(firmenpresse) - For small plastic components and parts with low density, the new Desktop CT exaCT XS is now available. Based on its space-saving design and low weight, exaCT XS can be placed on any desk without difficulty. With the dimensions 600 mm x 520 mm x 430 mm, it is the smallest industrial CT scanner in its class. With the exaCT XS, WENZEL enters a new price segment for industrial CT.
Intuitive user interface provides quick results The exaCT XS was introduced to the market at EMO in Hannover from 19th to 24th September 2011. The exaCT XS is used for dimensional measurement and testing technology where 3D data of complex inner structures are required.
The innovative system design is evident in the novel concept of operation. The system is operated using an integrated touch-screen display. There is no need to be a computed tomography specialist to operate the exaCT XS. Intuitive user guidance allows excellent measurements to be generated after a short training period. The exaCT XS also thinks: Measurement parameters are automatically optimised by the system.
Comprehensive evaluations based on a single measurement The CT control unit and reconstruction software ensure high precision and high quality results. The entire image processing chain and 3D reconstruction are carried out with WENZEL software. This allows the components to be optimised and finely geared to one another, thus achieving the high quality standards. The exaCT Control data acquisition software allows optimised control of the computer tomograph and the exaCT Volume reconstruction software ensures the precise calculation of volume data.
The evaluation software of the exaCT XS has a direct link to the proven software products Metrosoft QUARTIS and PointMaster from WENZEL. After a single CT-Scan material testing, nominal to actual comparison, reverse engineering and compensation of shrinkage and distortion can quickly be evaluated.
Safety is an essential part of the exaCT XS
The new exaCT XS has a type-approval certificate under German law. The fully protected device is based on the strict legal requirements of the German X-ray Directive and DIN 54113. Its use is non-hazardous for the operator. There is also no danger from components that have been exposed to X-ray. The type-approval certificate under German law eliminates the authorization process in Germany. This ensures both a quick startup and flexible modification of the installation site.
All components of the exaCT XS are integrated in one unit. This ensures a very small footprint. The stable and maintenance-free X-ray source in combination with the industrial detector from own production and the high precision rotary table provide an excellent basis for metrological applications. All that is needed for operation is space on the desk and an electrical outlet. The data is exchanged via a fast network connection.
The excellent price-performance ratio of exaCT XS makes computed tomography affordable even for small companies.
