The exaCT® U. The new generation of industrial computed tomography
The exaCT U can be used universally and is designed in such a way that each customer can tailor his individual system with the appropriate X-ray source and detector. Sources of 135 – 450 kV and services for all requirements are configurable in the mobile variant of the machine.
Radiation sources whose performance would not make sense in a transportable CT system are offered as stationary systems based on the basic device and they achieve unprecedented power and flexibility. Due to its very large measuring volume of 700 mm in height and 300 mm in diameter, the exaCT U allows the measurement and testing of large components with higher densities.
The innovative system design offers a new operating concept and an integrated workspace. Due to the intuitive user interface, precise measurement results can be generated after a short training period. The exaCT U is also smart as the system automatically optimizes the measurement parameters.
The CT control and reconstruction software is specially developed by WENZEL Volumetrik for industrial applications to ensure high precision and fast scanning times. The individual components are optimized and fine-tuned to each other, thus achieving the highest quality standard. The data acquisition software ensures the optimized control of the computer tomography with the reconstruction software guaranteeing the exact calculation of the volume data.
The evaluation software of the exaCT U has a direct link to the proven WENZEL software products, Metrosoft QUARTIS and exaCT Analysis. The system offers numerous evaluation possibilities. On the basis of a single measurement, materials testing, nominal-actual comparisons against a master component or CAD data, reverse engineering and compensation of shrinkage and warping are possible within a very short time.
In its performance class, the exaCT U is one of the most compact computer tomography systems on the market. With four independent traversing axes, it offers an impressive resolution (4000 x 4000 pixels). Hardware and software offer the possibility of automated measurement integrated into the production line and provides the answers to questions posed by the Industry 4.0 concepts.
The decision has been made: The readers of inspect and messtec drives Automation have voted throughout the summer on who should receive the coveted inspect awards 2018 in the categories Vision, Control and Automation. The following companies and products were selected:
1st place in the Control category: Wenzel Group – Compact CT exaCT U
The ceremonial handover of the winner’s cups to the three “Winners” will took place on 28 November at the SPS IPC Drives in Nuremberg.
