High-Resolution Computed Tomography and Its Applications

Applied Technical Services offers High-Resolution Computed Tomography as an efficient, nondestructive testing method for industrial components. Having been utilized for decades in the medical sector, Computed Tomography (CT) Scanning has more recently become a relied-upon testing method for clients working in the industries of aerospace, additive manufacturing, and nuclear power, among other fields. This increase in demand for CT testing has been aided by computer technology advancements that have allowed for high-resolution scans of examined components to be converted into detailed virtual models. During CT inspections, a tested material is rotated on an axis inside a machine where X-ray images are taken. The computer then compiles these images to generate an accurate 3D model, which can then be used to locate internal flaws and take thickness measurements of the original material.
