Reduce your design cycle, inspection times, and meet higher-level quality standards at a lower cost

Imaging techniques such as computed tomography are increasingly used in industry as a method for nondestructive testing, adding to standard CMM the ability to make digital measurements and detect and quantify defects inside a part.

We developed Thermo Scientific Avizo Software in collaboration with major industrial partners in the aerospace, automotive, and consumer goods industries. We have integrated expertise acquired over more than 10 years so that you can use Avizo Software to visualize, analyze, and inspect parts and materials acquired by CT systems and microscopy. 

Avizo Software provides a comprehensive set of tools that address the entire research-to-production cycle: from materials research in off-line labs to automated quality control in production environments. With Avizo Software, you can reduce your design cycle and inspection times, while meeting higher-level quality standards at a lower cost.

Automation

Thanks to our automation capabilities, and with the addition of our always expanding online repository of add-ons (Xtra Gallery), you can encapsulate repeatable workflows into easy-to-reproduce recipes. With the addition of artificial intelligence, analysis can be performed by non-image processing experts, allowing them to save time on complex analysis while ensuring results consistency. 

When designing a new mechanical part, prototyping its manufacturing process, monitoring quality on the production line, or inspecting it after it fails, X-ray CT combined with software applications allows you to optimize your design, increase production quality, and quickly fix a possible design flaw.

Avizo Software allows for detection and quantification of porosity, distribution, clustering, closest pore, distance to surface of the part), corrosion, cracks in metal alloys or polymer parts, delamination, gluing issues, change of density, or voids in the matrix in a composite material part, for instance.

Avizo Software can measure wall thickness and import CAD models to perform surface deviation analysis.

While digital industrial inspection aims at improving production quality, the inspection process should also be able to provide cost reductions and support increased productivity. The ultimate goal is to fully automate complex inspection scenarios.

Avizo Software for industrial inspection provides an advanced recipe mechanism that allows defect detection and part characterization to be automated. For a particular inspection workflow, the recipe is created just once and can then be replayed at any time. The recipe includes advanced analysis processes that give meaningful insight about defects that are detected during the inspection. The automatically generated quantifiable measurements allow a proper assessment of the part’s quality. .

While digital industrial inspection aims at improving production quality, the ability to document the results generated during the inspection workflow and maintain a proper traceability of these results is of utmost importance.

Avizo Software for industrial inspection provides reporting and traceability mechanisms. The generation of these reports can even be automated through the recipe functionality. Reports can include 3D visualization snapshots of the generated results, as well as spreadsheets containing the results of the different analyses. Each result generated through the inspection workflow contains a history log describing the different steps leading to this particular result.

Complex inspection scenarios, combining multiple recipes on different sub-regions of the part or material, can be created using Avizo Software (in-line version). Scenarios can combine multiple steps of visual inspection and automatic or manual measurements. Inspector services run scenarios created with Avizo Software designer and will accept or reject a part according to automated or interactive acceptance and/or tolerance values associated with automatic and/or manual measurements.

Avizo Software directly connects Inspector services with the acquisition system, streamlining the inspection process. Avizo Software (in-line version) pre-processes data pushed to a DICOM/DICONDE server; performs pre-processing, such as multi-part splitting, part registration to reference model, and acquisition artifact reduction; then dispatches the pre-processed part to a scalable collection of Inspector services. At any time, the results of inspection scenarios can be accessed with Reviewer services, where each step of the scenario can be reviewed and a final decision on part acceptance made. Avizo Software also includes user administration, allowing assignment and management of different permission levels.

Techniques

Fiber analysis

Avizo Software is an all-in-one image analysis platform for the visualization, processing, and quantification of fibrous materials. Avizo Software enables the detection of manufacturing process damage, such as matrix cracking, fiber/matrix debonding, or fiber breakage. Defects in the material can be quantified locally (voids, cracks) or globally (cross-sectional distortions or misalignment).

Porosity analysis

Avizo Software is an all-in-one image analysis platform for the visualization, processing, and quantification of porous materials. Avizo Software enables the detection and classification of various types of porosity (for example, connected vs isolated; macro pores vs micro pores), even on images with complex artifacts (such as pore back effect in FIB-SEM).

 

Pore Network Analysis

Avizo Software is an all-in-one image analysis platform for the visualization, processing, and quantification of porous materials. This extension enables the conversion of the pore space into a model (Pore Network Model) representing pores and their connectivity, on which various properties can be color mapped. It also provides advanced pore space statistics (pore size distribution, pore throat size distribution, channel length, etc.) and filtering of the model based on its properties.

Permeability analysis

Avizo Software is an all-in-one image analysis platform for the visualization, processing, and quantification of your materials. The Xlab extension provides numerical simulation capabilities to compute absolute permeability, thermal conductivity, electrical resistivity, and molecular diffusivity.

Failure Analysis

Avizo Software provides a fast and robust meshing engine to automatically create simulation-ready meshes from 3D labeled images. Avizo Software generates high-quality meshes with smoothed conforming interfaces from large multi-material segmented images. You have fine control over element size distribution, while Avizo Software preserves thin structures and topology. Meshes can be exported to major solver’s format along with boundary conditions. Avizo Software also provides import of the solver’s outputs for post-processing the results with advanced visualization tools.
