Medical X-Ray Tubes

The Technical Ceramics business of Morgan Advanced Materials produces a family of medical x-ray components, from anodes and cathodes to getter assemblies. Utilizing our advanced ceramic-to-metal seal technology we are able to provide reliable and robust x-ray components. We are capable of manufacturing custom solutions to the unique challenges within the x-ray market, based upon the expansive knowledge and expertise of our applications engineers.

Our medical x-ray products combine a variety of metal components and high purity Alumina (Al203) ceramic with flexible, custom designs. We utilise a range of alumina grades depending on requirement including our high dielectric strength AL300TMalumina which has been optimised for this application. Our ceramic-to-metal designs also ensure cost competitive manufacturing by incorporating a consistent, repeatable manufacturing process. The design flexibility, along with the availability of upper level builds, produces medical x-ray components to the customer's specification at a lower total cost.

Reliability, is a core element within our design and manufacturing process, which is why our medical x-ray components reduce the risk of hermetic leaks, offer thermal shock resistance and are engineered without size restrictions. The superior electrical properties of the components also allow for a higher power and safety margin design. The innovations developed by us within the family of x-ray components allow for the longer life of x-ray tubes and showcase the many application-specific advantages of ceramic-to-metal assemblies.
