Just as every millisecond in a pit stop counts in a race, every little detail counts when inspecting safety-relevant components. Volume Graphics is your pit crew. From mold to casted part, from part design to inspection— Volume Graphics software gives you the insights to constantly push the quality boundaries of your cast parts and establish efficient workflows. The software runs on data provided by the latest computed tomography (CT) technology.
Volume Graphics software enables you to identify the most important casting defects, whether caused by the mold or the casting process—quickly, easily, and with incredible accuracy. No matter how complex the shape might be, Volume Graphics allows you to sign off on processes and accurately inspect your cast parts.
Follow Renault F1 Team’s lead and rely on Volume Graphics’ inspection expertise: As part of a multi-year agreement, Volume Graphics is proud to support Renault F1 Team. Since 2016, Renault F1 Team has used VGSTUDIO MAX to analyze and visualize CT data. CT and Volume Graphics have since then contributed to a significant increase in the analysis capabilities of Renault F1 Team’s test laboratory.
Volume Graphics software is your tool for identifying the most important casting defects such as porosity, inclusions, shrinkage, and warpage. Volume Graphics offers the tools necessary for CT-based quality assurance across the life cycle of cast components, from designing the part to automatically inspecting it: geometric dimensioning and tolerancing, mold cavity correction, wall thickness analysis, nominal/actual comparison, defect detection, virtual machining, and stress simulation.
Computed tomography (CT) data provides a comprehensive view of the cast part because of its ability to accurately represent both surfaces and inner structures. In combination with VGSTUDIO MAX, CT offers the unique possibility of getting a full understanding of a part’s quality.
Because CT reconstruction produces a complete representation of a component in 3D based on a large number of 2D X-ray images, CT allows the user to draw conclusions on the external and internal structures of a component and its material properties. Thus, CT can answer more complex questions than tactile or optical inspection methods.
With its fully integrated CT reconstruction function, Volume Graphics offers a seamless connection to the comprehensive analysis and measurement functions of its software.
Moreover, the software works equally well with different CT systems from different manufacturers. Most major CT system providers sell Volume Graphics software together with their hardware. In addition, we rely on a worldwide network of distributors to serve our customers around the globe.
