Advanced detail sensitivity monitoring by new concepts to improve the reliability of safety relevant products using industrial computed tomography

Project: EU project

Project Details


Metrology and standards to improve product quality and safety in iCT

Industrial computed tomography (iCT) has become an essential tool for quality assurance in industrial production. However, the detail detection sensitivity of these iCT systems currently must be evaluated by human operators using objects with artificial or natural flaws, which is unreliable.

Project develops a traceable and repeatable measurement method for the automated measurement and monitoring of detail sensitivity of iCT systems and to provide a related standard draft.

VTT MIKES identify tools and measurement strategies for measuring the structures of µm and mm range test gauges and develop methods to measure these gauges.

Call 2023: Metrology Support for Regulations and Standards

The project (23NRM05) has received funding from the European Partnership on Metrology, co-financed from the European Union’s Horizon Europe Research and Innovation Programme and by the Participating States.
