Can 3D Engineering Solutions find porosity of a 0.2mm size?

Recently, 3D Engineering Solutions was asked if we could detect porosity of a 0.2mm in a customer casting.

Finding your 0.2mm porosity should not be an issue.

We use Perkin-Elmer 16”x16” Panel detectors with a 0.200mm pixel pitch.  That means that for each of the thousands of x-rays taken of your casting, the individual pixel size is 0.2mm x 0.2mm.  So basically, the panel will see right at a 0.2mm defect.  Beyond this, two other factors work in our favor: magnification and Sub-Voxel Resolution.

Color Mapping Technology for First Article Inspection

As part of our ISO 17025 quality inspection services at 3D Engineering Solutions, we now provide color mapping technology for first article inspection of cast parts, a service many other engineering firms still do not offer.  Color mapping provides qualitative illustrations that show the difference between a scanned object and its nominal design.  We provide different types of analysis for our customers, giving them both quantitative and qualitative data.  This saves time and money in the qualification process and makes it easier for our clients to get parts to their customers.
