CT Scanning give us the ability to inspect the internal features of components
3D Optical scanning may not always be the right solution to meet your requirements.
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.
When deciding what data you need to be captured and the ultimate output requirements, our engineering team can help you apply the best technology for the project. 3D optical scanning may not always be the best solution and therefore we would apply CT scanning. The most common projects were 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
We also use this process for reverse engineering or when the part to be scanned cannot be sectioned for data capture and therefore rules out the 3D optical scanning process.
Ultimately by having CT scanning as one of our solutions we can apply in the data capture process, gives our clients 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.
