Nikon Metrology X-ray & CT inspection services help you to focus on what matters to you, delivering high quality products in the shortest time possible.
In a production environment where a fast solution to a problem is essential, internal material defects, complicated assemblies and hidden geometries can all be too complex and time consuming for manufacturers’ in-house inspection capabilities. In research and development, traditional methods of potting and slicing parts to analyse internal structure add time and expense to the prototyping process, due to their destructive nature.
If you are a manufacturer of components or assemblies incorporating plastics, metals, ceramics, electronic components or any combination of these, Nikon Metrology has in-house Inspection centers to perform X-ray and CT contract inspection services for new or existing clients.

In addition we have a large international network of distributors that offer service inspection. When a company has a need to investigate a component the simple act of disassembling the part can destroy any evidence within the sample and no valuable information is gathered. X-ray and CT inspection can provide valuable information on the part, and is often used for fault analysis, process evaluation and product development - without the need for disassembly or destructive testing.
In the Formula Student event, students of engineering, business studies and economics design mobility concepts for the future. In order to guarantee the high quality of the electric vehicles they develop, students from Dresden University use Nikon measuring technology to measure and test their automobile components
