The new METROTOM 800 computer tomography from Carl Zeiss was specifically developed for 3D measurements and structural inspections of complex parts made of plastic, composite materials and ceramic.

With the help of metrotomography - the combination of metrology and tomography - this measuring system enables both the dimensional measurement of the geometry and the inspection of the interior structure of parts up to 150 millimeters. Carl Zeiss thus fulfills the expectations on extensive quality assurance of the manufacturers and users of such parts.

Features of METROTOM 800 computer tomograph:

  • The maintenance-free x-ray technology results in extremely low maintenance costs and thus minimal downtimes.
  • Thanks to the combination of the familiar precise kinematics from Carl Zeiss and innovative calibration procedures, METROTOM 800 computer tomograph achieves measuring accuracy of 4.5 µm + L/100.
  • Through the use of polymer concrete for the enclosure, the use of lead can be largely avoided. Here, Carl Zeiss demonstrates how the utilization of modern materials can protect employees, system operators and the environment - while implementing perfect measuring technology, ergonomic excellence and a corresponding design.
  • The small focal point of the x-ray source generates razor-sharp projection images on the detector. The high physical resolution of the x-ray detector of around 3 million pixels enables very high detail recognition.
Thanks to its performance features and attractive price, METROTOM 800 computer tomograph is the ideal system for mid-sized operations in the plastics industry. As a result of the maintenance-free x-ray technology, users have very low running costs.
