INDUSTRIAL COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY

For sound product and process development, process monitoring and requalification:
Industrial computed tomography (ICT) makes it possible to look inside your component, without destroying it. In this way we analyse the internal and external characteristics of your components non-destructively. For this purpose, we acquire the complete component digitally and prepare a 3D volume model. We can thus straightforwardly assess even complex geometries non-destructively and without contact.

3D DIGITISATION, CRACK TESTING OR WALL THICKNESS ANALYSES

The non-destructive view of industrial computed tomography is the crucial advantage of this method. It makes it possible for us to provide statements about porosity, defects, cracks, wall thicknesses, assembly states and nominal-actual comparisons. Industrial computed tomography can also be used in areas in which optical and tactile measurement is not possible.

Its applications include the evaluation of component quality, damage analysis, (virtual) product development, initial sampling, measurements during series production and tool correction. High-resolution X-ray and CT systems in performance classes up to 450 kV and resolutions up to 70 nm are available for this purpose.

TECHNICAL EQUIPMENT

Our versatile range of systems covers performance classes up to 450 kV with 2D X-ray machines and 3D computed tomographs. Due to our versatile equipment, we can analyse components of all sizes including mono and mixed materials of low to high density, for example plastics and fibre composite materials, elastomers, rock, wood and various metals. We prepare our quick analyses and clear evaluations using evaluation software from VGStudio MAX, GOM Inspect Professional and ZEISS Calypso.

The right machine for every requirement

We acquire all workpieces, whether small or large components, with differences in weight, material density and geometry digitally using 2D and 3D methods. The component size that can be acquired is maximum 550 mm in diameter (X, Y-axis) and 1200 mm in height (Z-axis). We select for you the appropriate machine and analysis method from our range of equipment depending on the resolution required, component size and material density.
