Tungsten and Molybdenum Collimators
Elmet is the world leader in delivering state of the art molybdenum collimator systems to the medical imaging industry. Elmet works closely with leading system OEMs to develop solutions that both deliver the high-performance expectations of patients and meet the goals of care providers – reducing dosage, exposure times, and cost.
Elmet delivers a complete line of 1D and 2D collimator solutions, using Elmet engineering to optimize quality and efficient manufacturing of customer designs. Our industry-leading expertise in this application puts us at the forefront of cutting-edge technologies and collimator solutions. Our collimator foil material is produced on a precision rolling mill to thicknesses less than 0.002″ (0.05mm) and meets the most stringent quality requirements for thickness tolerance, surface finish, and flatness. Molybdenum is an excellent material for use in x-ray collimator applications. Its high rigidity and density help hold form in dynamic imaging applications, thus blocking unwanted x-rays that cause blurry images.
Products and applications:
- Molybdenum foils
- Molybdenum assemblies
- Many other customer-specific collimator designs (e.g. pinholes, slotted foils)
- Additional material options such as tungsten and tungsten heavy alloy
- Solutions for CT, nuclear medicine, and industrial radiography (cargo inspection)
