Nick Chester, Chassis Technical Director at Renault F1 Team, says :

"Safety and reliability cannot be negotiated in our world and this new partnership gives us the confidence we need to push the boundaries of innovation in both chassis and engine design.

With VGSTUDIO MAX, Volume Graphics offers companies a comprehensive solution for quality control in additive manufacturing. The software identifies the most important 3D printing defects, no matter how complex the shape may be. Users can analyse raw materials such as powders, check the melt pool environment and compare it with CT data, and perform both dimensional metrology and defect analysis on and in the finished part. 

Karl-Michael Nigge, Chief Product Officer at Volume Graphics, explains: 

"For us, Formnext is both a highlight and a must. Industrial CT is perfect for quality control in additive manufacturing. No matter how complex the shape may be, with CT and Volume Graphics software, users can inspect their additive-manufactured components comprehensively. Our VGSTUDIO MAX software is the tool for measuring part geometry and checking for internal defects to ensure quality and safety in additive manufacturing and establish efficient workflows."
