What is x-ray micro-CT
Micro-tomography, an X-ray imaging technology, runs throughout the life cycle of a component, from its development to its market launch. This test and inspection technology helps reduce development time by providing a lot of information, both structural and dimensional, in a non-destructive way. Microtomography also makes it possible to inspect and control components during the production phase, before they are launched on the market.
Microtomography, an X-ray imaging technology, offers the possibility of viewing the interior of a material or component without destroying it. Microtomography has become the main non-destructive 3D imaging technology. It is widely used in materials science but also for the characterization of all types of industrial components and assemblies.
Microtomography is the most powerful technology to perform a rapid, non-destructive and detailed examination of the internal and external structures of a sample, a component or even an industrial assembly. From a rapid scan by microtomography, a digital 3D representation of the sample is created and this allows easy evaluation of all its structural and dimensional aspects.
