3D X-ray Scanning of Cork Products

Cork is a naturally occurring substance found on the outer layer of a cork oak tree and is found primarily in areas along the Mediterranean Sea. Cork has been used for over 400 years for wine stoppers and is now becoming a new material for eco-friendly products, such as cork flooring or modeling. CT scanning can be useful for cork as it can show the porosity content in a chart, in 3D. Internal components can be seen without the use of destructive testing. Instead of creating a CAD model of the cork product from scratch, a CAD file can be generated from the CT scan, which can be used for multiple purposes, such as reverse engineering.
