CT Software Solution Delivers High-Performance 3D Data Analysis

GOM has recently announced its new software platform GOM Inspect Suite that allows for a system-independent evaluation of measurement data. The platform includes the software solution GOM Volume Inspect offering innovative volume visualization and inspection features for analyzing volume data collected from any computed tomography system (CT). It simplifies volume analysis tasks significantly while providing deep insight on a part’s geometries, voids or internal structures as well as multipart assembly situations.

GOM Volume Inspect comes with a full 3D data analysis to evaluate a part’s quality and to optimize the manufacturing process. As the software features a clever on-demand data management concept, it delivers high performance at any time, even in case of huge volume data packages, and speeds up analysis processes.

Complete CT data analysis in 3D

Volume Renderer for Intuitive Generation of Sectional Views

GOM Volume Inspect includes a powerful volume rendering function, which visualizes the whole part including the internal structures. The user can cut the object at any point and view it layer by layer in order to see smallest details and gain in-depth information about the quality of the part.

Wide Range of Analysis Criteria and Result Presentation

The software also automatically detects any volume defect in a part, such as shrinkage cavities, and accurately evaluates the quality by checking defect dimensions including volume, diameter and distance from outer casing.

Moreover, it is possible to evaluate the dimensions of CT volume data – be it full-field evaluations, GD&T or inspections of geometric dimensions on the outside of the part as well as on internal structures. GOM Volume Inspect walks the user through the complete analysis process and delivers the measured results in a transparent report with a single mouse click. The report may include snapshots, images, tables, charts, text and graphics.

Trend Analysis and Object Comparison

GOM Volume Inspect also includes a function that allows the user to load volume data of several parts into one project, and execute a trend analysis on this data. This automated comparison is a true advantage for quality assurance managers who measure parts on a regular basis in order to derive a quality trend from the measurement data. The function also works on part comparisons, e. g. when comparing identical parts delivered from different suppliers.

Basic Volume Inspection Features for Free

GOM offers the GOM Inspect Suite with basic volume inspection functionality for free. The software can be downloaded. GOM Volume Inspect, providing the full extent of the volume data analysis capabilities, includes the paid GOM Inspect Professional module as well as the paid add-on solution Advanced Volume Inspect is available as a free 30-day trial.
