen, Beijing, Hudson, and San Jose.
