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.”

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.
