Industrial CT Scanners

Your Choice for Compact Precision Parts

METROTOM 800 is tailored to the requirements of the injection molding industry. It meets all the requirements of mid-sized companies in the plastic, composite material and ceramic part industry. It also features an attractive price/performance ratio.

Minimal system maintenance costs and maximum availability were decisive during the development of METROTOM 800. This was achieved through the use of maintenance-free micro-focus X-ray tube technology. Extremely small focal points enable razor-sharp projection images on the detector – the foundation for high measuring accuracy. The METROTOM 800 detector delivers almost three million pixels for very high detail recognition.

Continuously adjustable travel mechanism

Inside the cylinder-shaped measuring range, parts can be placed in any position in the beam path via a continuously adjustable travel mechanism. The detector is always optimally illuminated with the part projection. Together with the vertical adjustment, this function allows you to enlarge specific areas of the parts to measure details in relation to the entire part.

Through the use of polymer concrete for the enclosure, the use of lead can be largely avoided. Here, Carl Zeiss demonstrates how the utilization of modern materials can provide maximum protection of employees, system operators and the environment – while implementing perfect measuring technology, ergonomic excellence and a corresponding design.

The Ideal Machine for a Wide Range of Parts

METROTOM 1500 – the ideal, CT-based coordinate measuring machine for a wide variety of applications regarding the size and material density.

METROTOM 1500 was specially developed for a wide performance range to meet the different requirements encountered in internal or external measuring and qualification labs on a daily basis. Parts made of plastic, ceramics or composite materials, as well as magnesium, aluminum and steel can be dimensionally measured and highly efficiently evaluated.

Always ideal detail resolution and measuring accuracy

The ideal part magnification is selected for each application through the gradual positioning of the part between the X-ray source and the detector. The user always receives optimal detail resolution and measuring accuracy. METROTOM 1500 can also be equipped with a higher-resolution detector to make even finer part structures visible.

You can enlarge the detailed view if very small features on a large workpiece need to be measured with high accuracy. This is then evaluated in reference to the entire part. This function is enabled through the precise positioning of the part in different directions using the vertically adjustable rotary table.

Long service life thanks to X-ray tube technology

The open X-ray tube technology used enables a practically unlimited system service life and turns METROTOM 1500 into a sustained economical investment. With its radiation protective enclosure, METROTOM 1500 meets the requirements of a full-protection machine. The system can thus be set up practically anywhere. There is no risk of radiation exposure for the environment or the operator. The machine door is motorized. METROTOM 1500 can also be loaded by a robot using an external controller.

Computed tomography (CT) provides a unique, non-destructive and three-dimensional view into inspection items, for example the detection of porosities, comparisons to CAD data, geometric measurement and reverse engineering.
