Authentication of Ancient Ceramics

150 150 XRAY-LAB | Industrial X-ray analysis & 3D computed tomography (CT)

The benefits of industrial computed tomography for the study and authentication of ancient ceramics Peter Graßmann, art historian, Villingen-Schwenningen / XRAY-LAB For private collectors as well as for museums, the high number of counterfeits of antique objects is a great challenge. Counterfeiting has been going on since there was a market: Michelangelo has already been able to prove the production…

Case Study #1: Void analysis by X-Ray computed tomography in a soldered seam

662 497 XRAY-LAB | Industrial X-ray analysis & 3D computed tomography (CT)

The aim of this study is to present an exemplary application of non-destructive X-Ray CT imaging for assessing the quality of a soldered seam. When several components are being brazed together– no matter which material or in which area of use – one major issue is the stability and quality of the soldered seam. In our present example aluminum sheets…

Using computer tomography (CT) for inspection of lightweight structures or composite materials

1024 735 XRAY-LAB | Industrial X-ray analysis & 3D computed tomography (CT)

In an age where legal requirements mandate ever lower CO2 emissions, manufacturing is increasingly demanding lighter than expected vehicles to meet both emission standards and consumer needs. This requires us to reconsider the choice of materials and manufacturing processes other than traditional means. Lightweight construction is the theme being discussed in manufacturing sectors domestically and abroad. Composite materials which were…

We are issued in Quality Magazine with an case study of computer tomography (CT)

1024 720 XRAY-LAB | Industrial X-ray analysis & 3D computed tomography (CT)

Quality shines through – Cutting edge x-ray analysis and computer tomography (CT) In recent years, X-ray computed tomography (CT) has been established as an inspection technique in a broad range of industry branches. The ability of a non-destructive inspection tremendously supports the quality of solid materials or industrial products, such as automotive parts, by providing comprehensive information about shape, dimensions,…
