Cheetah EVO systems harness the combined power of several YXLON innovations – FeinFocus X-ray tube technology; high-power target technology; a finely calibrated, long-life flat-panel detector and a state-of-the-art manipulation system. The systems can generate images in extremely high resolution, easily overcoming the unique challenges of the laboratory application areas.

Cheetah EVO software can be tailored to individual requirements, with operators free to define their own specific analysis. This also includes customized algorithms. By using slicing technology, the nondestructive inspection of larger areas is possible and substantial cost savings will be achieved as samples are no longer destroyed by micro-sectioning. Even better, these slice-by-slice images can be analyzed automatically as easily and quickly as a 2D image showing voiding at interfaces perfectly clearly, the key to reliability.

In addition to imaging excellence, with Cheetah EVO you can look forward to simple, user-friendly controls and intuitive FGUI – Feinfocus Graphical User Interface – software, not to mention the myriad of benefits of comprehensive automation. One-click solutions make manual inspection effortless and live SMART filters ensure perfect images.

The Cheetah EVO is ideal for fine parts inspection in the automotive, electronics, aviation and material science industries where accurate results are paramount in order to comply with high safety and quality requirements. For more information, visit www.yxlon.com.
