This technology is new to the metrology field and Exact Metrology is at the forefront of the movement. Industrial CT Scanners allow the inspection of parts’ interiors without any harm or destruction to the parts themselves. No other technology in the world has this type of capability.
CT stands for Computed Tomography and the CT scanning of industrial parts utilizes the same type of technology as the medical field’s CT scanning machines–taking multiple readings from various angles and converting the CT grey scale images into voxel-based 3 dimensional point clouds. After the CT scanner generates the point cloud, Exact Metrology can then generate a CAD-to-part comparison map, dimension the part or reverse engineer the part to suit our customer’s needs.
