  • Publication number: 20200376555
    Abstract: A method for the additive production of a component, wherein a plurality of layers made in particular of a powder-like material is provided in succession and each material layer is scanned by an energy beam according to a specified component geometry. A component section already produced and/or the respective material layer provided and/or of a work platform on which the component is constructed is additionally heated. For at least one material layer, the temperature distribution on the surface on which the material layer is provided and/or the temperature distribution on the surface of the layer provided is measured. During the scanning process of the material layer, the energy quantity introduced by the energy beam is varied as a function of the temperature distribution detected on the surface on which the layer is provided, and/or as a function of the temperature distribution detected on the surface of the layer.

  • Patent number: 10282872
    Abstract: A method is provided for reducing noise in a tomogram and/or volume rendering of at least one object. The noise can occur when scattered radiation artifacts are corrected. At least one tomogram that is affected by scattered radiation and at least one preliminary tomogram that has been corrected by a defined correction method are produced from a plurality of projection image datasets that are affected by scattered radiation. The noise emerging when scattered radiation artifacts are corrected may be reduced by selectively smoothening the noise using a filter based on an edge contour of the at least one object, which contour is rendered in the tomogram that is affected by scattered radiation.

  • Patent number: 9778359
    Abstract: A method for the ultrasound check of a test object involves moving a test probe along a test probe surface and sending ultrasound impulses into the test object by the test probe. Respective echo signals corresponding with the emitted ultrasound impulses are received by the test probe. An image of a predetermined test region of the test object is prepared on the basis of an overlapping and averaging of amplitude values of the received echo signals by a data processing unit. The respective position of the test probe when sending the ultrasound signals and/or when receiving the corresponding echo signals is captured by a capturing unit. The respectively captured positions of the test probe are considered when creating the image of the test region of the test object.

  • Patent number: 9329155
    Abstract: A technique is provided for determining an orientation of a defect present within a mechanical component using at least one ultrasonic head that applies ultrasonic signals to the mechanical component starting from various measurement points. Echo ultrasonic signals reflected by a point to be analyzed present within the component back to the measurement points are received by the same or a different ultrasonic head. A data processing unit analyzes the received echo ultrasonic signals as a function of a sound emission direction between each measurement ping and the point to be analyzed for determining the orientation of the defect. A distance between the measurement point and the point to be analyzed is calculated for every measurement point as a function of a signal propagation time between the point in time of emitting the ultrasonic signal and the point in time of receiving the echo ultrasonic signal reflected by a defect.

  • Patent number: 9263164
    Abstract: A method and a device produce X-ray images of objects, according to which artifacts caused by scattered radiation are corrected. To this end, a modulator field is used, that can be moved from a first position to a second position, thereby enabling modulator field areas with small and relatively large X-ray attenuation coefficients to be interchanged. An initial amplitude-modulated projection of the object is respectively produced in each of the two positions, and a scattered image associated with the projection is respectively calculated. This is especially suitable for rapid CT scans.
