Automated defect detection you can trust
Defects that occur on the surface or on the inside of parts throughout any manufacturing process may have a strong impact on the quality, stability and functionality of the part or the product. This happens, for instance, during the casting process in the automotive industry or during the production of plastic parts in medical technology. As these defects occur in an unpredictable manner, random sample testing is not enough to guarantee high quality of all parts. The solution: 100% inspection or metrology in production – with automated inline CTs of the ZEISS VoluMax family to detect and measure internal defects and structures with high speed.
Inspect large castings at full speed
You have issues meeting cycle times when inspection large castings? ZEISS VoluMax 9 flash is the optimal solution for automated 100% inspection of large parts at high speed. The specially developed detector, which is twice as large, allows you to scan e.g. engine blocks up to 30% faster – 24/7 and without any required cooling in between the scans. High throughput and cycle times of less than 60 seconds are therefore not a problem anymore.
Upgrade to productivity
Detect defects reliably inside components without having to sacrifice maximum throughput? This is possible with the ZEISS VoluMax F1500 thunder computer tomograph, which is the first of its kind to be fully integrated into the production line, allowing the fastest 100% inspection.
Test directly in production
ZEISS inline CTs perform 100% of all inspections on manufactured plastic and light metal components in the production flow – even in harsh production environments. They automatically provide good/bad evaluations so that unusable components can be filtered out. Many different product features can be captured and saved during CT serial inspection.
Wide range of applications
The ZEISS VoluMax systems are suitable for a wide range of applications. For example, they are used to check the dimensional accuracy of plastic parts or to inspect cylinder heads for blowholes and sand residues. The computed tomography systems are used both inline for 100-percent inspection and close to production for inspecting large sample quantities.
Advanced software solutions for fully automated testing in the line
With ZEISS software, you can use the ZEISS VoluMax CT systems efficiently and exploit their full potential. The ZEISS Automated Defect Detection (ZADD) software uses the CAD model to automatically detect, localize, classify and evaluate whether there are any defects within your components that will impair their quality after processing. Defective components are automatically sorted out to save the costs of unnecessary further processing. The ZEISS PiWeb data management software recognizes repeated occurrence of defects, which allows early intervention in the casting process and thus reduces scrap and costs.
Measuring several components in one scan
A significant advantage of computed tomography is that it can replace several costly individual tests. Several smaller components can be recorded in one scan and automatically evaluated with regard to dimensional accuracy. This enables a high throughput in production.
