CT Scanning

Industrial CT Scanning is a non-destructive and non-contact method for obtaining internal and external information on an object.

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, 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.
What is CT Scanning?

Industrial CT scanning (or computed tomography scanning) uses X-ray equipment to produce internal and external 3D representations of a part. It can be used for internal quality inspection of components in many engineering sectors.

Why use CT Scanning?
  • Industrial CT Scanning services 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?
  • 3D Metrology
  • Advanced Material Analysis
  • Assembly Verification
  • Failure Analysis (non-destructive)
  • Inspection of metal castings; typically aluminium and steel
  • Internal and External Measurements
  • Non-Destructive Testing / Inspection
  • Product Quality Compliance/Screening
  • Quality Inspection of parts as part of a quality control process
  • Research and Development (R&D)
  • Reverse Engineering
  • Weld Quality Analysis & Verification
