Abstract

Conventionally, the cathode support for holding the tube insert is composed of several plastic parts, which has complex structure and high in cost. This article proposes a new tube cathode support, which is of one-piece structure made of elastic material such as rubber. The proposed support can be used in X-ray Tube housing for insert positioning.

Tube cathode support

Abstract: Conventionally, the cathode support for holding the tube insert is composed of several plastic parts, which has complex structure and high in cost. This article proposes a new tube cathode support, which is of one-piece structure made of elastic material such as rubber. The proposed support can be used in X-ray Tube housing for insert positioning.

Conventionally, tube cathode support assembly structure is composed by several parts. The proposed cathode support has been simplified as one piece or one part.

Conventional tube cathode support assembly has the following disadvantages:
1). several parts

2). Complex structure

3). High price

The proposed tube cathode support has the following advantages:

1). One part

2). Simple structure

3). More cheaper

As illustrated below, in a particular embodiment, the surfaces for contacting the tube insert has 1degree decline, make holding insert more tightly. Surfaces with chamfer inside is towards to anode side.
