Phenotyping

Many plants are struggling to adjust to the changing climate. In order to come up with an adequate response to changing conditions, we analyze how different plant varieties react to various environmental influences.

Production monitoring of cast parts using X-ray technology

We develop systems using X-ray technology (2D and computed tomography) for production monitoring that detect deviations from optimum production processes at an early stage in order to minimize production rejects.

Sorting and recycling

We are researching dual energy methods to be able to sort and identify raw materials in a reliable fashion. Before sorting, we X-ray the material to be examined. This process is particularly suitable for recycling applications.
