The CT USER CONFERENCE 21 Event Program

Day 1

9:00 AM CET (EMEA Slot) and 1:00 PM EST (US Slot):
Keynote (Christof Reinhart, CEO, Volume Graphics)
Join Christof Reinhart, CEO of Volume Graphics, for a keynote speech showcasing current software developments.

9:30 AM CET (EMEA Slot) and 1:30 PM EST (US Slot):
Insights from the Inside: Material Analyses (Rami Abu-Hamad, Technical Solutions Expert, Volume Graphics)
Learn more about the new porosity/inclusion analysis according to Reference Sheet P 203 of the Federation of German Foundry Industry (BDG), which allows you to perform a 3D evaluation regarding the most critical defect parameters within functional areas of a cast part. After that, we'll introduce the new integrated reporting tool, which makes it easy to create, edit, and view reports as they appear in the final PDF file. 

10:00 AM CET (EMEA Slot) and 2:00 PM EST (US Slot):
Meet the Experts: Material Analyses (Volume Graphics)
We invite you to directly ask our experts your questions about material analysis with Volume Graphics software. 

11:00 AM CET (EMEA Slot) and 3:00 PM EST (US Slot):
From Design to Reality—Advanced Compensation & “As Manufactured” Part Performance in AM (Johannes Mann,  Manager Global Business Development, Volume Graphics + Mathieu Pérennou, Global Business Development Director, Additive Manufacturing, Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence)
Additive manufacturing disrupts the world of design and production. To produce parts first time right, engineers have to consider the full value chain from part specification to the finished product. Therefore, design, design validation, process planning, and manufacturing preparation need to hand over results seamlessly in one common quality description. In their presentation, Mathieu Perennou and Johannes Mann will demonstrate how you can connect Hexagon software tools to optimize the process from part and associated manufacturing process design to simulation and production preparation by utilizing advanced geometry compensation and GD&T metrology on virtual parts, so-called digital twins. Finally, you will learn how real parts can be brought back to the virtual environment to perform an “as-manufactured” performance simulation to ensure the actual part meets the targeted performance criteria. 

11:30 AM CET (EMEA Slot) and 3:30 PM EST (US Slot):
How Computed Tomography Helps to Bring AM Satellite Components to Space (Carlos Galleguillos, Material and Processes Engineer, CATEC , Advanced Center for Aerospace Technologies) 
Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF) is used to produce high quality parts for a variety of industries. For space applications it is used to produce e.g., individual satellite brackets. In this presentation it is shown how CT analyses using VGSTUDIO can help in the development process, for certification procedures, and quality inspection.

 

Day 2

9:00 AM CET (EMEA Slot) and 1:00 PM EST (US Slot):
A VG Christmas Tale (Annina Luck, Technical Trainer, Volume Graphics)
A VG Christmas Tale Holiday season is just around the corner, and you need some inspiration to get into the holiday spirit? Watch our VG Christmas Elves create festive decorations using nothing but our well-known example data sets and creative use of segmentation. Of course, we will polish everything to the finest sheen with some beautiful rendering. And so 'twas the night before Christmas…

9:30 AM CET (EMEA Slot) and 1:30 PM EST (US Slot):
Insights from the Inside: Geometry Analyses (Johannes Gromes, Technical Solutions Expert, Volume Graphics)
Learn more about the new possibilities for the simplified creation and adjustment of freeform surfaces and profile tolerances on a CAD model and the creation of datum systems. We will also discuss the topic of datum systems in general. This is followed by the evaluation and visualization of profile tolerances and tolerances in general according to ISO 1101 on the volume.

11:30 AM CET (EMEA Slot) and 3:30 PM EST (US Slot):
Insights into Meteorites Structure (Tomas Zikmund, Central European Institute of Technology, Brno University of Technology, Czech Republic)
The utilization of X-ray computed tomography for geology objects is very widespread, thanks to its non-destructive nature and 3D imaging capabilities. It is even more important for a sample like a meteorite which is so valuable that it cannot be cut open for standard microscopic analysis. The contribution of CT in the quantification process is demonstrated on selected meteorites that were found in Central Europe in 2014. VGSTUDIO MAX played a critical role in the reconstruction of internal parts, their 3D visualization, and the classification of meteorites. It was also possible to determine bulk density, to precisely digitize their shape, and to examine the structural homogeneity using advanced Volume Graphics tools such as porosity detection, morphological operations, and advanced visualization techniques.
