Industrial 3D Metrology Scanners
Precision and accuracy play an eminent role within any production process like light metal castings, plastics injection molding, additive manufacturing, and final assembly. Industrial 3D metrology tasks range from prototype inspection to full process control and final acceptance checks. Total confidence in the safety and reliability of parts and assets you produce requires highly precise measurements throughout the manufacturing process - and the ability to react to any defect detection quickly.
Measuring the Inaccessible
State of the art coordinate measurement machines (CMM) are able to measure surfaces at high accuracy. However, internal surfaces that are out of reach for the probes and laser light or hidden areas cannot be controlled. This is where Waygate Technologies comes in.
Waygate Technologies' advanced high-precision industrial metrology systems include CT-scanners that provide high-resolution insight not only on internal defects but also capture any internal surfaces with just a single scan, allowing non-destructive detection of any geometry deviations. And with solutions that range from small parts scanners to industrial, production-line capable, gantry-based robotic scanners, you can rest assured we have a system that can deliver whatever inspection metrics you require.
We used to be GE Inspection Technologies, now we’re Waygate Technologies, a global leader in NDT solutions with more than 125 years of experience in ensuring quality, safety and productivity.

Industrial Metrology - Key Features
Measurement: ruby|plate phantom
The patented fully VDI 2630 compliant ruby|plate phantom allows measuring in all directions with one scan, allowing 3 times faster system accuracy verification without any user interaction.
true|position is the advanced method for compensation of residual system mechanical uncertainties included in the Metrology 2.0 package. It expands the two measurement positions with VDI 2630 specified accuracy to all positions which can be verified with the ruby|plate phantom:
• New VDI 2630 specification: SD= (3.8 + L/100 mm) μm (2 positions per standard)
• Specification for any other position: SD= (5.5 + L/50 mm) μm
Additionally, by applying the fully automated easy|calib, the VDI specification (3.8 + L/100 mm) µm can be met at any position with just a few minutes of calibrating.
Calibration: voxel|calib and easy|calib
The fully-automated voxel|calib procedure allows calibration of the CT system with just one simple click – anytime when needed!
Additionally, the easy|calib local calibration tool eliminates remaining magnification errors at any given position, enabling CT users to achieve the VDI specification (3.8 + L/100 mm) µm at any position with just a few minutes of calibrating.
Analysis: datos|x metrology|check
The easy to use datos|x metrology|check software tool enables full-scale validation, monitoring and reporting of the CT systems metrology performance. Quickly analyze validation results, export detailed PDF reports, or perform routine equipment checks.
metrology|check is applied for a quick reassurance in a new technology as well as to ensure compliance with internal metrology requirements and guidelines as part of measuring equipment monitoring routines.
Environment: Research & Development, Metrology Labs
Measurement technicians in R&D and quality labs require incredibly accurate industrial metrology measurements for:
- First article inspection
- Reverse engineering
- New construction simulations
- New materials with its inner structure and behavior
Measurement accuracy and reliability are critical during many steps in the production process, including:
- Quality control
- Production ramp-up
- Tool correction
- Dimensional control such as wall thickness analyses
- Process optimization
- Post Process control
- Final assembly control
Reduce scan time from 60 minutes to just 6 with artifact-free precision. For decades, scanning took hours because applying extremely slow fan-beam CT was the only way to reduce scatter radiation without reducing quality. But now, with the patented Scatter|correct technology, you can scan large sample batches much faster—without compromising quality. This unique functionality combines the low-artifact, high precision performance of fan-beam CT with the increased speed of cone-beam CT to improve the precision of failure analysis and 3D metrology inspection tasks with up to 100 times higher throughput. Additionally, in combination with Scatter|correct, Waygate Technologies brand new adaptive Scatter correct ASC|filter is significantly reducing artifacts caused by reduced grey values.
Efficiency: Dynamic 41 digital detectors
Reduce scan time from 6 minutes to 3 with increased detector sensitivity. The Dynamic 41|100 and Dynamic 41|200 detectors are the first in Waygate Technologies exclusive next-generation industrial X-ray flat panel detector platform. They combine increased detector sensitivity, faster frame rates, a larger imaging area, and adaptive imaging modes to help make 2D radiographic and 3D CT inspections more efficient and productive.
