SUPPLIER SHOWCASE 60 NOVEMBER 2018 Additive Manufacturing From design to serial production, Volume Graphics enables you to keep quality high by providing full insight into your products. At every step of the production process. All over the world. By choosing Volume Graphics software, you can rely on more than 20 years of expe- rience in the development of leading software for the analysis and visualization of industrial computed tomography (CT) data. Today, a broad range of global customers, e.g., from the automotive, aerospace and electronics industries, use Volume Graphics software for nondestructive quality assurance in product development and production. They know that Volume Graphics software gives them a decisive advantage: the ability to gain reliable insights and make better products. The demands on the quality of your products are numerous and challenging. VGSTUDIO MAX provides you with the results you need to make the right decisions to meet these demands—whether you are using the all-encompassing technology of CT or other 3D data formats such as point cloud, mesh and CAD. VGSTUDIO MAX enables you to perform precise measurements, compare printed parts with their CAD models, detect discontinuities and much more. It even allows you to predict how much force a part could theoretically withstand based on a CT scan.

Defect Assessment How does the porosity of a part influence its mechanical integrity? With just one click, you can now take the results of a porosity analysis into account in a structural mechanics simulation. In this way, VGSTUDIO MAX 3.2 combined with the Structural Mechanics Simulation Module not only finds defects, but also calculates their mechanical effect.
