Industrial Scanning In Today’s World

Computed tomography scan

Inspecting items in the process of industrial production has often proved to be a trying and frustrating task. The sheer volume and complexity of different parts, which all interrelate to each other and may have any number of recognizable or unrecognizable errors, has historically made it challenging to perform large or small-scale assessments. This is especially difficult for performing non destructive testing, or NDT testing, on internal parts. Conventional tools cannot perform operations such as porosity measurement or first article inspection on a component that is housed deep within a machine, and would require dozens of hours and thousands of dollars to fully disassemble and inspect. The challenge of how to perform inspections on industrial devices while they are still functional was insurmountable until the advent of industrial CT scanning inspection services.
The fundamental premise of industrial CT scanning inspection services is the application of CT scanning services (which previously pertained to medical assessment and X-ray analysis of the human body) to industrial operations. Essentially, the process combines a multiplicity of different CT scanning systems that create accurate computerized models of various machine parts, to the point where a working representation of the component in question has been realized. The growth of industrial CT scanning inspection services has cut the cost of product inspection and failure analysis between 25 and 75 percent.
This technology has implications for vital industrial operations within American society, such as military equipment production and automobile manufacturing. With 69% of Americans urging increased spending on national security, and a government reluctant to spend money on costly new equipment, our military is increasingly reliant upon emerging technologies that can cut the costs of industrial production. Similarly, American production of light vehicles is set to increase by nearly 50% from 2011 to 2018. Our industrial process will only gain the required edge over our international competitors if we continue to update it with powerful and efficient new industrial practices such as industrial CT scanning.
