Ensuring the longevity of battery systems Due to their high energy density, lithium-ion batteries can be found in numerous technical devices — including smartphones, tablets, laptops, cameras & even electric cars. However, the batteries harbor dangers, which is why an inspection for safety-relevant defects is very important: the contact, insulation and electrolyte foils can be demolished […]
Challenges with additively manufactured components Additive manufacturing is still a relatively new manufacturing method that can be used to develop very complex component shapes with intricate internal structures that can be used in a variety of ways. Materials are applied successively — the product development process therefore requires carefully coordinated parameters. In order to shorten the […]
Iron casting — opportunity & challenge for lightweight construction Lightweight construction does not automatically mean “light metal”, as light metals cannot be used at high temperatures and pressures. Thin-walled cast iron or steel and innovative, bionic design are used to create components that can compete with functional elements made of light metal. Mass savings and good […]
Experts in the testing of automotive parts Non-destructive testing of components using industrial CT has been an integral part of quality assurance in the automotive industry for many years. Manufacturers know that quick feedback in the event of deviations in product quality saves costs. In times of lightweight construction, the transition to electromobility and increased […]
Light metal castings can have deviant qualities. Find out here how industrial CT is making sure that those are quality approved.
Microvista promises its customers economical and fast (serial) inspection. But how exactly can we keep this promise? One factor in this promise involves fully automated data evaluation, which the CT experts at Microvista have been further optimising for years using AI. However, the evaluation service is only one of many steps required to successfully analyse […]
After the ScanExpress arrived at Microvista at the end of March this year and the last remaining work was carried out, it has now set off on its first journey. A global casting technology company that focuses on providing systems for the mobility industry will be using the mobile CT at its German site for […]
Quality managers play a crucial role in ensuring product quality during the production process and the product release procedure (PPF process). Thanks to technological advances, a number of test methods are available to them for this purpose, which ensure that an efficient and accurate quality assessment of components is possible. However, before any new PPF […]
Both industrial X‑ray inspection and industrial computed tomography are among the imaging methods used in materials testing. But how do they differ and when should which inspection method be used? Industrial X‑ray inspection Non-destructive materials testing using X‑rays is used to visualise internal structures of materials such as metals, plastics, ceramics and composites. X‑ray images are […]
Industrial computed tomography and artifacts to admire in the museum? In which cases is a CT used in a museum.
