Computed tomography (CT) is also referred to as industrial x ray and industrial imaging. It is an x-ray methodology yielding 3-dimensional (3D) results by placing an object on a rotational stage between an x-ray tube and x ray detector, rotating the object 360 degrees and capturing images at specific intervals—such as every degree or every half degree.

In order to render the 3D x ray model of the part or object the series of images is then reconstructed. Using our CT visualization software we can then slice through in any direction to produce the optimal views and images required for your analysis of the internal configuration.

The primary benefits of CT Scanning or industrial imaging are:

  • It’s the only way to get 3D views of the inside of a part
  • It’s the only way to get true dimensional data without cutting up or destroying the object.
  • Very little time required to capture data and troubleshoot parts
  • Multiple uses with single scan (void analysis, inspection, volume, porosity, reverse engineering…etc.)

GOM CT - Industrial Computed Tomography

The GOM CT enables the inspection of complex parts based on volumes. All surfaces – even internal structures – can, for example, be used for shape and dimension analyses or nominal-actual comparisons.

GOM Inspect Software - Evaluation Software for 3D Point Clouds

  • 3D inspection
  • Processing of polygon meshes
  • Communication of measuring results

In contrast to conventional tactile coordinate measurement techniques, a CT acquires all surface points simultaneously—on even the most complex objects. This includes all hidden features like undercuts which are not accessible using other non-destructive measurement methods.

Benefit from both advantages of industrial CT services — Combine 3D metrology and inspection within one CT scan!
