CT system solution: Measure in production ZEISS VoluMax

Computed Tomography Inspection with High Throughput

ZEISS VoluMax CT systems are designed for applications where many components must be inspected quickly. ZEISS customizes the machine and software to fit the inspection job. The ZEISS VoluMax can be configured for both manual and automated loading.

Inline Process Control with Industrial Computed Tomography

Test directly in production

ZEISS inline CT scanners perform 100% of all inspections on manufactured plastic and light metal components in the production flow – even in harsh production environments. They automatically provide good/bad evaluations so that unusable components can be filtered out. Many different product features can be captured and saved during CT serial inspection.

Significant measuring project experience

Many projects for the CT inspection of plastic, metal and composite components have already been implemented using the ZEISS VoluMax systems. For example: ZEISS VoluMax CT scanners have inspected the dimensional stability of plastic components, examined cylinder heads for cavities and sand residue and have been used to test whether or not an airbag has been correctly assembled. ZEISS VoluMax CT solutions are also used inline for 100% inspection and atline for testing large quantities of random samples.

Replace multiple inspections with one scan

An important advantage of 3D tomography is its ability to replace multiple, complex individual inspections. Dimensional variations, discontinuities, inclusions and every type of deformation can be inspected with just one scan. Cycle times of just a few seconds are possible. There's an additional benefit: the results are automatically documented with the ZEISS VoluMax

ZEISS CT Software: From data generation to process monitoring

With ZEISS software, you use ZEISS VoluMax efficiently and utilize the potential to the fullest. The user interface (of ZEISS METROTOM OS) has been simplified so that trained workers in production can operate the CT system easily and safely. ZEISS CALYPSO and the ZEISS CT visualisation software can be used for the metrological evaluation of the CT data. The results can be processed further using the ZEISS PiWeb quality data system.
