3D X-Ray Measurements for Quality Assurance ZEISS METROTOM

High Resolution

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.

Now available: See more, measure more - thanks to greater resolution

  • Very high resolution for measuring components with narrow tolerances or small defects
  • High-performance system for irradiating thicker and multi-material parts
  • Faster scanning thanks to the shorter working distance and outstanding performance

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 with easy machine software

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 NEO insights you can evaluate the CT data and with ZEISS PiWeb, they can be merged quickly in a single measurement report.
