Immersive Microscopy - Virtual reality for industrial applications -
ZEISS and arivis are pioneering the use of Oculus Rift's advanced display technology.
At the world’s leading trade fair for quality assurance, Control arivis presents - in cooperation with ZEISS Microscopy - a concept study visualizing 3D image data acquired from ZEISS 3D-X-ray Microscope Xradia 520 Versa in Virtual Reality.
Novel methods in the manufacturing of metals create increasing challenges for quality control.
How can the inner structure of a metal part be examined without destruction?
ZEISS and arivis present the potential of a combination of the latest microscopy methods, such as high resolution X-ray microscopy, and innovative software solutions from arivis.
The novel arivis VR Software solution allows to visualize 3D image data fluently using Oculus Rift VR glasses to immerse into a 3D dataset. Combining these pioneering technologies, users can virtually fly through the sample and inspect the dimensional accuracy as well as microstructural composition. Especially for complex structures the virtual reality offers much better orientation and also better detail navigation to certain areas of interest. Surface properties of walls, cavities or pores within the material can easily be examined and viewed from any angle.
At Control 2016 in Stuttgart, arivis and ZEISS are showcasing immersive microscopy for materials samples. As an example a complex component, manufactured by 3D printing using laser sinter technology, is imaged using high resolution X-ray tomography.

About the conference:
With over 900 exhibitors from 32 countries around the world, Control is the number 1 source of information for all companies that see first class quality as the basis of their business success. At a very early stage, the specialist visitors gain insights into the production and test engineering spheres of the future. In this, Control relies on the transfer of knowledge and technology between research & development and the users in industry.
To achieve this objective in the best way possible, Control works intensively with the pioneering institutions of the sector. Those on board include Fraunhofer-Allianz Vision, Fraunhofer IPA and the German Society for Quality (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Qualität – DGQ). This concentrated know-how is made available to visitors in special exhibitions, theme parks and specialist presentations, thereby generating direct value added for users.
