3D X-Ray Measurements for Quality Assurance ZEISS METROTOM

NEW:
METROTOM 1500
3rd Generation

Industrial Computed Tomography with ZEISS METROTOM

With a industrial computed tomography system from ZEISS, you can successfully perform measuring and inspection jobs yourself with only one X-ray scan. The standard acceptance test, the precision engineering and the sophisticated calibration process ensure the traceability of the system. Linear guideways and a rotary table meet customers' highest demands for precision.

New ZEISS METROTOM 1500 in its third generation

Future-proof quality control – today

The ZEISS METROTOM family has been offering reliable CT technology for quality control for twelve years. The third generation of the computed tomography (CT) system ZEISS METROTOM 1500 provides the best proof that advanced and reliable X-ray technology is no longer a vision of the future. You can future-proof your quality control – today.

ZEISS METROTOM
Measure and inspect larger parts

The third generation of ZEISS METROTOM 1500 allows measurements of larger parts, thanks to an extended measuring volume.

More comfortable and safe operation

The front door, which allows the operator to enter the system and use it as a service access point, makes loading of larger and heavier components more convenient. This allows the user to perform CT measurements easily, safely, and accurately.
 

Compact footprint

For transport, installation, maintenance or the consumed space in the customer's lab -– the smaller the system, the better. The design of the cabin of ZEISS' largest industrial CT system was entirely devoted to the efficient use of space.

In the third generation, a new 3k detector generates 3D volume data sets with higher resolution, i.e. more voxels permitting the detection of smaller defects.

Scan faster.

The scan time can be reduced by up to 75% through different operation modes of the detector, while achiving a comparable voxel size as with a 2k detector.

Measuring and inspecting complete components

The ZEISS METROTOM is an industrial computed tomography system for measuring and inspecting complete components made of plastic or light metal. With traditional measuring technology, hidden structures can only be inspected after the time- and cost-consuming process of destroying the component layer-by-layer.

Measure a lot of characteristics easily and precisely

With ZEISS METROTOM computed tomography system, numerous component characteristics are scanned in one run. The resulting measurements are precise and traceable. Unlike contact measuring methods, ZEISS METROTOM is significantly faster when capturing numerous measuring points.

Intuitive handling

Following a short training course on how to use the ZEISS METROTOM OS machine software, the operator is able to tomograph components and look into the interior of the component. With ZEISS CALYPSO and GOM Volume Inspect you can evaluate the CT data. The last mentioned allows you not only to solve measurement tasks but also to carry out defect analyses. With ZEISS PiWeb, the results can be merged quickly in a single measurement report.

Comprehensive CT data analysis in 3D

The easy-to-use and even for beginners suitable analysis software GOM Volume Inspect allows complete CT data analysis in 3D. Geometries, shrinkage holes or internal structures and assemblies can be analysed precisely. Even the smallest defects become visible through individual sectional images and can be automatically evaluated according to various criteria. You can also load volume data of several components into a project, perform a trend analysis and compare the analysis with CAD data. In this way, the quality of your component can be exactly determined and documented - and all this in just one software.

Available options

Automated filter changer

Manual filter pre-settings to scan a wide variety of parts with different materials and material compositions are no longer necessary thanks to the automatic filter changer. In this way, you can achieve reliable results even faster.

ZEISS FixAssist CT

With ZEISS FixAssist CT, you can reduce machine downtimes by up to 80%. Simply position the workpiece on the pallet outside the machine before measurement, place the pre-adjusted part in the computer tomography system and start scanning immediately.

ZEISS Tomostage

You would like to capture several parts in one scan? This is possible with the carbon fiber tower specially developed for CT applications. In this way, the measuring times per part can be drastically reduced – for increased throughput.
