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.
Fast CT for the inspection & measurement of component series
In various application scenarios, series production component testing is a great added value for OEMs and the entire supply chain: The fast and cost-effective inspection of batches enables quality defects to be identified and costs for the further processing of components with hidden defects to be reduced.
We help you reach your quality goal:
- You achieve a capable/mastered production process and can reduce your inspection effort step by step.
- We prevent the blocking of your batch and provide you with a proof of quality.
Fast and cost-effective 100% inspection
Through the combination of a fast CT and a specially developed software for the analysis and evaluation of the scan results, we can realize an automatic serial testing up to 100% inspection - and all this at a reasonable price!
With the use of artificial intelligence in
series testing, Microvista is considered a pioneer in the field of
automated analysis and evaluation routines of CT scan data in the industrial sector.
In the journal "Foundry" (April 2019 issue) we have published a technical article on this topic.
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 digitized. The real geometry is then available as a point cloud. In order to obtain a universal CAD model without manufacturing deviations, the part is 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.
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.
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.
You have your own CT, but need help with data evaluation? Your capacities to evaluate scan data are limited and your staff is not trained? The manual analysis takes valuable time for other urgent tasks and special programs for evaluation are not available?
Microvista not only has two state-of-the-art computer tomographs, but has also developed and implemented an automated process for CT data evaluation. 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.
Whether small quantity or serial scan - put the CT data evaluation into our hands. We save you time & costs and deliver immediately reliable evaluation results - according to your wishes.
NDT: Air-coupled ultrasound
In addition to industrial computer tomography, Microvista also offers non-destructive materials testing using air-coupled ultrasound. Hereby, air is used as coupling agent instead of water and gel. This examination method has the great 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 ultrasound examination is ideal for testing for defects, inclusions and inhomogeneities in plastics, wood, fibre composites, laminations, multi-layer panel constructions and joints. A software developed especially for testing continuously displays the measurement results in interpretable form.
