Don’t let manufacturing faults come back to haunt you, use Nikon CT


As the nights get darker and the days get colder, Halloween approaches… but don’t let hidden defects creep up on you. Computed Tomography pulls the mask off of those frightful errors by revealing internal and external structure, geometry and surface flaws.



This top to bottom scan created by Sergei Kolobov at Nikon Metrology reveals the inside of the office pumpkin. You can see seed clusters as well as the individual seeds as the video flies through the pumpkin.



X-rays aren’t strictly limited to skeletons (or pumpkins…), with Nikon Metrology’s CT contract inspection services, anything that requires CT analysis can be scanned at a local Nikon Metrology inspection facility.

Computed Tomography (CT) is the answer to the question: how do you know what is inside of something, without destroying it? Although pumpkins are relatively inexpensive and produced with the sole purpose of being destroyed, this pumpkin perfectly demonstrates what Nikon CT offers.

These fascinating Halloween themed scans, created by Sergei Kolobov, X-ray and CT Engineer at Nikon Metrology illustrate how CT technology can be applied to great effect, in almost any application.



With a legacy of more than 30 years in X-ray and CT, Nikon Metrology has extensive experience and knowledge which is offered to clients in the form of inspection consultancy services.
