CT Scanning give us the ability to inspect the internal features of components
CT Scanning provides the ability to inspect the internal features of components. This process is non-destructive allowing key internal parts to be seen in their functioning position and analysed without disassembly; areas where 3D optical scanning can’t provide a solution.
Our engineering team can help you apply the best technology for the project, considering what data needs to be captured and the ultimate output requirements. Where required we would recommend applying CT scanning.
The most common projects where we apply the CT scanning technology will be:
* Non-destructive inspection
* Quality inspection or parts as part of a quality control process
* Non-destructive failure investigations
In reverse engineering projects when the part to be scanned cannot be sectioned for data capture (which rules out the 3D optical scanning process) CT scanning can provide an accurate alternative.
Ultimately including CT scanning as one of the solutions we can apply in the data capture process, provides our clients with the best opportunity of applying the correct technology for the job.
What is CT Scanning?
Industrial CT (computed tomography) scanning is a process which uses X-ray equipment to produce three-dimensional representations of components both externally and internally. Industrial CT scanning can be used in many engineering sectors for internal inspection of components. The key uses for CT scanning are flaw detection, failure analysis, metrology, assembly analysis and reverse engineering applications.
