Light metal casting
Type of inspection:
Pore analysis of a cylinder head
In order to achieve the highest possible ranges as well as low emissions, lightweight construction continues to be a primary goal in vehicle construction, regardless of the type of drive. Light metal casting is characterised by its ability to produce complex parts with a high degree of automation and recyclability. However, high technological demands are placed on the components, including mechanical load-bearing capacity under more complex stresses and simultaneous mass reduction.
A cylinder with poor quality leads to damage to the cooling system and ultimately to engine failure.
Advantages of a CT inspection:
- Visualisation of pores in the cylinder head and colour classification of the pores according to their volume is possible.
- The exact position of each pore and thus the potential risk it poses can be determined.
