Quality Assurance

Industrial inspection of electronics, castings, plastic injection and additive manufacturing parts.

Non-destructive testing (NDT) with X-ray computed tomography helps manufacturers monitor and optimize both their product and process quality. With Dragonfly 3D World, industrial users can unleash the true potential of scientific image processing for their inspections – and gain unique insights into the critical areas of parts and components.

Quantitative analysis:
count, measure, deliver.

Whether you are analyzing pores, fibers, grains or phases, Dragonfly 3D World’s
quantification and analysis tools give you powerful options for counting, measuring, and characterizing image features. 

Porosity and void analysis

Dragonfly 3D World's automated thresholding tools enable fast and efficient segmentation of casting or electronics parts. Porosity and voids can be calculated, visualized, and analyzed by size or volume using color coding, allowing for detailed examination of internal structures and defect identification.

Wall thickness analysis

Create detailed renderings that highlight varying thicknesses and their distribution within inspection parts. Use color-coding to differentiate thickness levels or provide comprehensive statistical analyses for deeper insights.

Size, shape, and spatial properties

Make measurements on hundreds to millions of individual grains, pores, organelles, etc. Select from volume, surface area, Ferret diameter, aspect ratio, roughness, sphericity and scores of additional measurements.

Analyze and classify
  • Cross-index measurements between analyses or across samples to answer nuanced research questions
  • Plot histograms to gain insights into the distribution and characteristics of your data and categorize objects according to specific criteria
  • Map out layer thicknesses and probe depth maps to understand biases in spatial distributions
  • Identify and evaluate three-phase boundaries and interfacial surface areas

Meshes and models

Produce high-quality meshes, vector fields, and spatial graphs from image data, segmentations, or simulations. These elements are generated with precision to meet complex scientific and industrial needs.

Numerical modeling options
  • Color-coded scalar meshes of local thickness, curvature, and deviation maps
  • Perform a wide range of pore network simulations with OpenPNM
  • Perform material response simulations on the microstructures of porous media with PuMA
  • Quantify fluid flow and heat dissipation with NGSolve 
  • Investigate the inter-relationship between connected components

Deviation from design

Does the final manufactured part conform to its original design? By importing the design mesh file (STL) Dragonfly 3D World allows the comparison of this file with the actual part. Color coding can be used to highlight the largest deviations or warping.

Fiber analysis

Calculating the physical properties of composites, polymers, and fibrous materials with Dragonfly 3D World provides researchers and product developers with the comprehensive understanding of material behavior that is essential for improving and developing new products.

More applications
  • Automated extraction of individual fibers from reinforced composites
  • Computation of microstructural characteristics, such as fiber length and tortuosity, orientation, thickness
  • Examination of the interface between fibers and matrix material in composites
