X-ray Generation

Market Segment




H.C. Starck Solutions supplies advanced bearing parts for cutting-edge medical X-ray applications. X-ray tubes in computed tomography (CT) scanners make use of rotating anodes to dissipate heat in a high vacuum environment. This places extreme demands on the mechanical and thermal resilience of their components, which can only be met by high-performance refractory metals and alloys. Offering exceptional wear-resistance and thermal conductivity, our spiral-grooved refractory metal bearings play a vital role in rotating anode assemblies in high-energy X-ray tubes.

Materials and Specifications

H.C. Starck Solutions manufactures bearing parts from a wide range of refractory metals and alloys, including molybdenum (Mo), electron-beam melted (EBM) molybdenum, and titanium-zirconium-molybdenum alloy (TZM). Offering excellent mechanical strength even at extreme temperatures, molybdenum and molybdenum alloys provide the necessary durability for high specification use cases.

H.C. Starck is a world leader in the production of high-performance refractory bearing parts for medical X-rays and other applications. With a range of in-house research and development services; we work closely with our customers to provide unique, tailor-made solutions.
