Do you sell CT scanning systems?
No. We are strictly a part inspection service company.
How do you achieve high quality results?
As no one single CT system can effectively scan and inspect every part in industry, we utilize a number of systems of various sizes and energies. In the event we are unable to meet your project objectives with one of our many stand-alone CT systems, we have the knowledge and capabilities to customize all of our CT systems to further enhance our service offering.
Are Industrial CT scanning systems portable?
No. Industrial CT systems are not portable due to their size and weight. Weights range from 600 – 2,000,000 lbs
What is the accuracy of the CT scan results?
The scan accuracy varies widely from the machine being used, type of detector, resolution of the detector, type of part, and size of part. For projects requiring accuracies tighter than 5 microns, very detailed scan calibration is required. During the quoting phase, scan accuracy can be provided to the customer prior to any scanning.
What is the resolution of the CT scan?
The scan resolution varies widely from the machine being used, resolution of the detector, spot size of the source, and size of scanning window. However as a guideline, scan resolution ranges between 1 micron to 320 microns. During the quoting phase, scan resolution can be provided to the customer prior to any scanning.
Are your systems calibrated?
Yes. Every system is calibrated on a regular basis for mechanical movement. Due to the number of processing parameters associated with Industrial CT, every scan is also calibrated to ensure the highest accuracy for every project.
How are the parts fixtured during the CT scan?
Since parts are scanned in a Free State environment and reference planes are not needed for the scan itself, most fixturing is performed with low density material. For multiple parts requiring a highly repeatable setup, robust fixtures are developed on a case by case basis.
Can multiple parts be CT scanned at the same time?
Yes. Depending on the customers objective and the resolution required to effectively image out the results, Jesse Garant Metrology Center always attempts to scan multiple parts at once to reduce the overall cost of the project.
Does the part heat up?
Does the scan leave residual radiation in the part?
Can you CT scan a part while it’s in motion?
No. Every part within the scan must remain static or non-moving for the entire length of the scan.
Can you CT scan a part hot or cold?
Yes. Custom scanning processes and fixtures can be developed between the customer and our analysts to obtain a desired environmental temperature.
How long does a CT scan take?
The average scan time for our cone beam systems can typically take 45 minutes and the average scan time for line beam system typically ranges from 2 to 20 hours.
In what file format are the initial results captured?
How large are the CT scan dataset files?
CT datasets typically range from 500MB to 80GB in size
