X-rays measure inside objects

X-ray computer tomography has become an indispensable medical examination aid. Three years ago, Dr. Martin Simon started Volumetrik GmbH in Singen, Germany, with the intention to apply the CT X-ray technology for industrial inspections. Much older is the family-owned Wenzel Metrology Group in Wiesthal, Germany, a wellknown supplier of high-precision coordinate and gear measurement machines. The Wenzel management had the brilliant brainwave to acquire Simon’s Volumetrik to expand their measuring machine programme with instruments that are not only able to look into, but also inspect and measure the – often hidden – interior of industrial\ objects. Combining the disciplines of these two firms proved to be a perfect and fruitful marriage, which led to the birth of two sophisticated measuring machines: the exaCT® M for large objects and the exaCT S for smaller ones.
