Compact and Precise – Werth TomoScope® 200 Now with 225 kV

The new TomoScope® 200 / 225 kV coordinate measuring machine with X-ray tomography combines a compact footprint with a new high-resolution X-ray detector. It is excellent for performing dimensional measurements and for material inspection of small and medium sized work pieces. Due to its high pixel density and large detector surface area, measurement times can be greatly reduced. Depending on the application, a significantly higher resolution can also be obtained. The powerful machines, with 190 or 225 kV, are distinguished by very small focal point sizes even at very high power.

The machines in the TomoScope® 200 series can be equipped with transmission and reflection X-ray sources ranging in power from 130 kV to 225 kV, depending on customer requirements. They can be used for a broad spectrum of measurement tasks. The arrangement of the X-ray source, measured object, and detector, which can be positioned relative to each other fully automatically, allows the user to optimize the measurement for resolution and cone beam angle. With highly developed machine technology and the patented process of "local sub-voxeling", very low measurement uncertainty can be achieved.

Werth WFP/S

Werth WFP/S: The Most Successful Microprobe in the World – Now in Freeform Scanning Mode

The Werth Fiber Probe, with multiple patents, has been used exclusively with Werth coordinate measuring machines for many years. Due to its outstanding properties, such as maximum precision paired with very small probe sphere diameters, it has been proven many times over in the marketplace. With several hundred installations, it is by far the most successful microprobe in the world. With modern signal processing and 64-bit control technology, a freeform scanning mode is now possible without the use of predefined contours. The user simply selects the start and end points for the scan path and the sensor follows the unknown contour automatically.

Software integration is completely analogous to the functions of conventional measuring probes. This makes it easier for the user to operate. With negligible contact force in the µN range, the Fiber Probe ensures that work pieces will not be damaged, even when scanning freeform contours. The probe shank length, probe electronics, sensor offset and sensor drift have negligible effects on the measurement results. Another advantage is simple operation while observing the probe sphere with the camera.

The versatile WFP/S can be used in medical technology (implants), the watch industry (miniature gears) and automotive technology (fuel injection systems).

Werth 3D Patch

Werth 3D Patch – Focus Variation Method with a New Level of Performance

With a new, patent-pending method for varying focus, Werth 3D Patch now makes it possible to measure topographies over an even greater dynamic range. Dark and light areas of the same region of the object can be captured simultaneously with optimal lighting and used to calculate the measurement point cloud. WinWerth® software can then be used to convert the calculated points into STL format and compare them directly with the CAD data. Standard geometric elements can be measured either by using the CAD data to select points, or by simply clicking on a point on the desired surface and selecting the type of geometric element to be measured using the WinWerth® segmentation function. The new 3D Patch is available for all machines with image processing sensors.

New Werth Technical Reference Book Multisensor Technology

The New Werth Technical Reference Book for Multisensor Technology

With the title "Multisensor Coordinate Measuring Technology", the first report that concentrated on this technology appeared in 2003 (Volume 248). The contents were revised and expanded to include X-ray tomography in 2006.

In 2011 Volume 231 was released, dealing solely with coordinate measuring technology with X-ray tomography.

This was the motivation to produce the new Volume 352 with the previously introduced title. The significance of the sensors is addressed here with expanded content. This is extensively illustrated in function and application. Additional important subjects, such as contact probe force and the effects of temperature, have also been included.

The new technical reference "Multisensor Coordinate Measuring Technology – Dimensional Measurement Using Optics, Probes, and X-ray Tomography" provides users with up-to-date, detailed technical information for their day-to-day operations.

Werth TomoScope® – Automatic Loading to Closed CT

As with many manufacturing processes, integrated automated solutions ensure more efficient work in metrology, as well. To automate the process of production measurements with the Werth TomoScope®, it is now possible to use a pallet system to automatically feed in several identical or different parts.

The unique Werth multisensor concept is used. In place of a tactile or optical sensor, a gripper is mounted on a rotary tilting head. This utilizes the machine axes to populate the rotary table with parts from a pallet located within the machine. The measuring machine thus remains closed during the entire series of measurements.

This also eliminates additional safety concerns required when integrating external robots and a loading door. The TomoScope® can perform measurements without operator intervention during an "unmanned" shift. This option is currently available for the TomoScope® HV 500 and TomoScope® HV compact units.

About us

Company details

Quality, precision and innovation have formed the basis of successful corporate growth at Werth Messtechnik GmbH for over 60 years. The company’s headquarters is located in Giessen in a region of Germany with a long industrial tradition in fine mechanics and optics. The first profile projector, a floor model, set the benchmark for ergonomics and precision in 1955. In 1987, the first multisensor coordinate measuring machine with integrated image processing and laser distance sensor was presented under the name Inspector®.

In 2005 Werth presented the TomoScope®, the first machine with X-ray tomography developed specifically for coordinate measuring technology. This allows 3D components to be rapidly and completely captured for dimensional measurement.

Werth is currently the leading company in coordinate measuring technology with optical sensors, multisensors and X-ray tomography, as well as in the measurement of microfeatures. Global leadership in these market segments is exemplified in a series of global firsts and patents on machine technology and sensors. Werth’s quality management system, based on DIN EN ISO 9001, and the DakkS lab for calibrating coordinate measuring machines per DIN ISO 17025 guarantee the reliability and precision of the machines.
