Volume Graphics at Formnext 2021

Quality Control in Additive Manufacturing

Get Full Control from Lab to Fab

Stop By the Hexagon Booth in Hall 12.0, Booth E69 for a Live Demo during Formnext 2021

Formnext 2021: November 16–19, 2021, Frankfurt am Main, Germany

When you inspect safety-relevant components, every little detail counts. From powder to printed part, from lab to fab—Volume Graphics software gives you the insights to constantly push the quality boundaries of your additively manufactured parts and establish efficient workflows. The software runs on data provided by the latest CT technology. 

Volume Graphics software enables you to identify the most important 3D printing defects, whether from the raw material or the post-processed end product. No matter how complex the shape might be, Volume Graphics enables your metrology department to sign off on processes and accurately inspect your 3D-printed parts.

Why CT?

The Most Reliable Technology for 3D Inspection

Additively manufactured products need to be thoroughly inspected to be certified for high-risk use cases. Computed tomography (CT) is the most reliable technology for identifying 3D printing defects and enabling the best possible 3D printing quality. 

Because CT reconstruction produces a complete representation of a component in 3D from 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, for example, 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.
