MEASURING WALL THICKNESS WITH INDUSTRIAL CT
Measurement of wall thicknesses with complex geometries
“Faster & further” — this motto is followed for electric vehicles as well as for combustion engines. Low part weight with high mechanical strength at the same time is required.
Complex geometries are the result. However, these lead most test methods to their limits. Optical & tactile measuring methods only work if the walls are freely accessible. In ultrasonic or X‑ray testing, there must be no superimposition to enable correct measurement of wall thicknesses. Industrial CT overcomes these limitations & makes it possible to measure wall thicknesses with complicated geometries.
Wall thickness measurement for series or individual components
To ensure the robustness of large quantities, Microvista performs a fully automatic & economical measurement of the wall thickness at predefined points on each component. NOK components can be immediately sorted out by a real-time evaluation. The inspection can be performed at your production site with a mobile CT solution or via your CT via cloud. Alternatively, you can also send Microvista your components. Microvista carries out both series and individual part inspections in its in-house CT laboratory. If you need to do it quickly, you can book an express option for the individual part inspection.

Identify critical deviations
The blue guide lines indicate the target range for the wall thickness. A wall thickness that is too thin, as shown in the picture, can lead to a breakdown in the field. This would result in the electric vehicle coming to a standstill after a short time.
A quality control with CT prevents wall thicknesses that are too thin from remaining undetected.
