New computer tomograph for non-destructive testing

Even the delivery of the device was spectacular: A crane was used to transport the nearly four-ton system to the second floor of the Training Center for Quality (TZQ). The new CT system is now available for various non-destructive testing applications.

SKZ expands its equipment portfolio with a high-resolution computer tomograph

SKZ's computed tomography (CT) scanners can be used both for publicly funded research projects and for contract analysis for customers. They are also used for training purposes in the field of non-destructive testing.

Applications range from the detection of internal defects, to the analysis of fiber-filled and foamed plastic parts, to the recording and comparison of geometric features. Due to the very high resolution, down to the single-digit micrometer range, and the direct imaging, the CT system is also suitable for referencing other non-destructive testing methods.

Equipped with a transmission X-ray tube capable of accelerating voltages up to 190 kV, the new CT system FF20 from Comet Yxlon is capable of penetrating and accurately imaging various plastics as well as thin metal layers. The scanner's spacious inspection chamber can accommodate samples up to 280 mm in diameter and 430 mm in height.

SKZ invites companies to take advantage of computed tomography. The device's X-ray-based measuring process is direct imaging and offers the possibility of gaining comprehensive insights into the interior of various components. The knowledge gained in this way can make a decisive contribution to the identification of process errors and thus support quality assurance.
