Updates in 3.3 include multi-material dimensioning, native Q-DAS support, OCR-based automation, and high-quality volume meshing
Volume Graphics has announced the latest generation of its software solutions for non-destructive quality assurance with industrial computed tomography (CT): Version 3.3 of VGSTUDIO MAX, VGSTUDIO, VGMETROLOGY, and VGinLINE.
The company is the leading provider of industrial CT software, according to management consultants Frost & Sullivan (basis: "2018 Global Industrial CT Software Market Leadership Award"). Volume Graphics’ VGSTUDIO MAX software is used for the analysis and visualization of industrial computed tomography (CT) data and covers all requirements related to metrology, defect detection and assessment, material properties, and simulation.
Using the new version, customers can determine the surfaces of multi-material components, export measurement and analysis results to store them centrally in quality management software, automate inspection processes more flexibly based on text recognition, and translate real CT data into volume meshes for simulation.
To further support their customers, Volume Graphics has also added a new Technical Consulting unit that provides professional consulting and evaluation services.
“With version 3.3 of our software solutions, we are once again laying the foundation for customers to make their processes smarter,” says Christof Reinhart, CEO and co-founder of Volume Graphics GmbH.
“For example, using the new data export, metrology data derived with the tremendous measurement capabilities of our software can be seamlessly shared with QA systems, where the values can then be combined and checked over time. More than ever before, this new feature enables customers to better integrate leading-edge CT technology into their existing software landscape. The new export feature is based on the native support of the widely used Q-DAS format, which makes using results in third-party statistical or analysis software especially easy.”
Volume Graphics GmbH has been developing software for non-destructive testing based on industrial computed tomography (CT) for over 20 years. With a market share of around 80%, Volume Graphics occupies a leading position in the industrial CT software industry, as confirmed by the global management consultancy Frost & Sullivan with the "2018 Global Industrial CT Software Market Leadership Award". Customers around the world, e.g., from the automotive, aerospace, and electronics industries, use Volume Graphics software for quality assurance in product development and production. In addition to its headquarters in Heidelberg, the company has branches in the USA, Japan, Singapore, and China. Further information can be found at: www.volumegraphics.com
