Exxelia Ohmcraft High voltage resistors in 3D dental imaging
To capture adequate images of a patient’s teeth and jaw, dentists rely on advanced 3D imaging from cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) systems. The CBCT system’s outputs are critical for the accurate diagnosis of oral health concerns and subsequent plans for treatment. To ensure the reliability of these images, manufacturers of CBCT systems have leveraged Exxelia Ohmcraft’s custom, high voltage resistors. “In general, X-Rays require very high voltages to operate and generate clear, precise 3D images,” said Eric Van Wormer, Vice President of Exxelia Ohmcraft. “Because of the unmatched precision and control in surface-mount and leaded resistors from Exxelia Ohmcraft, manufacturers of this type of technology have turned to us to help ensure the reliability of their systems and the quality of the images they produce.” CBCT systems are used to assist dentists in a variety of procedures, including dental implant placement, root canal therapy, the treatment of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction, and oral surgery. Exxelia Ohmcraft’s technology utilizes the proprietary Micropen electronic printing system to “print” precise, narrow, serpentine lines with resistive ink on a ceramic substrate, producing higher performance resistors over a wider range of values on a smaller surface area than is possible with conventional film resistor technology.
NASA's X-59 QueSST: Exxelia is on board
If the program lives up to its promise, it could lead to the emergence of supersonic transport aircraft capable of flying over land, without the limitations imposed on Concorde in its day. For this project, Exxelia mainly produces coils from our US sites. Our components are intended for the aircraft engine. With its elongated nose, its "humped" wings and its small scattered lifting surfaces, the X-59 is unlike any other aircraft. An exceptional configuration for exceptional capabilities. Credits: NASA It will fly at a speed of 1.5 Mach (1.5 times the speed of sound), or more than 1,800 kilometers per hour. NASA hopes that its aircraft will eventually be used in civil aviation. If the tests are successful, the X-59 QueSST could have two revolutionary effects on the U.S. and even the world's aeronautical landscape: The test aircraft could serve as inspiration for future mass-produced transport aircraft, whether airliners or business jets. The LBFD project as a whole could lead to an evolution of current aviation regulations. Rather than banning all civilian supersonic flights over the U.S., as is the case today, NASA is proposing to introduce noise-based regulation. Credits : Lockheed Martin, NASA
