Traditionally, CT scanning of assemblies made from two materials such as metal and plastic is unsuited to quality control (QC) in a production environment. The Industrial Metrology Business Unit of Nikon Corporation has introduced a new reconstruction algorithm allowing scanning times to be reduced by typically 10-fold, making first article inspection a possibility, alongside production line integration on the shop floor for Quality 4.0.
For maximum effectiveness in identifying internal as well as external dimensions, defects, and assembly issues, we want the best image quality delivered fast. Time is critical to achieve results close to real-time so that production line parameters may be optimised as quickly as possible. The result: zero-defect products every time.
In assemblies of two materials, speed and image quality are usually conflicting requirements. This is because a long scan time is required to generate datasets that are sufficiently clear to be processed, which is contrary to the requirements for real-time inspection. Assemblies of two materials often lead to long scan times and severe image artefacts – but not with the latest X-ray CT solutions from Nikon thanks to our new reconstruction technique, which we will present to you .
In this webinar, you will learn about why dual material samples are problematic to achieve Quality 4.0 and new solutions to the problems.
