Inspiring Exchanges

The UGMNA 2018 is the first Volume Graphics User Group Meeting in North America. It’s the company’s answer to the ever-growing interest of North American customers in a regional user meeting. Volume Graphics has already established similar events in its hometown Heidelberg, Germany, and in Nagoya, Japan, which are both growing in popularity every year. Over the years, these events lead to inspiring exchanges between hundreds of attendees who use Volume Graphics software in quality control, metrology, damage analysis, and product development.

Volume Graphics: Enabling Better Products

Volume Graphics has been developing software for industrial CT since 1997. The headquarters in Heidelberg are the largest of the five locations of Volume Graphics. Employees in offices in the USA (Charlotte, NC), Japan (Nagoya), China (Beijing) and soon Singapore offer sales and support to customers and partners in their respective regions. 

As of 2016, more than 70% of the “Fortune Global 500” companies worldwide in the automotive and electronics industries were using Volume Graphics solutions. Volume Graphics enables companies to make better products. Its software helps them to find out as much about their products as possible – and non-destructively at that. Industrial CT provides the basis for this, as CT scans reveal every aspect of a component.
