Instead of capturing a point cloud like visual scanning technologies, multiple X-ray images are taken and combined to form a voxel data set. A voxel is a volumetric pixel or volume element, and because it effectively uses density (x-ray attenuation) to distinguish parts, full assemblies can be scanned without disassembly! So you can capture data on internal stressed components in their assembled state. Solids, liquids and gases can be distinguished from each other as well.
3D Engineering Solutions features Nikon’s XTH 450kV micro-focus CT with patented technology that allows the smallest spot size available in this size of machine. Highest accuracy with power enough for larger/denser parts including difficult Aerospace materials.
Also featured is the Nikon 225kV micro-focus metrology grade CT with established MPE values per VDI 2630 guaranteeing accuracies for critically toleranced components.
