Industrial computed tomography (CT) machines produced by Wenzel add dimensional accuracy to images and enable engineers to better understand or repair a component or an assembly. A modern CT system can measure and examine both the inside and outside of a part in detail, measuring single- and multi-material assemblies, isolating individual components of different densities, and analyzing the material flow in plastic and composite parts. With CT, engineers can capture the part's shape and dimensions, density, material flow, and any porosity, cracks, or inclusions. Data is stored in a Voxel, or a 4-D pixel. Engineers then can perform inspection, non-destructive testing, archiving, reverse engineering, and investigation at any time; archived data can be re-analyzed in the event of a field failure to provide correction.

Making off-highway equipment, such as construction or agriculture machines, more efficient continues to be a priority after the final phase-in of the U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final emissions regulations. “Some of the companies we work with are running out of credits and unfortunately still struggling with Tier 4,” explained Tristan Donley, Technical Director, Off-Highway Heavy Vehicles North American for Exa, a supplier of software for computational fluid dynamics (CFD).
