Exxelia Ohmcraft High voltage resistors in 3D dental imaging

To ensure the reliability of 3D imaging used by dentists, CBCT system manufacturers have relied on Exxelia Ohmcraft's custom high voltage resistors.


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.

Boost your project with Exxelia film capacitors with reduced delivery times!

We are pleased to announce that certain products in our RA and KM film capacitor series, as well as our special PMR range (for the medical and railway markets), now benefit from reduced delivery times.   Reduced lead times for film capacitors of the RA (Polypropylene PP) and KM (Polyphenylene sulfide PPS) families: Indeed, delivery times for film capacitors in the RA and KM ranges have been considerably reduced. Previously, these products had an average lead time of 20 weeks, but through efforts to optimize our supply chain, we have managed to reduce this lead time to just 8 weeks on average! One of the key product of this range is the KM 111 S/T. This high performance film capacitor is ideal for a wide range of applications, such as power electronics, filters, inverters. The KM 111 S/T provides the precise capacitance value needed for special aviation electromechanical applications. With its high operating voltage and high energy density, the KM 111 S/T offers outstanding performance. And now, with a lead time reduced to just 8 weeks, you can incorporate it into your designs faster, accelerating your product development.

In some cases, we have been able to reduce the usual delivery times for these specific products by a factor of 10. This means you can now get the PMR range film capacitors you need in record time! Film capacitors in the PMR range are specifically designed to meet the stringent requirements of medical and railway applications. Their reliability, stability, and extended life make them ideal choices for medical equipment, monitoring devices, rail transportation systems, and more. Thanks to our reduced delivery times, you can now benefit from these advantages without waiting long to receive your products.   PMR EFCO PMR 4 PMR 64
