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 ...

Brexit and UK engineering businesses image


There is a lot of debate about what the UK will look like after Brexit. Mike Maddock and Dan Fleetcroft from PES Performance discussed their opinions on the matter in an interview with the Engineering Employers Federation (EEF). The conversation focused around what this could mean for the future of UK engineering companies and what could be done in this time of uncertainty. Mike started the discussion by mentioning what he thought Brexit would mean for companies, “I think it is going to drive more efficiency. At the moment in the automotive sector many parts are taking several trips around Europe before coming back to be fitted to a vehicle. As well as industrial strategy about on-shoring, I think it is going ...

Industry 4.0- The new industrial revolution? image

Engineering Skills Gap

There is talk that UK industry is at the start of a 4th industrial revolution (known as Industry 4.0), but what does this mean? And why are we only just over the start line? Industry 4.0 is the transformation of industrial markets with smart manufacturing and the adoption of technology to maximise productivity and competitiveness. It will lead to greater efficiencies and change the relationship of traditional production methods amongst suppliers, producers, and customers—as well as between people and machines. This will impact a variety of sectors such as: manufacturing, logistics and supply chain, energy, transportation and more. In a recent interview with the Engineering Employers Federation (EEF), the co-owners of PES Performance Mike Maddock and Dan Fleetcroft shared their opinions on the benefits ...

Reasons why you should use 3D scanning image

3D scanning technology can be used as a solution in a large variety of situations, due to its wide range of applications. The data captured from 3D scanning can be used for reverse engineering, quality inspection, planned preventative maintenance, small and large bureau services; the list goes on. The reason why 3D scanning can be used for so many things is due to its accuracy, speed, flexibility and its non-contact nature. All these qualities are needed for our clients. But today we will only be talking about reverse engineering and quality inspection. You can find out more about planned preventative maintenance and bureau service on our website. You may be wondering if there is a specific limit on the volume/size of the item to be scanned? The answer is ...
