Microfocus X-ray inspection in automotive industry
High resolution X-ray inspection and increasingly microfocus computed tomography assure the quality of safety-related components in modern cars.

These include chassis frame components made of light metal alloys and car body parts from compound materials that should help to save weight and increase the energy efficiency of the car. Furthermore advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), efficient drive concepts with hybrid engines or electric engines, and their energy supply (high power batteries and electronics, IGBTs).

Typical Applications
