Inspection of Rubber Components Utilizing 3D X-Ray

Inspection of rubber components can easily be performed using industrial computed tomography (CT) scanning. CT scanning requires no pressure or contact to distort the part under inspection. See external and internal features such as porosity, upon conducting a void analysis. Jesse Garant & Associates offers CT scanning services. CT scanning is a NDT method utilizing x-ray to penetrate the material which allows for internal and external analysis of cables. Furthermore, measurements can also be taken to analyze the thickness of coatings, by conducting a wall thickness analysis for example. Cable plugs and connections can be scanned to see how they fit together.

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.

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.
