3D CT Scanner
Inspect and measure large samples with high precision and througput

The Phoenix V|tome|x C is a high performance compact industrial 450 kV minifocus CT system for inspection and 3D metrology of a wide applications range such as large light metal castings, turbine blades, AM parts etc.

Waygate Technologies’ patented Scatter|correct technology automatically removes most scatter artifacts from the CT volume. This technological advancement provides image quality like that achieved with conventional fan-beam scanning but at speeds up to 100 times faster.

Industrial CT Inspection of large, high absorbing samples starts here

Our Phoenix V|tome|x C is a compact 450 kV CT system with the largest possible scan volume and usable specimen weight especially for production and production-related areas such as production lines and quality assurance laboratories in battery manufacturing, in foundries and in aerospace – a flexible combination of semi-automated, non-destructive inspection and VDI 2630-1.3 specified 3D metrology.

The Phoenix V|tome|x C comes standard with our exclusive 4 MP Dynamic 41|200 next-generation photodiode design industrial X-ray detector. It provides 10x increased sensitivity relative to the state of the art 200 µm pixel size DXR detectors producing 2-3x cycle time increase without image quality impact, making inspections and measurements more efficient and productive. Compared to 16-bit detectors, the optimized 14-bit technology offers the highest efficiency with a dynamic range of 10000:1 and thus saves time in use and also generates less noise in the image. As a premium option, the 100 µm / 16 MP Dynamic 41|100 detector provides a 2x resolution increase without cycle time impact. Detection of 2x smaller defects without an increase of geometric magnification allows for the imaging of large objects at a higher resolution.

Phoenix V|tome|x C450 Features
Scatter|correct technology

Get unprecedented low artifact precision up to 100 times faster than with a comparable quality fan beam CT

Dynamic 41 detector technology

Double CT resolution at the same speed, or double throughput at the same quality level as 200 µm pitch DXR detectors. Compared to 16-bit detectors, the optimized 14-bit technology offers the highest efficiency with a dynamic range of 10000:1 and thus saves time in use and also generates less noise in the image

Helix|CT

Scan with improved image quality to increase probability of detection (POD) with efficiency and ease

Offset|CT

Scan even larger parts with up to ~70% larger scanning volume

Multi|bhc

The Multi|bhc tool corrects streaking artifacts which typically occur as multiple dark streaking bands positioned between dense areas in multi-material samples

One-button|CT automation

Scan with the click of a button for high throughputs and efficiency  

Quick|pick manipulator

The Quick|pick manipulator of the high-speed configuration HS even allows fully automated CT evaluation of large batches, e.g. to scan up to 25 turbine blades without any operator action within approx. 2 hrs. The system offers industry-leading sample size, flexibility, and maximum penetration power for high absorbing samples at 450 kV

 

3D Speed|ADR

Proprietary speed-optimized 3D volume analysis and defect detection for industrial mass production process control

Metrology|edition

The system guarantees a measurement accuracy of SD ≤ (15 ± L/50 mm) µm according to VDI/VDE 2630-1.3 for reliable revalidation of the system performance and reproducible measurement applications.The

Ruby|plate 240 calibration phantom and the compensation of thermal drift effects based on the use of temperature sensors enable automated measurement sequences and precision to a new level of performance for even larger parts.

This enables the improved VDI 2630 compliant accuracy specification and three times faster performance verification of multiple positions - reliably and reproducibly:

  • Nominal-actual CAD comparison
  • Dimensional measurements / wall thickness analysis
  • Reverse Engineering / Tool Compensation
FAQs
What software is available for the V|tome|x C?

Phoenix Datos|x 3D computed tomography acquisition and reconstruction software. Optional 3D evaluation softwarepackages available upon request for 3D metrology, failure analysis, and structural analysis with lowest scatter artifacts.

Does the system allow automated batch CT?

Yes, the Quick|pick manipulator of the high-speed configuration HS allows fully automated CT evaluation of large batches, e.g. to scan up to 25 turbine blades without any operator action within approx. 2 hrs

What type of detector does the V|tome|x C use?

The V|tome|x C from Waygate technologies uses a temperature-stabilized Dynamic 41|200p+ large area detector with superior image and result quality, 410 x 410 mm (16” x 16”), 200 µm pixel size, 2036 x 2036 pixels (4 MP), extremely high dynamic range > 10000:1.  

Alternatively the Dynamic 41|100 with the same size and dynamic range but with 100 µm pixel size resulting in 16 MP can be used. 

If necessary optionally detectors a LDA detector package („fan”: 16 bit Linear Detector Array with 820 mm sensitive width, 2050 pixels, 400 µm pitch) is available also in combination with a Dynamic 41 detector.

What is the maximum part dimension and weight I can inspect?

Scans are possible up to a sample dimension of Ø 500 mm x 1000 mm (max. scan diameter ~500 mm) and 100 kg (for HS version: 270 x 310 mm / up to 10 kg rotation unit and  100 x 125 mm / up to 3 kg Quick|pick gripper), depending on the application.

What type of radiation safety does the V|tome|x C have?

The V|tome|x C employs a radiation safety cabinet for full protective installation without type approval according to German StrSchV/StrSchG and in compliance with French NFC 74 100 and US Performance Standard 21 CFR Subchapter J. For operation, other official licenses may be necessary.
