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! Simply send us a message and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

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

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

The following diagram illustrates the essential functioning of a CT:
Funktionsweise CT

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, which also contains its internal structure in a good approximation.

The following units of measurement apply to components that you would like us to scan:

Height

2000 mm

Diameter

600 mm

Weight

100 kg

Cumulative wall thicknesses can be radiated (depending on the component geometry):

Steel

80 mm

Iron

100 mm

Alu­mini­um

400 mm

Plastic

750 mm

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