From Powder To Promise: ZEISS 3D ManuFACT

Holistic 3D Manufacturing Inspection For Aviation, Medical & Automotive

3D printing processes, also known as additive manufacturing, are increasingly becoming part of industrial production chains. This is especially true in safety-critical areas such as aerospace, medical technology and automotive industries where demanding standards apply. The biggest challenge is to prove the absolute reliability of 3D printed parts.

To tackle this, ZEISS looks to uncover the FACT in 3D Manufacturing. Through its broad portfolio of imaging and measurement technologies, ZEISS is playing an integral role in the following areas of the 3D printing workflow:

  • Materials Characterization
  • Non-destructive Evaluation
  • Reverse Engineering
  • High Accuracy Metrology
  • Data Management and Analysis

To find out more, we invite you to join us for this seminar to enjoy the thought-stimulating talks from overseas speakers who have years of valuable knowledge and experience to share. After each talk, there is allotted time for interactive discussions through the Q&A sessions.


While the event is an exciting view into microscopy, metrology and analytical techniques, it is also a great opportunity to network with leading technologists and researchers.

We hope to see you soon to share our enthusiasm for a future filled with innovation!

    From Powder To Promise. Research and Quality Control Solutions for Additive Manufacturing by ZEISS

    Additive manufacturing techniques can produce complex anisotropic 3D structures. The reliability and performance of the produced parts relies heavily on the resultant microstructure, surface parameters and correct dimensions. These challenge require research and quality control tools to gain insight into these complex structures for a wide range of materials.

    ZEISS offers a broad range solutions from optical inspections of powders, characterization of microstructure to metrology applications and handling the data flow. This introduction will give an overview on the applications and characteristic lengths scales that help to verify part quality and help to understand the production process in order to enable repeatability and reliability.

    Light Microscopy Solutions for Additive Manufacturing – Optical Inspection, Metallography and Roughness and Topography

    Light microscopy solutions address important fields of applications such as optical inspection of powders, of produced parts and pore size and pore size distribution. Moreover, light microscopy solutions are usually the first step within a failure analysis workflow and are suitable for surface roughness and topography measurements. Last but not least, they provide the possibility for optical metrology on small dimensions and thus are an important foundation for qualification of additive manufactured parts.

    Electron Microscopy Solutions for Additive Manufacturing – Powder Characterization, Grain Orientation (EBSD), Compositional Mapping

    Electron microscopy solutions enable high-resolution imaging of critical surfaces (such as powders) and a detailed characterization of microstructures (e.g. using EBSD). In addition, they provide the capability of analytics: composition mapping in order to qualify the material homogeneity.

    Moreover, they are capable of providing 3D Dataset (destructively) that characterize the microstructure and/or distribution of precipitates within a characteristic volume and thus provide critical insights for further improving part quality and reliability.

    X-ray Microscopy for Additive Manufacturing

    Additive manufacturing techniques can produce complex anisotropic 3D structures. The reliability and performance of the produced parts relies heavily on the resultant microstructure from often-proprietary feedstock. These challenges require the tools to gain entirely new insights into these complex structures for a wide range of materials with quick turn-around.

    X-ray microscopy (XRM) supports this effort by delivering maximum 3D information non-destructively, from R&D, to process development, to manufacturing. The presentation will overview the potential and advantages XRM for additive manufacturing through a series of examples highlighting high resolution imaging and unique imaging flexibility.

    CT Inspection & Measurement Solutions for Additive Manufacturing

    Additive manufacturing is a disruptive new technology which has a strong influence on current production processes as well as for the methods used for quality assurance. A big benefit of the new technology is that the manufactured structure can be much more complex. There are nearly no limitations because of the limited capability of machining tools, so the structure follows the feature requirements.

    To measure these complex structures can be a challenge with conventional metrology systems because tactile and optical systems are not able to reach all the outer and inner part areas. This is where the advantages of Computed Tomography (CT) come in. With data of CT systems, a virtual part can be calculated. The precision of the virtual part is so high, that it can be used for metrology purposes. Additionally, the virtual part can be used to assure that the printed structures have no bigger defects and no granulate residuals left in its cavities.

    In other applications like in the plastic or aluminium casting industry, additive manufacturing technology is used to shorten the prototype phase of casted or injected parts. Prototypes are available in shorter time. Also in this application, it is necessary to understand how precise the parts are, to give the right feedback to the designer.

    In the future, CT technology will prove quality and will help to display the advantages of additive manufactured parts worldwide.

    3D Scanning Solutions for Additive Manufacturing

    Additive manufacturing refers to a process by which digital 3D design data is used to build up a component in layers by depositing material. While 3D printing tends to get all the glory when it comes to news headlines and discussions about innovative technologies, it is actually 3D scanning that currently has the most practical applications. There is a close and complementary relationship between the two, in part because one is essentially the reverse process of the other.

    Additive manufacturing brings a digital concept into the real world, while 3D scanning converts a physical object into a digital format. Aside from that, it also used nowadays to verify the accuracy of the actual 3D printed part from the nominal. These are a few of the numerous benefits that we can get from the latest sensor technology - an area where ZEISS provides fast, intuitive and highly precise 3D scanning data.

    Quality Data Management Solutions

    All machines and devices will be interconnected in the future. One of the challenges in the Industry 4.0 ecosystem is the handling of the huge amount of data - from project management, design, prototyping, serial production, quality control. Every bit of data and information is so crucial that not managing them properly can lead to unhealthy high levels of cost.

    ZEISS PiWeb combines the quality data of multiple measuring systems to create dynamic, graphic measurement reports. It enables measuring technology, production and quality management to easily access all measurement reports anytime, anywhere. It is the best-in-class graphical reporting system which instantly translates quality or process data into valuable insights.

    The presentation will explain the concept behind PiWeb, how it works and practical examples on how we can manage and utilize our quality data constantly and pro-actively to execute manufacturing processes in a much more defined manner.
