The Fraunhofer Application Center for CT in Metrology (CTMT) at the Deggendorf Institute of Technology (DIT) in Lower Bavaria is a branch lab directly affiliated with the Fraunhofer Development Center X-Ray Technology EZRT and is thus part of one of the largest research facilities for X-ray technology worldwide.
Specializing in the application and development of industrial X-ray computed tomography (CT), the CTMT in Deggendorf can draw on a wealth of experience spanning more than 15 years. This expertise includes innovative industrial services (CT measurement technology, nondestructive material testing, defect and damage analyses) as well as collaborative and contracted research and development for industrial applications.
The CTMT also provides practical training for future engineers at the DIT through lectures, internships and academic projects (bachelor, master and PhD level).
Such a diverse field of work requires a range of high-tech equipment and the team therefore has access to numerous task-specific CT systems that are equipped with the latest high-performance computers and corresponding analytical tools. There are also plans for an inline CT system to be installed and commissioned later this year. The concrete planning phase for a robot-assisted digitalization work cell with CT sensors is already underway. In addition, the ties to Fraunhofer EZRT provide access to an even greater range of high-performance CT systems and resources.
