Exact Metrology Now Leases ZEISS Metrotom 1 CT Scanner

Performing complex measurement and inspection tasks in one compact system

Published: Tuesday, February 28, 2023 - 12:01

(Exact Metrology: Cincinnati, OH; and ZEISS: Hebron, KY) -- Exact Metrology, a division of In-Place Machining, a comprehensive 3D metrology service provider, and a hardware sales company, is leasing the ZEISS METROTOM 1 CT scanner. The METROTOM 1 allows users to measure and inspect hidden defects and internal structures that can’t be detected with tactile measuring systems.

The CT system offers several advantages, including easy handling, precise measurements, small footprint, and fast return on investment. Installation is a simple process with little training required. With the ability to measure and evaluate complete parts, accurate nominal/actual comparisons, dimensional checks, and wall-thickness analysis can be performed. The compact CT system fits into any metrology lab, allowing users to carry out in-house metrology measurements and quality assurance without external measuring services. Besides low acquisition costs, the cost of ownership is also kept low, thanks to system components; ZEISS METROTOM 1 requires maintenance just once a year.

The ZEISS METROTOM 1 CT system now makes reliable X-ray technology and nondestructive quality assurance available to everyone. Whether it’s medium or small parts, plastic, or light metal, the scanner can inspect a variety of parts such as connectors, plastic caps, aluminum parts, and more.

The scanner is equipped with the operation and inspection software GOM Volume Inspect, which combines all stages of the CT process, from scan setup and reconstruction to data evaluation and reporting. Geometries, shrinkage holes, or internal structures and assembly situations can be evaluated precisely. With just one software, users can load volume data from several components into a project, perform a trend analysis, compare the captured 3D data with the CAD model, and more.

Call Exact Metrology at (866) 722-2600 or visit the company’s contact page to speak to a metrology specialist and find out how to incorporate this CT technology.
