Swiss Army Knife
Computed Tomography offers materials characterization, metrology, assembly analysis and more in one scan at high resolution and accuracy.
Visualize the Invisible
Industrial X-ray technology allows a 3D view into the component without preparation. The scans have high explanatory power and show the inner workings of the component, revealing its secrets.
Solutions beyond Images
Industrial experience and scientific methodology provide quantifiable results and solutions to practical problems. Clarity in displaying the results forms the basis for confidence in the solution.
X-ray your Component
2D X-ray Inspection
Our high-resolution 2D X-ray analysis enables economical and non-destructive testing. It provides a high level of detail detection. 2D X-ray inspection enables a targeted defect analysis, especially for printed circuit boards, in connection technology, and in series testing.
3D Computed Tomography
Our powerful microfocus X-ray tube enables high-resolution and non-destructive imaging of your component. Strongly absorbing materials and components can be investigated quantitatively, due to the high power. The volume-based evaluation enables a wide range of analyses.
We Analyze for You
Cavities, pores, cracks or material inclusions can be determined and measured in a defect analysis.
The 3D distribution and orientation of the fibers can be analyzed.
Foams and Powders
Voids and pores can be quantified for their properties such as volume, surface area and sphericity or compactness.
We Measure for You
We measure distances, angles or radii for deviations from the nominal dimension.
Dimensioning and Tolerancing
Geometric product specifications are measured against toleranced drawing specifications for allowed deviations of components.
The color-coded comparison allows the comparison of (i) part and CAD, (ii) OK part and NOK part, (iii) parts from different suppliers, or (iv) part before and after test.
The analysis of the wall thickness offers conclusions about the production process.
We Inspect for You
A look inside components provides insights about correct assembly.
Solder Joints and Connections
Connection points can be checked for their mechanical or electrical contact.
Printed Circuit Boards
The reliability of printed circuit boards can be evaluated. This is also possible in places that are not accessible with conventional methods.
Industrial Computed Tomography at Work
3D Measurement Technology
Digitizing the entire component using computed tomography enables precise and fast analysis of drawing features and tolerances. In addition, free-form surfaces can be compared directly with CAD, giving the user a simple method of visualizing deviations. The automation capability of the inspection methods makes 3D metrology with CT economical for series inspections and release testing.
The mechanical properties and fatigue strength of additively manufactured structures are strongly influenced by porosity and internal defects. Industrial X-ray computed tomography allows quantitative characterization of material defects. With these results, load capacities of materials or components can be determined.
Rechargeable batteries enable our digitized lives in the 21st century. Discover the advantages of computed tomography (CT) in development and quality assurance of batteries. High resolution and richness of details of non-destructive CT scans allow a comprehensive inspection of the battery and assembly.
The high resolution of industrial computed tomography (iCT) enables detailed characterization of solder joints, clamping contacts or material defects in electronic components. The non-destructive nature of iCT scans can be used to quantitatively assess quality before and after lifetime testing.
Internal structures and hidden defects can be detected, inspected, and analyzed, while the component remains fully assembled. This opens up new possibilities in product development and quality assurance. It gives the developer a new set of tools for more efficient and technology-driven product development.
Fiber Reinforced Concrete
The high strength of fiber reinforced concrete is achieved by the addition of glass fibers and a low porosity. Computed tomography enables the quantitative characterization of porosity and fiber orientation in the material. Based on these findings, concrete quality can be controlled and development loops accelerated.
