GOM Volume Inspect Pro
Volume data analysis
GOM Volume Inspect Pro features numerous functions that users can automate and program according to their needs. You can directly import all common formats of your CT data – irrespective of which computed tomography system you use for measuring.
Enhanced volume visualization
With Volume Detail View you can simultaneously display volume sections from different angles. This gives you an optimal orientation in the volume and is helpful to analyze your component in even greater detail. Transparency and color design are customizable. Use individual color plots for a clear and structured visualization of part features and material density in the volume.
Volume separation of batch scans
After having scanned several parts “in one shot” in the CT, you can now extract parts one by one out of the batch volume by using the Volume Separation function - thus simplifying individual evaluations or part-to-part comparisons.
Presenting results via video
Not only can you move virtually through each layer of your component, now you can also record video clips as you move along, save the evaluation and share it with others. The videos will make your analysis results even more compelling. Use it to explain complex component information in an easy way.

Save your analysis results systematically as a pdf measurement report and share it with your colleagues and customers.
GOM Volume Inspect Pro in action
Visual inspection of a rechargeable battery
Goal: Inspect critical components of a rechargeable battery to check it for defects.
Solution: After scanning the battery with a computed tomography system, the CT data is evaluated in GOM Volume Inspect Pro. The software creates digital sectional views at any given point on the battery. You can customize the image details and contrast, which reveal even minute details and material differences in superb quality. Typical problematic areas near the anode overhang, tramp material or defective welding points are also detected without fault.
Metrological evaluation of geometrical elements and defects
Goal: 3D inspection of an injection-molded part with a rubber ring.
Solution: The CT and CAD data of the part are imported into GOM Volume Inspect Pro. You can conduct a target/actual comparison and wall thickness analysis in the software to evaluate component quality and to optimize tooling, if necessary. The software visualizes dimensional variations in a color profile which displays shrinkage and warpage in distinct colors. GD&T evaluations for the component – including its internal structures – and extensive reporting complete this inspection.
Detailed defect inspection of an injection-molded part
Goal: Detailed defect inspection for inclusions and voids.
Solution: To ensure strict quality requirements the injection-molded part is inspected for inclusions and voids and subjected to an in-depth metrological evaluation. When it comes to inspecting internal structures, GOM Volume Inspect Pro offers dedicated measuring tools that analyze the porosity of your component, its defect dimensions and their distance from the outer shell or CAD. Tolerance ranges for their specific classifications can be applied.
What our customers say
"From my point of view, GOM Volume Inspect – compared to other CT software packages – is the leader in the measurement of freeform surfaces. Since implementing the software, we have been able to precisely analyze the surface profile, for example of very small radii, during GD&T inspection, and execute a tolerance comparison (target/actual comparison). Elements that were previously unmeasurable for us can now be analyzed and measured in a comparably simple way."
Bernd Föller, Team Leader Measurement Laboratory at ODW-ELEKTRIK, Germany
“When we must qualify new parts, we use computed tomography and GOM Volume Inspect for metrological evaluations of incoming plastic parts and, in some instances, also for die-cast parts. We used to measure the parts with a CMM that was equipped with auxiliary devices. It took us up to two days to measure 30 to 40 measuring points. Depending on the complexity of the part, it now takes only two to three hours to inspect the part with GOM Volume Inspect and we obtain much more detailed information about the component."
Wilhelm Stehle, Group Leader Metrology for Parts at Testo SE & Co. KGaA, Germany
