WinWerth® MultiMaterialScan

WinWerth® MultiMaterialScan

The WinWerth® MultiMaterialScan enables the automatic, sub-voxel accurate calculation of separate STL point clouds per material from CT volume data, for example for plastic and metal components of connectors.

Conventional algorithms allow automatic and sufficiently accurate determination of surface points without prior information about the workpiece (e.g. CAD model or STL point cloud of a master part) only for measuring objects from one material. With the new WinWerth® MultiMaterialScan, a separate measuring point cloud is now automatically calculated for each material, even for measuring objects consisting of several materials that attenuate very differently. Typical applications are, for example, plastic-moulded assemblies such as connectors or pump heads with corresponding integrated metallic components.

The materials to be considered by the algorithm can be defined by the operator by simply setting measurement windows in the volume section. The grey values contained in the measurement windows are automatically assigned to the respective material. This assignment can be tested and, if necessary, adjusted by means of a preview with colour marking of the materials.
