Advantages of Using Industrial CT Scanning

Posted by:

There are many advantages of using CT scanning over traditional techniques such as CMM’s, or 3D (three-dimensional) laser scanning systems using lasers. Some of the main advantages include:

  • Inspection and analysis costs from first article to production are significantly reduced
  • Design requirements for both internal and external components are validated quickly and accurately
  • Development costs are reduced in creating the first CAD model
  • Product quality is improved to reduce the risk of recalls
  • Accuracy is guaranteed by using a new level of CT scanning technology
  • Internal complex ...

Utilizing industrial CT Scanning for Metal Injection Moldings (MIM)

Posted by:

Metal injection molding (MIM) is a process which combines fine metal powders (aluminium, magnesium, steel etc) with a binder agent (various thermoplastics, waxes and other materials) to create a granulated feedstock. The granulated feedstock is then used in a conventional injection molding machine. MIM is limited to relatively small parts and often consist of highly complex geometries. CT scanning is an excellent choice for part inspection for these small, micro parts. Detail on the tiny piece can be measured to examine the ...

Industrial CT Scanning for Aluminium and Lightweight Metals

Posted by:

Generally, to determine porosity for aluminum and lightweight metals, destructive testing would be required. CT scanning is a NDT method, utilizing x-ray technology that can detect internal features and flaws without destroying the part or applying pressure or fixtures to the part. Industrial CT scanning (3D xray) is used to detect flaws inside a part, such as porosity, inclusions or cracks, before a failure can occur. CT scanning allows you to inspect and locate complex problem areas inside a component, ...
