Volume Graphics Releases New Generation of CT Software Solutions

Updates in 3.3 include multi-material dimensioning, native Q-DAS support, OCR-based automation, and high-quality volume meshing.

Volume Graphics has announced the latest generation of its software solutions for non-destructive quality assurance with industrial computed tomography (CT): Version 3.3 of VGSTUDIO MAX, VGSTUDIO, VGMETROLOGY, and VGinLINE.

The company is the leading provider of industrial CT software, according to management consultants Frost & Sullivan (basis: "2018 Global Industrial CT Software Market Leadership Award"). Volume Graphics’ VGSTUDIO MAX software is used for the analysis and visualization of industrial computed tomography (CT) data and covers all requirements related to metrology, defect detection and assessment, material properties, and simulation.

Using the new version, customers can determine the surfaces of multi-material components, export measurement and analysis results to store them centrally in quality management software, automate inspection processes more flexibly based on text recognition, and translate real CT data into volume meshes for simulation.

To further support their customers, Volume Graphics has also added a new Technical Consulting unit that provides professional consulting and evaluation services.

“With version 3.3 of our software solutions, we are once again laying the foundation for customers to make their processes smarter,” says Christof Reinhart, CEO and co-founder of Volume Graphics GmbH.

“For example, using the new data export, metrology data derived with the tremendous measurement capabilities of our software can be seamlessly shared with QA systems, where the values can then be combined and checked over time. More than ever before, this new feature enables customers to better integrate leading-edge CT technology into their existing software landscape. The new export feature is based on the native support of the widely used Q-DAS format, which makes using results in third-party statistical or analysis software especially easy.”

e-Xstream engineering and Volume Graphics cooperation on Mechanical Simulation of Fiber Compound Materials and Components

e-Xstream engineering, an MSC Software Company, part of Hexagon, and Volume Graphics, two leading suppliers of software for multi-scale material modeling and industrial computed tomography, respectively, cooperate in the area of mechanical simulation of fiber compound materials and components. The combined use and the interfaces between the software solutions of e-Xstream and Volume Graphics allows companies active in developing and producing fiber compound components to efficiently optimize manufacturing parameters and ensure the quality of their products.

Using the Volume Graphics software suite VGSTUDIO MAX, fiber orientations and fiber volume fractions can be determined from CT scans of fiber compound material probes or components and mapped onto existing volume meshes (in PATRAN ® or NASTRAN ® format). This information can be used for validation of fiber distributions from injection molding simulations. It can also be directly fed into mechanical simulations of fiber compound materials or components. For this purpose, a dedicated format for export from VGSTUDIO MAX into Digimat® is available.

The interface between VGSTUDIO MAX and Digimat has now been extended to support the export of porosity information from CT scans into Digimat. The export of the porosity information is a function of VGSTUDIO MAX since version 3.2.4, whereas the import is a function of Digimat since version 2019.0. The extended interface allows to map micro-porosity in a statistical way onto a volume mesh by calculating the average porosity level for each cell of the mesh in VGSTUDIO MAX and then exporting it to Digimat. Furthermore, macro-porosity can be mapped individually, i.e. pore by pore, onto the receiving volume mesh in Digimat. In both cases, the influence of the porosity on the mechanical material properties can be modeled in Digimat and then used in macroscopic structural simulations at the component level.

“The extended interface between VGSTUDIO MAX and Digimat allows to investigate the influence of porosity on the mechanical properties of fiber compounds, no matter whether the porosity is unintended or introduced on purpose, such as in foam injection molding processes.” – says Philippe Hebert, Product Manager, e-Xstream engineering
