EMPIR AdvanCT project at CONTROL Virtual Trade Fair

4 to 6 May 2021

EMPIR project Advanced Computed Tomography for dimensional and surface measurements in industry (17IND08, AdvanCT) will be represented at the CONTROL Virtual Trade Fair.  

Industrial computed tomography (CT) is increasingly finding its way into coordinate metrology. Previously established primarily in medicine and non-destructive testing, this technique can be used to measure both the external and internal geometric features of a component, such as cavities, without contact and without destroying the object under investigation. This offers great opportunities for the development and quality control of products, but measurements still take a long time and are often too inaccurate. Together with European research partners in the Multifunctional ultrafast microprobes for on-the-machine measurements (17IND05, AdvanCT)  project, methods which significantly improve computed tomographic measurements in industry have been developed, above all making them faster and more accurate.

Project results, animation and a flyer will be available on the EMPIR project consortium trade stand  from 4 May.
