Applications


Plastics

Industrial CT solves a wide range of design and manufacturing problems in plastic products, including tooling errors and undesired voids. Scan finished assemblies to inspect seals, snap fits, and thread engagement in situ.

Leak detection

Scan assemblies to inspect multi-part interactions, identify leak paths, assess snap-fit engagement, and find hidden interferences.

Process control

Conduct design of experiments using Voyager's automated porosity detection tool to quantitatively tune and track process performance.

Assembly verification

Debug issues with thread engagement, dial in snap-fit design, and validate clearances.

Metals

Quickly find and quantify critical fabrication problems, including pores, voids, and fractures.

Void detection

Automatically identify and quantify voids in metal parts.

Impossible measurements

Use virtual cross-sections to perform measurements on out-of-reach features such as internal walls and dense lattices.

Assembly verification

Check seals for leak paths in assembled housings. Identify interference that could cause failures.

Case Study: rms Company

“I was able to have a meeting with our customer, log into Lumafield's software, and show evidence that prompted a design modification.”

Electronics

Avoid costly defects in electronics manufacturing with Lumafield’s industrial CT platform. Inspect solder, verify clearances, and troubleshoot conflicts between components.

Assembly checks

Verify the alignment of critical components and mechanical housings. Inspect points of interaction like cable connectors, inductive chargers, and heat sinks. Spot unintended interferences to improve reliability.

Battery inspection

See inside batteries to check production consistency. Qualify new battery technologies and suppliers with confidence.

Failure analysis

Investigate failures without destroying evidence. See more detail than a 2D X-ray image can provide.

Composites and Multi-Material

Understand the interaction between materials in carbon-fiber assemblies and glass-filled moldings. Inspect resin distribution, isolate inclusions, and qualify new lamination setups.

Particulate distribution

Check finished products inside and out. Ensure even distribution of resins and fillers.

Resin analysis

Perfect your resin application processes with automated porosity-detection and analysis tools.

Analyze failure modes

Perform structural and environmental tests, then measure the results inside and out.

Additive

Lumafield’s CT platform gives you the tools to validate, characterize, and manage new manufacturing processes and ensure that they meet your requirements.

See inside

Non-destructive slices and sections let you see lattices, porous structures, and complex internal details for the first time without cutting and polishing parts.

Adopt new materials

Check possible failure modes when adopting new materials. See layer adhesion failures and identify trapped material.

First article sign-off

Perform testing on new additive technologies, materials, and geometries. Qualify processes fully before locking them in.

Soft Goods

Scan shoes, clothing, and accessories to improve production processes. Industrial CT is faster and more detailed than manual destructive testing.

Non-destructive

For the first time, CT is cost-effective for shoemakers and apparel companies. Perform accurate, time-saving virtual inspections that don’t destroy early prototypes and first articles.

Performance materials

Accelerate adoption of performance materials such as composite structures, lightweight foams, and 3D printed components.

Counterfeit detection

See details that are typically hidden to find evidence of knock-offs 
and forgeries.
