Non-destructive techniques thanks to special equipment

When we commenced operation with our first X-Ray tomograph in 1998, we were convinced of this technology’s future sustainability. Today, we are specialized in the realm of non-destructive testing through the use of various techniques for a broad range of industrial components.

Our material inspectors provide specific knowledge in 3D computer tomography, digital radiography, X-Ray, ultrasound, magnetic particle, eddy current and dye penetrant (fluorescence) testing as well as in endoscopy and videoscopy. With our qualified testing staff at our sites in the Stuttgart and Wolfsburg areas, Detroit & Tuscaloosa (USA) and Slovakia, along with our highly specialized machinery, we are able to examine large amounts of parts quickly, comprehensively, and in great detail.

Utilizing our expertise with 2D X-Ray analyses and computer tomography, as well as by using optical 3D scanners and up-to-date 3D printers, our engineering sector is able to support our clients in the development and prototyping of new products. Target-actual comparisons, measurement technology in 2D and 3D, porosity and cavity analyses, wall thickness analyses or fiber composite analyses are a part of the daily work of our engineers and technicians.

Our services for reliable test results

2D / 2.5D X-Ray imaging

The two-dimensional X-Ray analysis is the fastest and most cost-efficient method of X-Ray imaging.

Computer tomography

High-resolution images, slices and fly-through videos for mechanic and electronic products

3D object scanning

Using the modern optical scanning technology, even complex surface structures, are detected quickly, precisely and cost-effectively…

Eddy current testing

Through the use of eddy current testing, fractures or inhomogeneities propagating from the surface of electric or conducting parts can be detected.

3D printing & rapid prototyping

As more than a supplementary service to our 3D object scanning, we provide the possibility of plastically visualizing the measured results with our 3D printers…

Dye-penetrant technique

In order to detect surface fissures below 1 µm (as fine as a single hair) dye-penetrant techniques are suitable, whether a part is analyzed in our lab or on-site at your location…

Ultrasonic inspection

Non-destructive testing by ultrasonic inspection is based on the emission of high-frequency sound waves. Their characteristic reflection is detected by a search unit and subsequently analyzed using special instruments.

Endoscopy & videoscopy

Highly flexible and inflexible endoscopy. With our smallest endoscopes / videoscopes we can enter new areas which have previously been out of reach.
