RELIABLE X-RAY WINDOW ASSEMBLIES & TUBES


To ensure reliable, superior performance for the most accurate medical images and commercial scans, Materion uses a specialized diffusion bonding process to manufacture our beryllium X-ray window assemblies.

We join the X-ray foil to the window or tube using diffusion bonding to create a strong seal. This bonding is accomplished at temperatures below the melting point of the interstitial alloy, resulting in high temperature performance without compromising the strength of the beryllium, a principle weakness of conventionally brazed windows.

CASE STUDY: IMPROVING MEDICAL IMAGING WITH BERYLLIUM

Varex Imaging Corporation, a world leader in medical X-rays and image processing solutions, was able to streamline their production of advanced X-ray systems by getting their high purity beryllium X-ray windows from Materion.
