What is Micro CT?
Micro CT is a term used in the CT scanning industry to identify Computed Tomography (CT) systems that have a resolution relevant to the micron scale length. This differentiates from a CT scan system that may have resolution on the order of 100s of microns or millimeters. A Nano CT system, similarly, has a resolution below about 1 micron.
What is Industrial CT Scanning?
Industrial CT scanning is an x-ray method used to capture the external and internal details of an object in 3D space. Industrial CT scanning can be used on a variety of metals, materials, welds, bonds and sub-components of an object. Typical deliverables of an industrial CT scan are X, Y, Z slices of the object at specified intervals, as well an executable model of the object which can be sliced in any direction and the contrast histogram manipulated to highlight various materials. More information on Industrial CT can be found here.
Micro CT is used to inspect additively manufactured parts for residual powder and internal features.
Micro CT allows our aerospace customers to inspect the internal components of a precision part without disrupting or destroying evidence.
Internal crack detection and porosity analysis for castings. Weld penetration and quality of solders.
