Component Qualification and Tool Error Correction in Light Metal and Plastic Injection Moulding: The Benefits of Highly Automated 3D Computed Tomography

S. Hachtel, H.-P. Duwe, O. Brunke

In addition to todays widespread use of high-resolution computed tomography (CT) in quality control, this technologys continued development has taken a giant leap forward and is now being used in measuring procedures. 3D metrology using CT allows plastic and light metal components to be measured non-destructively, which, until recently, were not able to be inspected and measured using current methods due to their complex internal structures. This article provides an overview of the current situation regarding CT technology and 3D metrology software. It also provides concrete examples from the automotive industry to describe the time-and-cost benefits that result from using largely automated CT measuring routines that are carried out as part of component qualification and tool and mould correction.
