The large-scale CT sys­tem 'v|tome|x L450' en­ables the three-di­men­sion­al ex­am­i­na­tion of com­po­nents with com­plex shapes and large struc­tural as­sem­blies.

A different perspective

This CT sys­tem of­fers the pos­si­bil­i­ty of pro­duc­ing a sharp im­age of the in­side of a ma­te­ri­al be­ing ex­am­ined, even at very high mag­ni­fi­ca­tions.

Thanks to high-precision triggering, researchers can examine the interior structure of components and investigate any defects.

X-ray examination of complex metal components

The v|tome|x L450 unit has two tubes; the high-power, 450-kilovolt (mini-focus) X-ray tube enables the irradiation of solid metal components, while the 240-kilovolt (micro-focus) X-ray tube allows scientists to measure and examine component assemblies made of light metals, plastics or fibre composites.

The nanotom is available for detailed, non-destructive examination of the smallest electronic components and material samples. This CT facility makes it possible to generate a sharp image of the interior of the material under examination, even at very high magnifications.
