CT Scanning- Why use it? Where do you apply it? What is it?
What can we offer?
- 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.
- Ultimately including CT scanning is one of the solutions we can apply in the data capture process, it provides our clients with the best opportunity of applying the correct technology for the job.
Why use CT Scanning?
- CT Scanning give us 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.
- 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.
Where do we usually apply CT scanning technology?
- Non-destructive inspection
- Quality inspection or parts as part of a quality control process
- Non-destructive failure investigations
What is CT Scanning?
Industrial CT (computed tomography) scanning uses X-ray equipment to produce internal and external 3D representations of a part. It can be used for internal inspection of components in many engineering sectors.
