SERVICE SPECIALIST FOR INDUSTRIAL COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY
MICROVISTA MAKES THE DIFFERENCE
Individual & Reliable
Fast & Cost-Effective
Pores & Shrinkage
Typical defects in components are pores, shrinkage holes and inclusions. These flaws can be detected by means of a CT examination, displayed in 3D, evaluated according to the various standards (P202, VW50093). Depending on the component and accuracy requirements, scan results are available in just a few seconds. This makes CT inspection surprisingly affordable.
Wall thickness measurement
The industrial computer tomographs can also work as coordinate measuring machines. Measurements can be taken at any drawing position and compared with specifications. In connection with lightweight construction requirements, wall thickness measurement always plays a special role.
CT data evaluation
Microvista has also developed and implemented an automated process for CT data evaluation. You can provide us with your reconstructed CT scan data and inspection requests 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. Preset parameters classify components in high quantities and in very short cycle times (see above).
Assembly and joint control
Industrially or manually manufactured assemblies can be examined by means of CT within the scope of an assembly and joining inspection with regard to assembly defects without disassembling 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 ultrasonics. Instead of water and gel, air is used as the coupling medium. This method has the advantage of being able to be integrated directly into a production process. In addition, it is possible to test objects made of easily deformable materials (e.g. elastomers). The non-destructive air ultrasonic examination is ideally suited for inspecting 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 obtain a universal CAD model without manufacturing deviations, it is then reworked with a CAD programme.
The use of AI
The use of artificial intelligence (AI) in non-destructive testing ensures efficiency, cost savings and defect avoidance. Microvista makes targeted use of automatic evaluation processes that check components for defects and has developed tools to be able to deliver robust solutions even with little initial data.
Up to now, the logistics to and from the inspection 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.
Research and development at Microvista
Since 2011, Microvista has been investing in research and development for image enhancement in CT scans and the automatic evaluation of scans with regard to dimensional and structural IO/NIO criteria.
