Inspecting castings is usually very time consuming and costly. Industrial CT scanning is an ideal alternative for full metrology purposes, of components for both the external and internal geometries. Jesse Garant & Associates provides industrial CT scanning services (3D x-ray), using industry leading technology. With 3D x ray, the inside of a casting can be seen to find a defect, crack, void, hole or even porosity. A measurement of the porosity can also be easily determined. Metal castings are typically prone to porosity because of cooling processes, transitions between thick and thin walls and material properties. Traditionally to determine the porosity, destructive testing would be necessary. CT scanning uses 3D x-ray (a NDT method), which can determine the locations and sizes of voids without damage to the part.
