Products involved in Fire and Explosions - Failure Investigations start with a CT scan
Computed Tomography (CT) has become a mainstream tool for forensic investigations. This nondestructive method allows Forensic Engineers to visualize and inspect internal features of a part (such as a battery) without disassembly, thus eliminating the risk of altering the suspected issue/failure or damaging the part.

CT scanning batteries can help identify irregularities in the "jelly roll". In addition, it allows investigators to inspect burnt remains after a fire, helping to get to the root cause of the fire. Click here to go to our Battery page.
Thousands of product recalls happen every year. A major product recall that recently made headlines was for vehicle airbags. X-ray imaging has been a leading technology used to complete inspection and screening of these airbags.
Segmentation can be attained using advanced analysis software (Volume Graphics). Our engineers can post-process CT scan data and isolate individual components of complex assemblies based on density, surface determination and gray scale boundaries.
