Industrial 3d scanner

Radiography is more a part of your life than you would expect. It has been used in the medical field for many years now to perform x-rays on broken bones, or to view the internal organs of patients. Indeed, the first clinical CT scanners were installed between 1974 and 1976. The original systems were dedicated to head imaging only, but “whole body” systems with larger patient openings became available in 1976. CT became widely available by about 1980. There are now about 6,000 CT scanners installed in the U.S. and about 30,000 installed worldwide.

But that isn’t all that radiography technology is for — the technological and engineering fields also use it. Industrial digital radiography is used in many industries in order to diagnose, analyze, and examine things like machine parts, equipment, and the functioning on very small and intricate machinery. The approach of this kind of technological radiographic functioning is called “industrial CT scanning.”

Companies that specialize in this service tend to have both 2D and 3D x-ray technology — often, 2D images are taken extremely quickly and combined to make a 3D image. When you consider that X-rays can be taken as fast as 30 frames per second, it is not terribly hard to imagine at all. Resolution size can be so precise and small that it is possible to examine practically microscopic cracks or other types of fissures. Part size is not an issue. Parts ranging from as small as .5mm in length to parts as large as 660mm in diameter x1m in length can be digitally x-rayed.

Basically, photons are energized through the source, and the results are captured on a digital detector, when they are looked at after they pass through the object you might be examining. 3D imaging is very precise, and the main reason it is so beneficial is because it allows you to look at things non-invasively. Instead of taking things apart at the risk of not knowing how to reassemble them, you can easily do simple NDT testing and and industrial x-ray equipment in order to tell what things are, while they move.
