In a desire to continuously improve the quality requirements of its products, the French plastic injection company Francia, located in Bellignat (01), has acquired the latest Zeiss X-ray technology and thus welcomed the Zeiss Metrotom 1 in its premises in spring 2022.
Established for more than 100 years in the plastics valley, Francia has undergone many industrial transformations towards the era of digitalization. Characterized by expertise and versatility, its factory is the very image of Industry 4.0 thanks to its continuous acquisition of high-performance and innovative technologies. The arrival of the Zeiss Metrotom 1 confirms that Francia has entered a new dimension: that of non-destructive internal inspection.
The Zeiss Metrotom 1 is the ideal device to improve its quality inspection range using industrial computed tomography. The latter comes with the Gom volume inspect operation and inspection software, which simplifies the evaluation of plastic metrological parts. Compact, complete and easy to use, this tomograph allows accurate measurements and a quick return on investment.
- X-ray sources: 160kV
- X-ray detector: 2.5 k
- Metrological Requirements (MPE SD): < 5µm
- Software: Gom Volume Inspect (included)
Fields of application: non-destructive testing, simultaneous scanning of several parts.
Inspection functions: measurement of internal and external structures, inspection of internal defects, e.g. re-reinforcements.
Always with a view to sustaining its growth, Francia, which already had a Metrotom virtual license and a Zeiss PiWeb software license for quality data monitoring, proves its continued ability to invest by supplementing its machine park with this Zeiss X-ray tomography solution.
Ivan Audouard, President of Francia: " Winner of France Relaunch, we have chosen to equip ourselves with the Zeiss Metrotom 1, thus continuing our close collaboration with Zeiss. This investment allows us to take another step in our search for performance. Indeed, in addition to saving time on the metrology part, especially during our developments, our teams now have the opportunity to analyze the invisible and the inaccessible! »
