Data Analysis with Computed Tomography

Industrial computed tomography enables you to perform various evaluations based on the 3D data set (digital twin), for example in metal casting, plastic injection molding or additive manufacturing.

Automated measurement sequences for series testing and various alignment options can be realized with the help of industrial computed tomography.

Metrology

Absolutely transparent measurement is possible on the digital twin of your component created using computer tomography. The measuring points are easily traceable and reliably reproducible. This simplifies documentation in the initial sample test report (FAI) and subsequent verification of the measurement results.

Dimensional accuracyFormtreue (nominal/actual, actual/actual)

The software reconstructs the surfaces of the various materials from the digital twin (surface traceability). These can be compared with the CAD model of the component (target/actual) or another digital twin (actual/actual).

Deviations can be displayed in color according to their size. This so-called false color representation enables a quick and meaningful illustration of the dimensional accuracy, i.e. deviations and distortions over the entire component. This means that external and internal contours can be easily evaluated and local deviations can be displayed using analysis markers.

Porosity analysis

Your component is fully X-rayed, which means that not only surfaces but also all internal contours are imaged and digitized. This makes it possible to examine the sample for defects and blowholes and then output quantitative information and statistics.

This allows you to carry out non-destructive P201 and P202 analyses or check whether pores would be cut through before the component is machined. Defect and void analysis is a very helpful tool when optimizing plastic or metal casting processes.

Assembly analysis

We analyze your assemblies using an X-ray image, 2D live view or a 3D computed tomography scan. For example, you can check the location and position of visible and concealed components in the assembly, as well as internal components for faults. Everything is possible, from inspecting solder joints in memory chips to checking the positioning of catalytic converters and exhaust systems during assembly.

The example image shows a 2D sectional plane of a coil; question: How are the wires positioned?
