Industrial CT scanning is a unique inspection technology for plastic containers, in order to check and perform measurements of geometry and seal in 3D. Wall thickness analysis is used to examine areas of inconsistent thickness when compared to a predetermined size. Blowmolding of a plastic container is a cost effective process enabling fast production rates with low tool and die cost.
At JG&A Metrology Center, we use industrial computed tomography (CT) equipment to provide our clients with a non-destructive 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 of rotation. The images are reconstructed into a 3D model and can be used for multiple types of analysis offered at JG&A Metrology Center, including void analysis, part to CAD comparison, reverse engineering and more.
JG&A offers the opportunity for potential clients to get familiar with the CT process or have any questions answered during a 20-5 minute webinar. To request a webinar, visit https://jgarantmc.com/webinar/. 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. Furthermore, the client is also educated on how to use the supplied freeware viewing software.
JG&A Metrology center is capable of scanning parts manufactured from one 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 several thousand parts needing inspection. For more information, visit www.jgarantmc.com
