Werth Messtechnik's Tomo-Scope XS is said to require maintenance only at long intervals, with virtually unlimited service life. Tomo-Scope XS has a transmission tube with a unique mono-block design that produces a small focal spot even at high X-ray power, so that rapid measurements can be performed at high resolution. This method combines the advantages of closed and open micro-focus X-ray tubes, Werth says.

The mono-block design combines the source, voltage generator and vacuum pump into a single serviceable unit. As such, maintenance is necessary after longer intervals, and it is said to have practically unlimited service life. Downtime and operating costs are also minimised, the company says. The maximum X-ray voltage is 130 kV, with an available 160 kV for workpieces with greater radiographic length and denser materials and up to 80 W at installation sites. The air-bearing rotary axis positions the workpiece with the highest precision to ensure low measurement uncertainty. Thanks to its compact design, it is relatively lighter and needs less space.

Like all Werth CT machines, Tomo-Scope XS also reconstructs the workpiece volume in real time, while capturing the images, allowing the system to be used for production monitoring. The use of Win-Werth measurement software for the overall measurement process enables traceability of the measurement results. Werth Messtechnik claims it is currently the first and only manufacturer to guarantee reliable and traceable measurement results by calibrating all CT machines according to standards, including DAkkS certification.

At Metav, the company booth will be in Hall 16, Booth B08.
