FOR INDUSTRIAL COMPUTERTOMOGRAPHY
MICROVISTA MAKES THE DIFFERENCE
Individual & Reliable
Fast & Cost-Effective
Pores & Shrinkage
Typical defects in components are pores, blowholes and inclusions. These can be detected by means of a CT scan, displayed in 3D, evaluated according to the various standards (P202, VW50093). Scan results are available after only a few seconds, depending on the component and accuracy requirements. This makes CT inspection surprisingly inexpensive.
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.
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.
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).
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.
Core residues, chips, burr
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.
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.
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.
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.
Research and development at Microvista
Since 2011, Microvista has been investing in research and development to improve CT images and the automatic evaluation of images with regard to dimensional and structural IO/NIO criteria.
