Computed tomography

  • 10-Apr-2012 04:49 EDT


Industrial computed tomography (CT) machines produced by Wenzel add dimensional accuracy to images and enable engineers to better understand or repair a component or an assembly. A modern CT system can measure and examine both the inside and outside of a part in detail, measuring single- and multi-material assemblies, isolating individual components of different densities, and analyzing the material flow in plastic and composite parts. With CT, engineers can capture the part's shape and dimensions, density, material flow, and any porosity, cracks, or inclusions. Data is stored in a Voxel, or a 4-D pixel. Engineers then can perform inspection, non-destructive testing, archiving, reverse engineering, and investigation at any time; archived data can be re-analyzed in the event of a field failure to provide correction.
