Fraunhofer Development Center for X-ray Technology

The Development Center X-ray Technology (EZRT), a division of Fraunhofer IIS, Erlangen, in cooperation with Fraunhofer IZFP, Saarbrücken, has four focal points of research: X-ray sensorics, computed tomography, image processing and applications.

Fraunhofer EZRT

  • is an internationally leading investigation and development centre for industrial X-ray technology.
  • defines and widens the current state of technology in the area of NDT, especially of X-ray and optical inspection technologies
  • is positioned between fundamental research in the area of non-destructive imaging (X-ray and optical methods) and the industrial use with end clients (in the form of prototypes) and system integrators (via licensing agreements)
  • has core competences in the area of NDT during the complete value-added chain of material processing, starting from raw material to recycling
  • develops application-oriented solutions even for prototype and small batch production to strengthen the competitive position of regional, national and international industries and to open up new markets and fields of application

Solutions from HEITEC PTS GmbH in cooperation with Fraunhofer EZRT enable the characterisation of materials as well as the inspection of components without without adversely affecting their function. We inspect microscopically small subjects, but also complete vehicles, and offer optical 2D and 3D measuring and inspection methods, X-ray sensor technology and simulations, image processing as well as system development.
