Here you can find out more about our research projects along the entire product lifecycle. More projects will follow in the future.  


Development of a fusion technology including laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) and multi energy X-ray transmission (ME-XRT), which will be able to classify crushed mineral particles on a conveyor belt.

Cast Control

The aim of the project is to identify the causes of rejects and eliminate them at an early stage by combining data from the casting process of light alloy wheels and the results of X-ray inspection.

Gluten-free bakery products

Analysis of gluten-free bakery products and their behavior during the baking process using computed tomography (CT).


Development of molecular markers and/or biomarkers for breeding industrial potato varieties with lower susceptibility to volunteer plants and second formation of shoots and therefore greater heat tolerance.


Optimization of casting processes for sustainable development of this industry.


Friedrich-Alexander-Universität (FAU) Erlangen-Nürnberg commissioned researchers at Fraunhofer EZRT to build a CT system for conditions of weightlessness.

Underground root structures and ripening processes of fruiting heads

Use of industrial computed tomography for the analysis of underground structures.

Plant structures in high resolution

Research into the effects of external stress factors on the microstructure of plants.


The one-klick computed tomography system "ValuCT" allows users to take 2D X-rays and create reconstructed CT volume data records at the push of a button.

Inline CT system for large components

A state-of-the-art inline CT system that has unique features and enables the monitoring of many new component classes.

Nondestructive monitoring of hybrid cast component quality

Elaboration of a nondestructive inline testing system that renders all fault types in hybrid components.


The DRAGONFLY technology, deployed as part of a fully automated 100 percent X-ray inspection, has the potential to completely supplant the previous test setup used to ensure the quality of safety-critical cast components.

ODC - Optical Device Counter

Development of the world’s first contactless component counter that can determine the number of surface-mounted devices (SMDs) in containers with an accuracy greater than 99 percent.


There is currently no system on the market that can monitor arbitrary cross-sectional geometries and materials comprehensively, non-destructively and continuously, and do so at high resolution and high speed. The TORERO project is aimed at closing this gap.


Development of a mobile drill core scanner, which supports the classification of the mineral composition and texture of rocks on site.


A system for evaluating and sorting printed circuit boards (PCBs) using dual energy X-ray technology.
