Industrial CT Scanning Automotive

Industrial CT scanning is a versatile technology for automotive inspection, allowing for internal analyses of lighting assemblies, reflectors, and optics, for example. Inspecting highly reflective material such as mirrors is not a problem for industrial CT because x-rays operate at a much higher frequency and shorter wavelength than light.

Industrial CT scanning is a nondestructive testing method which utilizes x-ray technology to produce external and internal 3D representations of components. In its basic form, industrial CT scanning is similar to a medical CAT scan, except that the technology is used to scan industrial components instead of the human body. While medical CAT scans are primarily for visualization, industrial CT scanning can be used for various analyses.

Jesse Garant Metrology Center provides industrial CT scanning services using the latest CT technology to provide our clients with a nondestructive testing method for internal part inspection. Industrial CT scanning is an x-ray technology which allows a part to be scanned in Free State form, with thousands of x-ray images captured through 360 degrees. The images are reconstructed into a 3D model and can be used for multiple types of analysis, including void analysis, part to CAD comparison, and reverse engineering.

After contacting our experienced staff to discuss your internal part inspection requirements, a feasibility study is conducted to pair each project with the right machine.  This allows us to ensure all of the client’s needs are being met at the most cost effective solution. Once the parts have been scanned and analyzed by our experienced staff, a web conference is hosted with the customer to review the results and ensure we have met all project requirements.  The client is also educated on how to use the supplied freeware viewing software.

Jesse Garant Metrology Center is capable of scanning parts manufactured from a single material or multiple materials.  Our cone beam, line beam and planar CT systems can accommodate very small to very large complex parts ranging from .020” in length up to 26” in diameter by 39” in length.  We are pleased to work with clients that only have one part all the way up to clients who require inspection of several thousand.
