Automated high-speed Computed Tomography for production process control and optimization


  • Productivity and quality gain due to quantitative 3D automated defect recognition and dimensional control
  • Cost savings due to faster product ramp up times and minimized rejects
  • Up to 100 % 3D production control of large castings
  • 64-channel data acquisition and patented quick-slide manipulator for rapid sample throughput rate
  • Scan speed down to 15 sec. for a cylinder head allows several hundred times faster 3D inspection compared to conventional industrial fan beam CT
  • Max. sample size ~600mm diameter x 900mm length; max. scan diameter ~500mm
  • Optimized ease of use and cost of ownership due to high grade of automatization


  • Up to 100 % 3D production process control e.g. in production of safety critical components
  • Central fast CT surveilling unit controlling the output of many production lines
  • Proven, gantry based 64 channel CT acquisition off ers several hundred times faster inspection compared to conventional industrial fan beam CT
  • Much faster CT scanning (better statistics) substituting other NDT inspection and metrology processes
  • Fast 3D inspection and dimensional control of complex parts & complete feedback for improved reaction on process fl uctuations
  • Early scrap detection before any further processing steps
  • Optimization of plant equipment and tool maintenance intervals
