Imaging investigation techniques have already been used in medical technology for decades. Development is moving towards techniques which produce increasingly detailed spatial images; in other words, which enable better test results, whilst simultaneously protecting the patients. To do this, the X-ray pipes and the detector rotate at high speed around the patient.
Our bearings used here are designed so that they work smoothly and precisely, even at high speeds. In this way, thyssenkrupp rothe erde makes an important contribution to medical progress.
Luggage scanners, which are used for security checks at airports, among other uses, constitute a further application with similar requirements.
