True|position / Ruby|plate

Measuring with specified VDI 2630 accuracy at all positions  

Exclusively available in Waygate Technologies' Phoenix V|tome|x premium performance CT system family, True|position and Easy|calib technology expand the measurement positions with specified accuracy to all positions which can be verified with the innovative patented Ruby|plate calibration phantom.

3D CT metrology starts here

3D Computed Tomography metrology starts here 

Thanks to the patented Ruby|plate calibration phantom with its calibration uncertainty of less than 1 micrometer, even at a maximum probing length of 130 mm, not only a high measurement accuracy of up to SD ≤ (3.8 + L/100 mm) µm for both positions referring to VDI 2630-1.3 guideline can be specified, but also remarkable SD ≤ (5.5+ L/50 mm) µm for all other positions besides the VDI positions can be reached within the V|tome|x M premium CT scanner. Additionally, by applying the fully automated Easy|calib, the VDI specification SD ≤ (3.8 + L/100 mm) µm can be met at any position with just a few minutes of calibrating. 

Due to highly automated routines, the new Ruby|plate calibration phantom and True|positions' compensation of remaining mechanical positioning uncertainties as well as correction of thermal effects by using temperature sensors, these proprietary innovations bring CT metrology workflows and precision to a new performance level. 

True|position / Ruby|plate Features
Largest Ruby|plate calibration phantom 

To measure large, complex objects, Waygate Technologies also offers the Ruby|plate 240 calibration phantom for its Phoenix V|tome|x C450, enabling users to perform VDI 2630 compliant precision metrology with specification of SD ≤ (15 ± L/50 mm) µm

Technical Specifications


Why is system calibration with applying Ruby|plate so much faster than other verification routines?

The patented Ruby|plate allows a 3x faster automated verification of the specified measurement accuracy (SD) according to VDI 2630 1.3 (compared to current technology): All directions and length required by the guideline are covered by its ruby spheres alignment on ceramic plate in just one scan.

The VDI 2630 standard defines only 2 verified positions – How can you offer CT metrology with specified accuracy for any reachable position within your CT cabinet?

Waygate Technologies´ innovative metrology features such as True|position or Easy|calib allow users to quickly and easily determine the systems´ geometry at any point, ensuring the ability to automatically correct any deviations and maintain conformance with the VDI 2630 standard. For our premium metrology CT scanner Phoenix V|tome|x M, applying those features means to reach SD ≤ (3.8 ± L/100 mm) μm not only at both VDI positions, but at any position. For our customers combination of maximum flexibility, reliability and precision is a big benefit.

How long does a system recalibration take?

By scanning the Ruby|plate phantom and applying our fully automated validation processes, our customers themselves are able to specify their systems´ measurement uncertainties in less than 10 minutes.

Is the measurement precision depending on the system size?

Not as much as you might expect: Even our granite-based and air conditioned large walk-in cabinet Phoenix V|tome|x L300 and V|tome|x L450 CT systems reach with their microfocus X-ray tubes a remarkable precision of SD ≤ (6.8 ± L/100 mm) µm at both VDI 2630 positions and, after applying Easy|calib, at any position.

Do you have also reliable metrology solutions for larger, higher absorbing samples?

Yes, our Ruby|plate 240 calibration phantom is the largest of its kind on the market, enabling users of our 450 kV minifocus Phoenix V|tome|x C450 CT scanner to scan e.g. light metal castings with a precision specification of SD ≤ (15 ± L/50 mm) µm at both VDI 2630 positions and, after applying Easy|calib, at any position.

Is it possible to upgrade my Phoenix V|tome|x CT scanner with metrology 2.0 capability?

Yes, when ordering your system, you do not need to order the Metrology|edition configuration yet. All actual and most Phoenix V|tome|x M, C and L systems built in the past years can later be upgraded for higher metrology performance.
