What is Industrial CT Scanning?

Industrial Computed Tomography (CT) scanning, just like the medical CT for human use, is the process of gathering 2D x-ray slice images and compiling them into a full internal and external 3D digital data set.  The data is then used to solve problems or validate product.

Just to be clear, there are perhaps upwards of 50 different x-ray techniques for various uses, most of which are not commercially deployed or available. For your purposes, we are talking about Computed Tomography scanning industrial products. This is sometimes referred to as x-ray material testing.
The object is placed on a rotary stage with a cone beam, low energy x-ray source which projects a beam of x-rays onto the sample object. A flat panel, x-ray detector on the opposite side of the source collects the data. The data can then be exported into specialized software developed for a multitude of analysis capabilities.

What is a CT Scan?

A Computed Tomography scan or CT scan is a set of voxel data (volume pixels) created from a compilation of 2D slice radiographic images. The result of this compilation is a 3D rendering that allows industrial users to completely analyze the interior and exterior geometry of a part or assembly. The reasons and opportunities for such analysis are engineering and quality driven and grow every day.

Why Choose Industrial CT Scanning?

Industrial CT scanning makes use of computer-processed combinations of many X-ray measurements taken from different angles to produce cross-sectional “tomographic” images (virtual slices) of specific areas of a scanned object. This allows the user to see inside the object without cutting. Since Computed Tomography scans do not rely on line-of-sight to acquire geometry data, there is nothing missing from the scan as in structured light or laser scans.
