Measuring Equipment Detects 3D Printing Defects

IMTS 2018: Zeiss’s optical 3D scanners, CT scanners, high-resolution X-ray microscopes and coordinate measuring machines detect 3D printing defects and downstream processing problems.

Zeiss’s optical 3D scanners, CT scanners, high-resolution X-ray microscopes and coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) detect 3D printing defects and downstream processing problems. The company’s CT scanners enable users to check the interior structure of components and identify defects or dimensional errors. Optical and X-ray systems can be used to inspect outer and interior surfaces.

The company’s measuring equipment and scanners enable users to compare measurement data across all manufacturing steps. The equipment is meant to help companies quickly determine if downstream processes, such as heat treatment and removal of components from the build plate, affect a part's final dimensional characteristics.
