Development Center X-ray Technology EZRT

The Development Center X-Ray Technology EZRT, a division of the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS, is working in close cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institute for Nondestructive Testing IZFP in Saarbrücken.

Fraunhofer EZRT is an internationally leading research and development center in the area of non-destructive monitoring along the entire materials value chain of the product life cycle, ranging from raw materials via production towards recycling. Fraunhofer EZRT is defining and advancing the state of the art in this area, especially by applying imaging X-Ray and magnetic resonance techniques as well as optical inspection technologies. The research areas include sensor systems, simulation for data acquisition, image processing for data enhancement and evaluation (metadata acquisition), system development, metrology as well as applications and training. According to the Fraunhofer mission EZRT is positioning itself between basic research in the area of non-destructive imaging and industrial utilization in cooperation with end customers and OEMs. In order to enhance the competitive situation of the Bavarian, German and European economy and to develop new markets and fields of applications Fraunhofer EZRT is developing application-oriented solutions up to turnkey prototype systems. If required, we also assist our partners when transferring those to volume production.
