"In the past, we primarily relied on the experience of our product developers and common sense. We can now measure every detail with absolute certainty and reproducibility," says Pichler. In his opinion, the real benefit is not so much the speed of the non-destructive measurement, but in the quality. With production volumes in the hundreds of millions annually at starlim//sterner, defects would have an absolutely devastating effect. “The CT measurement allows us to substantially increase the service life of the products. With the long-term stability of the parts, we increase the total quality of the product and strengthen the brand of our customers," explains the development manager.
