Integrating Computed Tomography into Product Development

Product development can be a lengthy process, even if you’re building on an already existing product. By the time your product is ready to go, you’ve put considerable effort, time and money into making it just right. But how do you know if it’s as right on the inside as it looks on the outside? Scanning with x-ray tomography allows you to assess potential flaws and assembly issues before it ever reaches your customers.

X-ray tomography allows you to easily analyze and measure:

  • Wall thickness
  • Cracks
  • Porosities
  • Inclusions (Foreign Material)

Integrating industrial CT scanning into the development process ensures your product meets the necessary standards every step of the way.

Using CT scanning during development gives your product a solid foundation for success while bypassing defects that could be expensive and time consuming to fix after going to market.

What Can Industrial CT Scanning Do?

X-ray tomography can compile through one detailed scan:

  • Nominal to actual comparison
  • Dimensional measurements
  • Defect analysis
  • 4D inspection

CT scanning highlights deviations between the scanned data and its nominal CAD model, allowing you to examine shape, size, and interior details without compromising the part’s integrity. 

Quality Assurance through X-Ray Tomography

Not all products are simple in composition and structure. When developing parts from multiple materials, industrial CT scanning’s high-resolution assembly inspection demonstrates how effectively the materials work together, indicating the overall success of the product.

To achieve maximum performance and quality, non-destructive testing can also detect cracks, inclusions and other imperfections shown through high-resolution 3D imaging, allowing you to make necessary changes before going to production.

The Bottom Line

Your product’s seamless evolution throughout the development process is ensured by the powerful 3D imaging technology offered by x-ray tomography. 

Industrial CT scanning offers credibility and integrity to back a quality product you can confidently stand behind.
