In short

Your check-up for qualified assembly: The component is quickly checked for proper assembly.

"The epitome of cost-conscious quality assurance, our inspection is an effective and cost-conscious way to analyze defects non-destructively."

This is how it works

Computed tomography can be used to reliably check the correct assembly of complex components. Within a few minutes, components are completely captured without restriction and destruction by means of high-performance X-rays. The detailed representation of the assembly inspection is carried out with the aid of precise and virtual 2D X-ray images, 2D sections or 3D representations. Thus, irregularities in the assembly can be quickly and clearly detected. 

In practice

If a problem occurs, your entire production batch could be affected. This is where our computed tomography comes into play, quickly pinpointing the cause. In this way, screws, valves, ball heads, components with seals or functional gaps, and much more can be checked to ensure that they are exactly in place. Similarly, molded components with or without electronics, ceramics or complex mechanics can be inspected.

Our process is suitable for all industrial sectors: from precision mechanics, automotive, mechanical engineering, medical technology to electrical engineering.

With our solution, you have full control: find out whether the position of individual components is consistent with each other, to what extent parts have been incorrectly assembled or seals have been damaged in the process. Malfunctions or collisions can be detected on the spot, which would be impossible to detect when cut open or after disassembly. This form of quality control sets completely new standards.
