Highly Leak-Tight Ceramic-Metal Assembly for a Novel, Three-Dimensional Imaging X-Ray Process

Alumina Systems/DE cooperates since more than four years with Adaptix/
GB to develop a new 3D FPS (Flat-Panel X-Ray Source) which offers
3D-imaging for a similar radiation dose and cost to traditional 2D X-ray. The
cooperation in the last years enhanced technology on both sides and today
we can say that this product can be a game changer on the X-ray market. In
the following chapter, some of the design and process decisions, as well as
the resulting consequences, which led to the development of this potentially
groundbreaking product, are shown. The development process used partly,
but not exclusively, the approach of “integrative design with ceramics”
propagated by Prof. Maier.
