Industrial CT Scanning Fine Mesh Filters

Resolution depends on proximity to the x-ray source, so a small part with fine detail like this filter was no match for our Nikon XTH 225 ST Industrial CT Scanner.

We’ve been receiving a variety of filters – large canister assemblies, urethane, carbon, and micro-mesh filters like this – from all over the US including Michigan, Wisconsin, and California.
