Closing event iXCon

We are pleased to invite you to the closing event of iXCon – our imec.icon research project on Industrial X-ray CT for high throughput quality control – taking place on November 26th in Gent.

Currently, 3D volumetric quality control is sample-based and offline. The lack of in-line solutions causes batches of products to be taken out of the production process as a quality precaution, and as such a significant waste cost occurs in many sectors.

To overcome challenges related to process control and false rejects, the iXCon research partners have developed a breakthrough in non-destructive in-line detection of product defects.

iXCon’s smart combination of flexible hardware and intelligent software has resulted in three successful use cases and a step-up technology for implementation in sectors such as agro-food, product manufacturing, process monitoring and 3D printed materials.

At the iXCon closing event we’ll present to you the research results and use cases.


Hoping to see you there.
The iXCon consortium
