COMET TURNOVER REACHES CHF 1 MILLION

Turnover reaches CHF 1 million in 1955 and the company posts its first net profit. After some delays, the company begins producing rotary anode X-ray tubes under a license from its partner in 1956.
 
More than 90% of production is exported and the company accounts for 1.5% of the world market in medical X-ray tubes for medical applications.
 
ETH Zurich University is involved in the company’s Panoramix project and several patent applications result from this work.
