Mobile CT at the VDI conference on casting technology in engine construction

SCANEXPRESS bei der VDI-Tagung Gießtechnik im Motorenbau

The auto­mo­ti­ve indus­try is facing con­stant­ly gro­wing chal­lenges and must adapt to chan­ging requi­re­ments. A cen­tral issue here is the tran­si­ti­on to elec­tric and inter­nal com­bus­ti­on engi­nes with hydro­gen. A key com­po­nent in engi­ne con­s­truc­tion will still be cas­ting tech­no­lo­gy. Depen­ding on the cas­ting pro­cess, cast pro­ducts are sus­cep­ti­ble to defects in dif­fe­rent ways, which […]

7 Steps of Industrial CT-Testing

Industrielle CT-Prüfung

CT inspec­tion is com­mon­ly used to inspect com­pon­ents non-des­truc­tively. What are the steps when test­ing them at an exter­nal ser­vice provider?

Arrival of the mobile CT


Day of arri­val How did the arri­val of the mobi­le CT pro­ceed? After com­ple­ti­on and trans­port to the site, a mobi­le cra­ne was used to unload the con­tai­ner of the SCANEXPRESS from the trai­ler. Due to the pro­fes­sio­nal use of the cra­ne, it was unloa­ded quick­ly and safe­ly. In the future, the mobi­le CT will […]

Microvista certified once again


Micro­vis­ta is com­mit­ted to high qua­li­ty stan­dards, which is why it was once again award­ed the ISO 9001:2015 cer­ti­fi­ca­te by an inde­pen­dent audit (…)

5 popular non destructive testing methods in the automotive industry


The­re are num­e­rous fields of appli­ca­ti­on for non-des­­truc­­ti­­ve test­ing methods in the auto­mo­ti­ve indus­try. In addi­ti­on to qua­li­ty con­trol rela­ted to safe­ty stan­dards, pro­to­ty­pes can also be inspec­ted befo­re they go into mass pro­duc­tion. Non-des­­truc­­ti­­ve test­ing also pro­vi­des a more sus­tainable way to use raw mate­ri­als, which is beco­ming incre­asing­ly important in today’s world. Because […]

Mobile CT & container united — the SCANEXPRESS (almost) ready

Hochzeit vom CT CAGE und Container abgeschlossen

After the final work in the area of radia­ti­on pro­tec­tion and inte­ri­or work on the con­tai­ner of the mobi­le CT sys­tem was car­ri­ed out in the last few weeks, the mobi­le CT was pla­ced in the con­tai­ner last week — a major mile­stone in the over­all con­s­truc­tion pro­cess of the SCANEXPRESS, on which three teams […]

Minimise rejects in the automotive industry with non-destructive testing

Automobilindustrie - Roboter in der Produktion

Defects in pro­duc­tion bat­ches in the auto­mo­ti­ve indus­try often result in the enti­re batch being lost, as the search for the cau­se of the defect is con­side­red cos­t­ly — howe­ver, saving the par­ti­al batch is not only quick and easy, but can also be achie­ved cost-effec­­tively with the help of non-des­­truc­­ti­­ve test­ing (NDT). With this […]

Final spurt now also for the mobile CT Container

Container mobiles CT

Impres­si­ons of the cur­rent sta­tus The heart of the mobi­le CT is alre­a­dy finis­hed. Now it is a mat­ter of com­ple­ting its shell. That’s why we step­ped on the gas again at the end of last year to push ahead with the con­s­truc­tion of the CT con­tai­ner. In addi­ti­on to the CT, this will also […]
