Optical Tomography Enables Considerable Savings in Quality Assurance of AM Parts

End-To-End Monitoring During Series Production Components produced for the aerospace industry must satisfy strict quality assurance criteria. Especially in series production environments, there are high standards for component quality and hence process stability and reproducibility. End-to-end quality assurance is therefore crucial throughout the entire production chain. Just a few years ago, there were no well-established testing procedures for additive manufacturing,
