Frequently asked questions and answers

We have compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions for you. Your question is not included? No problem! Just write us a message and we will get back to you immediately.

We use two different CT systems:

1) Laboratory CT: 450/ 225kV BIR/ Varian with line and area detector

2) Fast CT/ AT-Line: Siemens Somatom AS+

We use the CT laboratory for initial sampling of components, for assembly control, for CAD target/actual comparison, for examination of the general porosity and for pore analysis according to OEM standard.

Our fast CT/AT-Line is used for series or series-accompanying tests, for assembly checks and for porosity tests.

The following diagram illustrates the main functions of a CT:
Funktionsweise CT

Depending on the technical implementation, the test object rotates or a system consisting of X-ray source and detector. The test object is illuminated from many directions. The resulting X-ray images are called projections. Using a lot of mathematics, a digital image of the test object can then be created from these projections, which also contains a good approximation of its inner structure.

The following units of measurement apply to components that you would like to have scanned by us:

Height

2000 mm

Diameter

600 mm

Weight

100 kg

Cumulated wall thicknesses can be radiographed (depending on the component geometry):

Steel

80 mm

Iron

100 mm

Aluminium

400 mm

Plastics

750 mm

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