EXAMINATION, MEASUREMENT AND ASSESSMENT WITH INDUSTRIAL COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY. FOR BETTER PRODUCTS, GREATER EFFICIENCY, MORE PRECISE DATA.
With the use of industrial computed tomography at BJB, we already have better control of the quality and safety of materials, parts and components before the start of series production. We also provide this innovative and cost-efficient service to other companies.
X-ray computed tomography in industrial measurement and testing technology
X-ray computed tomography is familiar from medical diagnosis. But it is also increasingly gaining ground in the industrial sector as a non-destructive analysis technology for the internal and external geometries of any test samples made of plastic, metal, ceramics or other materials.
The system in our CT laboratory provides internal views layer by layer via a 3D volume model and gives detailed information, even for complex assemblies. Each of these details can be closely examined. Weak points and errors can be clearly identified. Have components deformed during product assembly? Have dimensional tolerances not been complied with? Are there voids in injection-moulded plastic components where there definitely should not be?
A CT analysis answers these and many other questions. Precise internal views give designers important information and speed up the product development process considerably. From dimensional measurements to the initial sample test report, this method also shortens the approval process.
From a technical point of view, computed tomography involves the computation of a three-dimensional volume model of the test object from a large number of two-dimensional x-ray images by means of complex mathematical calculations. This volume model consists of small individual volume elements, so-called voxels, which contain relative density information on the test object, thereby providing information on all external and internal geometries.
The following analyses are possible with the volume model of a test specimen.
The menu on the right provides an overview of the various analysis methods available.
