YXLON International is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a 2019 Global Technology Award in the category of Inspection – X-ray for its YXLON FF70 CL highest resolution advanced 2D and 3D X-ray system. The award was presented to the company during a Tuesday, Nov. 12, 2019 ceremony that took place during productronica in Munich, Germany.
The new YXLON FF70 CL X-ray inspection system has been specifically developed to enable the very best automated analysis of the smallest and most demanding features within these samples. The result: impressively precise and reproducible test and inspection excellence. Semiconductor manufacturing requires automated, high-quality, reliable, fast and non-destructive inspection and analysis for optimum production as flaws can be found on the wafer, on a substrate, in a strip in the sub-assembly or in the final device.
The YXLON FF70 CL is distinguished by its large inspection area of 510 x 610mm and the extreme detail volume detectability of < 0,3 µm³, making it ideal for automatically and non-destructively analyzing solder bumps and filled vias in 3D ICs, flip chips and wafers.
The FF70 CL provides 2D (top-down) with a high-performance flat-panel and 3D (CL-Computed Laminography) automated analysis using a high-resolution Image Intensifier within a special manipulation assembly for its inclined rotations.
Premiering in 2005, the Global Technology Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.

YXLON International designs and produces radioscopic and CT inspection systems for a broad variety of industrial applications and fields. Whether in the aviation and aerospace, automotive, or electronics industry, our customers are among the largest manufacturers in the world – major enterprises that place their confidence in our outstanding quality. Our roots go back to the discovery of the X-rays by Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen in 1895 and the construction of the first X-ray tube by Carl Heinrich Florenz Müller in Hamburg in 1896.
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. 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/Germany,, sales and service locations in Yokohama/Japan, Hudson/US (Ohio), San Jose/US (California), Beijing and Shanghai in China, 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.
