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


Analysis of static or dynamic material properties


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.


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

Product Development

Definition of parameters of the production process or the product itself

Gluten-free bakery products

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


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


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.

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.


Testing the quality of components or products

Nondestructive monitoring of hybrid cast component quality

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


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.


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.

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.


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.

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.


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