Service provider for industrial computed tomography
Your quality partner
Microvista offers services in the field of non-destructive testing (NDT / Non-Destructive Testing) and has specialized in industrial computed tomography.
We test individual parts, components or (component) series and detect features & dimensions, so that a long-term and safe use of the tested parts in vehicles, airplanes or machines is permanently guaranteed. Within the scope of this quality assurance, only parts that are NIO at the defined points become rejects.
Our range of services extends from initial sampling to the fast, series-accompanying inspection of large quantities. Microvista integrates inline CT systems and offers the implementation of customer-specific inspection concepts. Intelligent, automated analysis and evaluation routines of CT scan data are already an integral part of our solution strategy and allow us to meet the highest quality requirements at a reasonable price.
In addition to our measurement services, we are also happy to support you in evaluating your CT scan data.
Automatic inspection of larger samples up to 100% inspection. Due to preset parameters, components in high quantities and with very low cycle times are classified (see above).
There is neither a current drawing nor a CAD model of an existing component. In reverse engineering, a real component is first digitised. The real geometry is then available as a point cloud. In order to achieve a universal CAD model without manufacturing deviations, the part is then reworked with a CAD program.
Core residues, chips, ridge
The CT examination allows cavities to be checked for the presence of sand or core residues, larger chips and burrs caused by core breakage in castings. In case of burr, the quantity of the closure can be determined automatically.
CT data evaluation
Microvista has also developed an automated process for CT data evaluation and implemented. You can provide us with your reconstructed CT scan data and inspection requirements in the Microvista Secure Cloud. The results are checked via a Q-Gate and transferred to you in the form of data and an inspection report via the cloud.
Assembly and joint control
Industrially or manually manufactured assemblies can be examined by means of CT as part of an assembly and joining inspection with regard to assembly errors without dismantling or destroying them.
Typical defects in components are pores, blowholes and inclusions. These can be detected by means of a CT examination, displayed in 3D and evaluated with state-of-the-art CT analysis software.
Wall thickness measurement
The industrial computer tomographs can also work as coordinate measuring machines. Measurements can be taken at any position on the drawing and compared with specifications. In connection with lightweight construction requirements, wall thickness measurement plays a special role.
Microvista offers non-destructive materials testing using air-coupled ultrasound. Instead of water and gel, air is used as the coupling agent. This method has the advantage that it can be integrated directly into a production process. It is also possible to test objects made of easily deformable materials (e.g. elastomers). The non-destructive airborne ultrasonic examination is ideal for testing for defects, inclusions and inhomogeneities, among other things.
Use of AI
The use of artificial intelligence (AI) ensures efficiency, cost savings and error prevention in non-destructive testing. Microvista makes targeted use of automatic evaluation methods in which components are checked for defects and has developed tools to provide robust solutions even with few initial data.
Up to now, the logistics to and from the testing service provider during series inspection have been associated with high costs and time expenditure. These expenses can now be saved: With the mobile "Flex CT" system, the inspection of larger quantities of parts can soon be carried out directly at the customer's premises. Microvista is currently developing such a system and will soon provide further information on the concept and availability.
