nikon metrology xray ct sourcesAll X-ray sources - In-house design and build

Nikon Metrology X-ray sources are at the heart of our technology and have been designed and manufactured in-house from 1987 to this day; offering over 25 years of knowledge. Being at the heart of the image, control over the X-ray source technology allows Nikon Metrology to quickly move with the market and develop complete and innovative solutions to the application demand.

All sources are open-tube giving a low cost of ownership and range from low (160) to medium (225) to high (450) kV, all with micron resolution.

Applicable for samples smaller than 10 mm, such as small rock cores or bone samples, the Transmission Target operates up to 180 kV to achieving a minimum spot size of 1 μm leading to high resolution CT.

With up to 225 kV and a minimum spot size of 3 μm, the 225 kV microfocus source is the core of Nikon’s XT H 225 range, devising flexibility to cope with a range of sample sizes and densities.

Nikon Metrology is the only company to produce an Industrial 225 kV microfocus rotating target. Using a rotating target, the electron beam falls on a moving instead of a fixed surface, which yields much more effective cooling. This offers the opportunity to measure objects faster, or denser objects with higher accuracy than using a conventional static 225 kV.

The 320 kV source is a unique microfocus source for samples too large or dense for 225 kV whilst still maintaining a small spot size. 

Ideal for rock cores and small castings the source is an option in the XT H 320 cabinet.

The unique 450 kV microfocus source gives industry leading performance for small high density or small to medium castings with unrivalled power and resolution.

Nikon’s 450 kV high-brilliance source delivers 450 W continuous power, without any measurement time restriction, whilst maintaining a smaller spot size for faster CT scanning, collecting data up to 5x faster or with higher accuracy in a similar scan duration of the default 450 kV.
