Development and application of innovative sensor technologies

focussing amongst others on fast, 3D testing, 3D data evaluation and 3D visualization

Components and Assemblies

The Components and Assemblies department is engaged in the development and application of innovative nondestructive testing solutions with an emphasis on rapid, automated 3D inspections, data analysis and visualization (tomography-based), as well as in the fusion of data generated by different inspection methods and modes of operation (ultrasound/acoustic, thermography, x-ray CT).

The department uses the available platform technology to rapidly transfer custom sensor and measurement and test technologies, especially software, into industrial test environments and applications with the aim of addressing complex issues. The flexible and certified transfer of innovative developments is carried out with an accredited lab that complies with DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025.

We offer fully tested and validated solutions that ensure the efficient production and reliable utilization of quality components.
