The new simplicity of non-destructive inspection of components

With ZEISS METROTOM 1, ZEISS is introducing an entry-level solution for the non-destructive inspection of parts. This compact computed tomography system delivers precise results, but is nevertheless easy to operate.

Many companies have already come to value the advantages of non-destructive inspection. However, small- and medium-sized companies “often view computed tomography (CT) as being too complex,” said Dr. Petra Schmidt, Head of Field of Business X-ray at ZEISS. With the computed tomography system ZEISS METROTOM 1, ZEISS has now developed an entry-level solution that is even simpler to operate. Simply place the parts to be inspected in the system, press the button, and analyse the measurement results. “That’s how simple it is for users of this new CT system,” said Schmidt.

Another advantage of this new product: “As the device only requires minimal maintenance, the operating costs are low, which means that the device pays for itself even faster,” said Schmidt. The compact machine, which is 175 centimeters wide and 87 centimeters deep and “should fit in every metrology area,” can be used to measure small- to medium-sized parts made of plastic or light metal, such as connectors, plastic caps or aluminum castings”.
