Our technologies and procedures for manufacturing collimators
- Precision laser- and EDM cutting
- Selective laser melting (SLM) as an additive manufacturing technology for Mo and W
We process refractory metals such as molybdenum and tungsten to produce high-precision collimators for X-ray detectors. These filter scattered radiation from the ray cone, thereby significantly increasing the image quality. Our materials are perfect for this task thanks to their excellent absorption capacity.
Tailored production methods
Additive manufacturing technology (SLM)
REACH- and RoHS-compliant materials
Our shieldings made of tungsten, molybdenum, and the tungsten heavy-metal alloy Densimet® only let the radiation through where it is actually needed. They therefore provide maximum protection for humans and the environment. Our materials satisfy RoHS criteria (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) and represent an alternative to components containing lead.
