3D Computed Tomography


The classic application of industrial X-ray 3D computed tomography (micro ct and nano ct) is the inspection and three-dimensional measurement of metal and plastic castings. However, phoenix|x-ray’s high-resolution X-ray technology opens up a variety of new applications in fields such as sensor technology, electronics, materials science, and many other natural sciences.

Turbine blades are complex high-performance castings which have to fulfill highest quality and security-requirements. CT allows failure analysis as well as precise 3D measurements (e.g. wall-thickness).

Material Science


High-resolution computed tomography (micro ct and nano ct) is used for inspecting materials, composites, sintered materials and ceramics but also to analyze geological or biological samples. Materials distribution, voids and cracks are visualized three-dimensionally at microscopic resolution.

3D metrology with X-ray is the only technique allowing to non-destructively measure the interior of complex objects. By contrast with conventional tactile coordinate measurement technique, a computed tomography scan of an object acquires all surface points simultaneously – including all hidden features like undercuts which are not accessible non-destructively using other methods of measurement. The v|tome|x s has a special 3D metrology package that contains everything needed for dimensional measuring with the greatest possible precision, reproducibility and user-friendliness, from calibration instruments to surface extraction modules. In addition to 2D wall thickness measurements, the CT volume data can be quickly and easily compared with CAD data, for example, in order to analyse the complete component to ensure it complies with all specified dimensions.

Casting & Welding


Radiographic non-destructive testing is used to detect flaws in castings and welds. The combination of microfocus X-ray technology and industrial X-ray computed tomography (mico ct) enables defect detectability in the micrometer range and provides three-dimensional images of low-contrast defects.

The tomographic image is the basis for three-dimensional measurement (Surface reconstruction and normative-actual value comparison).
