Industrial CT Scanning

What Is Industrial Computed Tomography

Industrial CT scanning is a new technology in metrology to measure in three dimensions. Therefore, it is different from other forms of metrology (CMM and vision systems) because of its ability to inspect the inside of a part. As a result, CT Scanning is an effective way to perform non-destructive testing (NDT) on the internal features by using x-rays to scan the interior dimensions.

Benefits of Industrial CT Scanning

CMMs and vision systems have their benefits and weaknesses due to their capabilities when it comes to measuring certain types of parts. Silicone parts are flexible and prove to be difficult to inspect using a touchprobe on a CMM. In addition to touchprobes altering the part, vision systems and CMMs cannot always reach an internal feature unless the part is disassembled or cross-sectioned. Therefore, industrial CT Scanning is an alternate method when it comes to inspecting these types of parts. Some of the benefits of CT Scanning include:

  • Don’t have to cross-section parts
  • Save money by not creating a fixture for the part
  • Measure internal and external features
  • Quickly validate internal and external dimensions
  • Easily compare part-to-CAD
