With the TomoScope® XS, TomoScope technology is now available in a new compact format. The new machine type uniquely combines many advantages of various machine classes. The transmission tube – with a unique monoblock design – produces a small focal spot even at high X-ray power, so that rapid measurements can be performed at high resolution. The new X-ray source combines the advantages of closed and open micro-focus X-ray tubes. The monoblock design combines the source, voltage generator and vacuum pump into a single serviceable unit.
