Industrial CT Scan of 26″ Tire Assembly

 In Case Studies, X-Ray & CT

Large Volume High Resolution Scanning

Haven Metrology’s first of its kind 450kv Industrial CT vault offers the industry’s best resolution, weight capacity, working volume, and detector size and speed. Combining these strengths allows us to non-destructively evaluate large, complex components like this 26″ tire assembly.

This is a single volume scan of the entire part with a variety of interesting takeaways.


MesoFocus 450kv X-Ray Source

The MesoFocus 450kv x-ray source allows us to perform large volume Industrial CT scans with incredible resolution.

Below we have visualized the valve stems and components. An inclusion is witnessed within the tread. The belts are clearly defined for form and spacing.

Unroll Cylinders for Planar Analysis

Using the “Unroll” function in Volume Graphics we can view an entire cylindrical cross section in a planar view, offering more context compared to a single cross-sectional slice.

Parallelism of the belts can be measured.

The balancing weights can all be viewed simultaneously.

Serving clients across the globe, Haven Metrology is an ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accredited, ASNT & NAS410 certified, and ITAR registered and compliant contract inspection lab using CMMs with PC-DMIS & Calypso, 3D Scanning with PolyWorks, Industrial CT Computed Tomography & X-Ray Radiography with Volume Graphics, Reverse Engineering with Geomagic Design X, High Accuracy Vision services, and a wide variety of hand measurement tools.
