Industrial CT Scan: Internal 3D Inspection and how it works

Video Information

Similar to the CAT scan X-rays conducted in the medical industry for attaining internal bodily data, industrial CT scanning uses X-ray technology for internal inspection in 3D for the industry. A part is placed inside the CT system on a rotary table, which rotates 360 degrees. An X-ray source shoots through the part, and the detector panel captures several thousands of 2D X-ray images which are re-constructed slice by slice into a 3D model using a software. As a result, the viewer has access to a 3D model of the part with internal data. Commonly used in the aerospace and automotive industry, this nondestructive testing method is quite unique and proves to be useful.
