X-ray tube manufacture. Technician manufacturing an X-ray tube. An X-ray tube consists of a glass tube housing an anode, cathode, filament and tungsten target in a vacuum. An electron beam flows between the cathode and anode until it gains enough energy and is directed at the tungsten target. The impact causes the release of energy, some of which is in the form of X-rays. This tube is being manufactured by G E Medical Services.
