Type of inspection:
Comprehensive inspection of an aluminium wheel carrier with complex bionic structure.
Additive manufacturing requires carefully set process parameters that are optimised in iterative steps during the product development process. Fast and comprehensive feedback on product quality is of paramount importance for shortening the development phase.
Possible consequences of undetected defects:
Missing and insufficiently validated process quality can result in high reject rates. Especially with regard to safety-relevant parts of the chassis, additional risks arise that can lead to component failure and create the risk of an accident.
Advantages of CT inspection:
- Shortened development cycles
- Addressing risks identified by FMEA
- Reduction of required expensive prototypes through non-destructive testing for a variety of features.
