GOM has developed GOM Volume Inspect, volume visualization and inspection software which it says can analyzing volume data collected from any available computed tomography (CT) system.

According to the company, using the software can simplify volume analysis tasks and supply data on a part’s geometries, voids or internal structures and multipart assembly situations.

GOM Volume Inspect uses a volume rendering function which visualizes the whole part including the internal structures, the company said. The user can also virtually cut the object at any point and view it layer by layer in order to see details and gain information about the quality of the part.

The software can automatically detect any volume defect in a part, such as shrinkage cavities, and evaluates the quality by checking defect dimensions including volume, diameter and distance from outer casing, according to GOM. GOM Volume Inspect also includes a function that allows the user to load volume data of several parts into one project and execute a trend analysis on this data.
