In-process CT - Ready for production

nikonmetrology CT automation inlineCT

An important challenge to manufacturers is to increase product quality, which can be achieved through 100% part inspection. Traditionally, X-ray Computed Tomography (CT) has been a valuable tool mainly used in research or prototyping labs to evaluate failures or spot defects. A proven engineering tool that was generally considered as too slow to be used on a production line.

That is until now! Recent advances in high-resolution high-flux rotating targets for X-ray sources, coupled with easy automation of CT scanning parameters and analysis techniques allow samples to be scanned, reconstructed and evaluated in under two minutes. This opens the gate to a broad span of automation inspection applications, varying from simple  pass/fail inspection to full in-line automated CT inspection with feedback to the production process.
