DGZfP visits VisiConsult

Subcommittee “Interfaces” of DGZfP visits VisiConsult

The German Society for nondestructive material testing (DGZfP) invited its subcommittee “Interfaces” for two days (February 19.-20.) to come to Stockelsdorf to VisiConsult.

The DGZfP is the world’s oldest society for nondestructive material testing. The DGZfP organizes sponsorships in science and research and offers communication between these pressure groups. The subcommittee “Interfaces, documentation, data safety, storage and filing” is part of the new Committee ZfP 4.0 and came together at VisiConsult for two days in February for the fourth meeting.
VisiConsult’s Dr. Frank Herold (Head of Application) gave the visitors a warm welcome.

The central topic of the meeting (on both days) was a standardized method for exchanging data. This method is called OPC Unified Architecture. Individual people of the subcommittee agreed to work actively forming a joint working group of OPC foundation and the VDMA (German Association of Machine manufacturers). This joint working group will act on behalf of the DGZfP and will work on an OPC companion specification for the area of ZfP. This specification is supposed to further enhance the 4.0 concept.
However, other topics like DICONDE and alternatives were discussed together, too.

In addition, there was a tour of the production halls of VisiConsult. VisiConsult is a manufacturer of X-ray machines and was awarded the title of “world market leader” by the Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK) a few days ago.
Dr. Frank Herold is content with the results of the meeting. He states: “We have accomplished a lot to further develop the topic of ZfP 4.0. This is a confirmation for VisiConsult on how important it is to participate in such groups and to welcome them here in our company.”

VisiConsult recognized as world market leader

VisiConsult recognized as world market leader for customized X-ray systems

The three chambers of industry and commerce in Flensburg, Kiel and Lübeck present 33 of their member companies in the brochure “Best Performances from the Real North”. These companies draw attention to themselves as world / EU market or technology leaders. Among them VisiConsult, the X-ray innovator from Stockelsdorf, Germany.

In order to leave no doubt and to stand up to a nationwide comparison, the Schleswig-Holstein chambers of industry and commerce are guided by the lexicon of the German world market leaders. In order to be classified as a world / EU market or technology leader from Schleswig-Holstein, the following criteria must be met:

  • Classification as a Schleswig-Holstein based company
  • Classification as an internationally relevant product or service
  • Market leadership possible based on quantitative and qualitative criteria

Therefore, it was particularly important to the Chambers of Commerce and Industry to have concrete evidence as a verification of an asserted market leadership when determining the market leaders. In consultation with VisiConsult, they determined this evidence in individual discussions and documented them internally. It turned out that VisiConsult is the world market leader for customized X-ray systems for non-destructive material testing.

Hajo Schulenburg, Managing Director at VisiConsult, makes it clear: “Each and every one of our employees is responsible for this award in their own way. We greatly appreciate your personal achievements and failures that have become a source of valuable experience. And we look forward to more colleagues who will continue on this path with us.”

Many renowned companies count on VisiConsult’s innovative and flexible handling of customer challenges, but also on scientific cooperation. An outstanding example is the cooperation with the company Breuckman eMobility for the implementation of a real inline CT system, that inspects short-circuit rings for electric motors by 100% .

One of the most popular systems for inspection in aviation is the XRHGantry, which is able to scan large components such as rotor blades can be scanned. CT scans are also possible with this system.

Ohm & Haener signs big order on the Euroguss show

Ohm & Haener signs big order for new VisiConsult X-ray system on the Euroguss show

The Euroguss in Nuremberg is the leading casting exhibition in Europe. The innovative X-ray company VisiConsult from northern Germany was able to log a large order from Ohm & Haener Metallwerk for a high-end inspection system directly on the exhibition.

The privately-owned company Ohm & Haener Metallwerk (O+H) from Olpe in Germany is an innovative casting specialist for non-ferrous metals and a specialist for mechanical post-processing. The company has already invested in several VisiConsult systems and is very satisfied with the performance and service provided by the manufacturer. As O+H got a new project for very big and complex parts that required X-ray inspection, the managing directors met with the VisiConsult team on the Euroguss casting show and negotiated a fair price for the roof-mounted XRHGantry system and sealed it on the spot with a handshake deal.

Big, bigger, XRHGantry!

O+H is already a power-user of VisiConsult’s X-ray cabinet and CT solutions. When the largest cabin came on the market, the XRH222TL, they were the pilot customer to invest in the new technology that allowed easy top loading through the roof. Ulrich Brand, NDT Sales Manager at VisiConsult, has been the responsible person and supported O+H right from the start, says: “Our customers come to us, because we are more to them than just a supplier. At VisiConsult we see our customers as long term partners and we do everything we can to help them succeed.”

This time the company was interested in a solution that could handle very large aluminium castings with a weight of up to 750 kilos and a size of 3100 mm in length, 1400 mm in height and 600 mm in width. The inspection of heavy and large components requires a versatile and adaptable system. Dr.-Ing. Ludger Ohm, Managing Director at O+H, explains: “After many discussions with Mr. Brand, it was clear: The XRHGantry from VisiConsult is the perfect system for the inspection of such large components. It is a roof-mounted system with seven programmable axes. In our case, an X-ray voltage of up to 320 kV is needed to penetrate our parts. As we are used to VisiConsult, they were able to provide us a suitable, customized solution very quickly.”

A successful start of the year

The deal was sealed directly on the Euroguss with a handshake between Dr.-Ing Ludger Ohm and Ulrich Brand. This marks the end of a successful exhibition in Nuremberg and is a great start into 2020 for VisiConsult. It continues a series of recent successes, like being awarded worldwide technology leader status by the German Chamber of commerce and showing strong growth beyond 100 employees in 2019. Commercial Director Lennart Schulenburg says: “It is great to see the ongoing trust of the market into our company, even amidst global economic challenges. VisiConsult will continue to grow strongly and we are on the brink of releasing many cutting-edge product innovations to the market. This will be an exciting decade with NDT 4.0.”
