Industrial CT Scanning Macroplastic Vibratory Welds & Interior Profile

Analyzing Vibratory Welds & Interior Profile of Macroplastics

Some of the benefits of using our 450kv vault over our 225kv cabinet include:

More energy for penetrating larger and higher density objects
Larger working volume
Bigger weight capacity

This post highlights the benefits of a larger working volume compared to our 225kv cabinet. While a part like this manifold may fit in the cabinet, fixturing the part for optimal CT angles without interfering with the ceiling, side walls, or detector would be nearly impossible.

Additionally, the 17 inch detector coupled with advanced scanning techniques allows for a reduction in the amount of scans to capture the entire part. This project required just three scans, while in our 225kv cabinet it would require at least seven.

The entire interior profile of the manifold is imaged, and all vibratory welds can be analyzed for leaks, penetration, and profile.


CT Scan to .stl for CAD Comparison & Reverse Engineering

CT scan data can be converted to .stl or other formats to be used for CAD & dimensional analysis, reverse engineering, mold flow, or FAE. These examples demonstrate a direct Part to CAD profile comparison with cross sections and deviation points.

Complex alignments & GD&T can be programmed for automated inspection.
