X-Ray and CT

Computed tomography (CT) is an imaging procedure that uses special x-ray equipment to create detailed pictures, or scans, of areas inside complex castings or manufactured parts. It is also called computerized tomography and computerized axial tomography (CAT). CT or CAT scanning can be used in a variety of fields from casting and manufacturing to the dental and medical industry.

XT H 225 Industrial CT Scanner

XT H 225 Industrial CT Scanner

For all-purpose X-ray and CT inspection

The entry-level XT H 160 and the versatile XT H 225 systems offer a microfocus X-ray source, a large inspection volume, high image resolution and is ready for ultrafast CT reconstruction. They cover a wide range of applications, including the inspection of plastic parts, small castings and complex mechanisms as well as researching materials and natural specimens.

Applications:

Automotive

  • Electrical connectors
  • Injection nozzles
  • Sensors (e.g. Lambda sensor)
  • LED light pipes
  • Small high-pressure die casting parts
  • DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter)

Aerospace

  • Wax turbine blades
  • Cast turbine blades
  • Crack analysis in components
  • Weld analysis

Plastic injection molding

  • Complex plastic components (e.g. fan)
  • Soft, translucent materials where tactile or optical is no option
  • Ultrasonic welding of plastic parts

Pharmaceutical/medical

  • Medicine dispensers
  • Small instruments
  • Small plastic or composite parts
  • Bone structures

Research

  • Material verification and analysis (e.g. structure, porosity, defects)
  • Paleontology (e.g. bones, skulls, fossils)
  • Geology and soil science
  • Archeology

XT H 450 Industrial CT Scanner

Micro-focus X-Ray and CT system for turbine blade and casting inspection

The XT H 450 system offers the necessary source power to penetrate through high density parts and generate a scatter-free CT volume with micron accuracy. The system is available with a flat panel or a proprietary Curved Linear Array (CLA) detector that optimizes the collection of the X-rays without capturing the undesired scattered X-rays.

This linear detector realizes stunning image sharpness and contrast by avoiding image pollution and associated contrast reduction. 450kV and the CLA are ideal for the inspection of small to medium metal alloy turbine blades and casted parts.
