RoboTom from Rayscan Gmbh is claimed to be the first production implementation of the seamless integration of an industrial robot with high-resolution X-ray computed tomography (CT). Depending on its application RoboTom is scaleable in size allowing a high level of flexibility and freely definable localized 3D X-ray imaging zones.
Possible application include testing and analysis of assemblies comprising rivets, welded or glued joints, as well
as the local non-destructive testing of large assemblies made of sheet-metal or fiber composite materials. RoboTom represents a breakthrough in the automated, non-destructive monitoring of production processes.
Automotive assemblies including full BIW are target applications for the RoboTom which was displayed in a prototype format at the Control Exhibition earlier this year.
Part of the development project has been Parts funded under the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) program.
