Applications of Industrial CT Scanning – Analyses
There are many different routes users are able to access with industrial CT dataset for extensive part analysis. The most common types of analysis include the following:
Porosity Analysis – Industrial CT scan results can locate internal and external part failures, such as porosity and inclusions. These defects can be located, measured and color coordinated according to project requirements and tolerance.
Wall Thickness Analysis – Industrial CT scan results can analyze the distribution of material within a part. This can assist users in identifying areas prone to weakness.
Reverse Engineering – Industrial CT scan results can provide an intermediary CAD file in point cloud or polygon format. The data can be exported in different formats for ease of manipulation and use.
Part to CAD Analysis – Industrial CT scan results can be compared against part CAD file to identify any deviations from initial design.
Part to Part Analysis – Industrial CT scan can be conducted on multiple identical parts to identify any deviations.
Dimensional Analysis – Industrial CT scan results allow users to access internal and external part geometry. These results can be used for multilpe different applications including GD&T programming, coordinate measurement, First Article Inspection reports and dimensional requirements for PPAP and AS9102.
Composite Analysis – Industrial CT scan results assist users in evaluating the internal structure of composite material, non-destructively.
Failure Investigation – Industrial CT scan results can be used to evaluate internal failures, such as structural integrity, cracks, deviations from initial design, foreign material and porosity.
Pre-production Inspection – evaluation, verification and qualification of industrial parts
Production Inspection – analysis for repeatability and consistency
