What customers frequently ask:

The limits dif­fer depen­ding on the ser­vice used.

1. You send us your com­pon­ents & Micro­vis­ta scans:
In this case, the enve­lo­pe cir­cle of your com­pon­ents can be up to 715 mm if a length of 1100 mm is not excee­ded. If the enve­lo­pe cir­cle is 525 mm or smal­ler, even com­pon­ents with a length of up to 1600 mm can be inspec­ted with indus­tri­al CT.

2. You scan & Micro­vis­ta eva­lua­tes with AI via the cloud:
Under the­se cir­cum­s­tan­ces, it depends on your CT how lar­ge the com­po­nent to be tes­ted may be.

3. You rent our mobi­le CT:
With this you can scan com­pon­ents with an enve­lo­pe cir­cle of up to 798 mm and a length of up to 1802 mm.

This ques­ti­on can­not be ans­we­red in a gene­ral way. The inter­ac­tion of the fac­tors mate­ri­al, desi­red reso­lu­ti­on and cumu­la­ti­ve wall thic­knes­ses (depen­ding on the com­po­nent geo­me­try) have a signi­fi­cant influ­ence on whe­ther a com­po­nent can be inspec­ted with indus­tri­al CT. Howe­ver, the­se are very indi­vi­du­al. The fact that a com­po­nent is made of hea­vy metal, for examp­le, does not have to be an exclu­si­on cri­ter­ion for a CT inspec­tion. It is the­re­fo­re best to ask our experts for advice on whe­ther and how qua­li­ty con­trol can be imple­men­ted for your components.

All Micro­vis­ta CT sys­tems can scan com­pon­ents weig­hing up to 100 kg.

Depen­ding on the tech­ni­cal imple­men­ta­ti­on, the test object or a sys­tem con­sis­ting of an X‑ray source and detec­tor rota­tes. In the pro­cess, the test object is illu­mi­na­ted from many direc­tions. The resul­ting X‑ray images are cal­led pro­jec­tions. With a lot of mathe­ma­tics, the­se pro­jec­tions can then be used to crea­te a digi­tal image of the test object that also con­tains its inter­nal struc­tu­re in a good approximation.

Depen­ding on the com­po­nent size and mate­ri­al, tests can be car­ri­ed out with a spa­ti­al reso­lu­ti­on bet­ween 0.02 and 1 mm.

If you send us your com­pon­ents, our stan­dard deli­very time is 14 days. In the case of rush orders or seri­es inspec­tions, you are wel­co­me to arran­ge indi­vi­du­al solu­ti­ons with our cus­to­mer ser­vice (depen­ding on the inspec­tion task, scan­ning, eva­lua­ti­on & pro­vi­si­on of the results can be car­ri­ed out in less than 24 h).

If you rent the mobi­le CT — the Micro­vis­ta SCANEXPRESS — you will auto­ma­ti­cal­ly recei­ve your results direct­ly after the scan has been car­ri­ed out.

When eva­lua­ting your scans via the Micro­vis­ta Cloud, it depends on whe­ther it is a sin­gle part inspec­tion or a seri­es inspec­tion. Howe­ver, an eva­lua­ti­on in both cases is usual­ly pos­si­ble in less than 24 hours.
