Batteries and Electronics

Voyager offers a suite of powerful features that make it an indispensable tool for battery and electronics engineers. Its high-resolution 3D reconstruction capabilities allow engineers to visualize the internal structure of batteries in intricate detail, enabling precise examinations of electrodes, separators, particles, and debris that might affect performance. Engineers can take accurate measurements of critical features like anode overhang, ensuring optimal design and performance. Additionally, the 2D slice views provide valuable insights into potential delamination and swelling issues within the battery. The Expanded Scan Volume acquisition module enhances resolution, particularly for larger cells, facilitating thorough inspections and enabling engineers to address any potential defects with confidence.

Lumafield’s CT scanner and software gave us superpowers to see exactly what was built,  allowing us to ensure our products are being assembled correctly without destroying units or compromising our testing data.

LG21700 lithium-ion battery

Voyager’s dimensioning features allow engineers to measure internal features of batteries, as seen here in the LG21700 lithium-ion battery used in the Tesla Model 3 and Model Y.


Apple Thunderbolt 4 (USB-C) Pro Cable

Industrial CT enables high-resolution inspection of all critical components of this Apple Thunderbolt 4 (USB-C) Pro Cable. Engineers can assess the solder quality on the BGA as well as blind and buried vias on the 9-layer PCBA.


Lithium-polymer battery packet

The thin foils inside this lithium-polymer battery packet are delicate and can tear easily. Industrial CT reveals a tiny separation at the bend between the electrode and separator layer.
