Have you ever tried to steer a touch screen with gloves?

六月 01, 2022

...Well, you can't. An outstanding user experience comes with understanding and mastering this kind of details. With the UX50, Comet’s Yxlon went exactly this route, leveraging its profound know-how of industry thanks to its inspection experts.

The result? A uniquely capable high-energy CT system that allows our customers to heroically master their inspection challenges with ease.

Let’s peek behind the scenes with Peter Kramm.

UX50: it's 35 brains

When talking about UX50 with Peter Kramm, Product Manager at Comet’s Yxlon for more than 18 years, what stands out is his pride for this new solution. With good reasons. The UX50 is the result of an incredible collaboration of 35 experts trying to solve problems the user faces when using x-ray systems in harsh industrial environments.

"High-tech companies like Yxlon usually focus on the power of technology, which is both a curse and a blessing because after all, the basis for any outstanding development must be the customers and their needs" says Peter. "And that's exactly what we've done: together with various customers, engineers and service experts from Yxlon, we've created a CT system that goes far beyond its predecessor, the CT Compact."

 

UX50: it's development at the speed of light

Given the many people involved what is even more surprising is a look at the development time. The UX50 was born after only 18 months of work: From project inception to its launch in February 2022!

Given the current supply chain challenges and COVID safety measures, it’s not exactly speed of light but impressive for this kind of industry. “It makes me confident for the future”, says Peter. “With reviewed development processes, we are now capable of faster go-to-market times and can address customers’ requirements much more quickly."

 

UX50: it's turning the user into a hero

“Have you ever tried to use a touch screen with gloves?” Peter Kramm asks. “It can look like a small issue but running modern technologies in industrial environments is full of these small challenges, that sum up quite fast, making the user inspection experience difficult. Our priority was to make the UX50 fast and easy to use, so we're confident the users will become the hero of their daily inspection tasks."

Peter also confesses that he is very happy to see application engineers, who have been included at early development stage, excited about the product: "If they can better address user’s inspection needs, it’s more satisfying for everyone". Since the first prototype Peter felt people liked to work with it.

 

So, what’s next with the UX50?

Based on the first customers and user feedbacks, the next improvements of the UX50 are already in the pipeline. The product is based on the user-friendly, cross-system Geminy software platform and benefits from its continuous further developments. It is particularly suitable for testing large and dense parts in the automotive sector and can grow with the user's requirements thanks to a well thought-out upgrade concept."The more Geminy will evolve, the more it will ease the users' inspection tasks” Peter says.

“We want to keep the product evolving to address the ever-challenging needs of the users. In the team a launch is no longer seen as a final line, but the starting one.”

“We don’t create a new product to fill specs of a product range. We do it because people that work in quality assurance face challenges that need to be solved.”
