Exploring 3D Scanners And 3D Measurement Technologies standard

Excerpt from wevolver.com article here.   3D measurement technologies and 3D scanners are taking the manufacturing, NDT and quality inspection sectors by storm. For example, according to Zion Market Research, the 3D scanning manufacturing market alone will reach $5.06 billion by 2022. And for good reason. 3D scanners, which capture the shape, geometries, textures and colours of objects in the real world, bring that data into the digital realm. 3D scanning equipment supplier Creaform has put together information to help you get started in understanding metrology and how 3D measurement solutions can improve your product development, NDT inspections, and quality control processes. How 3D measurement works There are two main types of 3D measurements processes: contact and non-contact. Contact 3D measurement solutions probe objects through ...

Using CT Scanners for Industrial Projects standard

Excerpt from original manufacturing.net article A CT scanner gives you the ability to “see through” a solid object–once thought to be a tool of the future –but the technology is here today, and more widespread and accessible than you may have thought. Until recently, the technology of CT imaging was only available for use in medical settings. Over the last several years using CT scanners for industrial projects and manufacturing has opened up myriad opportunities never before available. CT, or Computed Tomography, is now commonly used in various industrial metrology settings, both in the lab and online or inline for product evaluation and packaging integrity assessment. The main advantage is that it allows the inspection of a part’s interior structure or a ...

3D Scanning Technology helps preserve Neil Armstrong’s Spacesuit image

Neil Armstrong's historic Apollo 11 spacesuit has been painstakingly restored by the Smithsonian Museum, with the help of 3D optical scanning and CT scanning. The restoration took place ahead of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission launch and used technology unavailable when the Apollo 11 crew flew to the moon in July 1969. The spacesuits worn by Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin & Mike Collins have been kept at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington DC since their return, but time has taken its toll on the historic garments. The restoration work began in 2015, with the team beginning work on the gloves of the suit. X-ray images recorded the suit's condition and allowed the inner parts to be ...

CT scanning in quality inspection – detecting potential problems standard

Detecting potential problems in the quality and integrity of a part. Here’s an example from our partners at NSI, showing the uses of industrial CT scanning in quality inspection processes to detect potential problems in the quality and integrity of a part. In this case, a small battery has some visible damage to it, which indicates that there might be a potential fault. The case on this battery appears to be swollen with a dome shape to it; not something that you would ordinarily see with these products. This could be a symptom of a larger problem with the battery, which if undetected could cause the battery to leak or burst. Depending on the application the battery is being used with this ...

BMW using CT scanning system for prototype development standard

Original story in The Engineer magazine BMW Group has revealed that it is using an advanced computed tomography (CT scanning) system for prototype development, production and analysis. Until now, vehicles have had to be dismantled for analysis, but CT scanning allows checks to be carried out with the vehicle completely intact. The new X-ray system is based in the BMW Group Pilot Plant in the Research & Innovation Centre (FIZ) in Munich. Commenting on the system Udo Hänle, BMW’s head of Production Integration and Pilot Plant said: “We can now analyse our prototypes in minute detail without having to dismantle them first. Ultimately, this will enable us to integrate new technologies into vehicles even faster. The use of this state-of-the-art system is ...

Benefits of CT Scanning for Aerospace standard

Excerpt from an article www.qualitymag.com Aerospace Inspection with CT Scanning Effective quality management has always been crucial within the aerospace industry. Faulty designs and poorly manufactured parts not only lead to wasted resources and loss of profits, but also jeopardise company reputation and can compromise public safety. The quest for quality has also helped push new innovations in aerospace. Whether that is through the greater usage of advanced materials like super alloys to increase aircraft performance and durability, or the adoption of additive manufacturing, enabling weight savings and space optimisation whilst allowing complex designs to be produced. Industrial CT Scanning for Aerospace Inspection Testing has always been a crucial step in the management of quality, but given the value of many parts, destructive tests ...

Combining CT Scanning with Additive Manufacturing standard

Excerpt from an article www.digitalengineering247.com CT scanning has the ability to provide detailed quality inspection scans of 3D printed parts for many industries. This role in additive manufacturing supplements how CT scanning is already used in reverse engineering activities. Whilst 3D printing enables the production of parts in previously impossible designs, there is a need to inspect them, and that’s where CT scanning comes in. As 3D printing allows the production of complex internal structures, CT scanners provide a unique way to help quality inspect the accuracy of printed parts which will be used in production. Other scanning and metrology techniques are limited to only recording the exterior surfaces of the parts. “We see a lot of interest in printing components because ...

What Are the Benefits of Industrial CT Scanning Services? standard

Industrial CT scanning services use X-ray technology to produce 3D images of the item being scanned. The advantage it has over other 3D scanning methods such as laser scanning or optical scanning is that CT scanning can be used to see the internal details of a part. It is the same technology that has been used for many years in medical imaging. In industry, CT scanning services are typically used for; • Material Analysis • Assembly Verification • Failure Analysis • Internal and External Measurements • Non-Destructive Testing / Inspection • Product Quality Compliance/Screening • Quality Inspection of parts CT Scanning is used in industries including; aerospace, automotive, defence, energy production, and oil & gas. The primary benefits of Industrial CT Scanning services include: Improved product quality Industrial CT scanning services can ...
