450 kV MesoFocus CT Part 3

In this last blog, I like to show some results of a 3D printed part made of copper. Without being an expert in such manufacturing and testing applications, I can see how the quality check reveals more relevant information by higher resolution.

450 kV MesoFocus CT Part 2

In this post we focus on the focal spot and bring high resolution to the details. High resolution in CT gets achieved by a very small focal spot, a higher magnification, and a well-aligned system with a very accurate rotation axis. Coming back to the

Induction Machines

The early determination of the quality of a motor using CT before further processing would save time, resources, material, and costs, an economic factor that should not be underestimated within the steadily increasing demand for electromobility.

Ceramics Study

Additive manufacturing (AM), also known as 3D printing, is the construction of a three-dimensional object from a CAD model or a digital 3D model. One of the most used AM methods for ceramics is Direct Ink Writing (DIW). Read about the challenges!

Talking about Flat-Panel Detector's Resolution

When we look for the optimal flat-panel detector, it’s not all about the highest possible resolution. Christian Jeuschede explains why we still stick to 139 µm respectively 150 µm pixel pitch instead of 100 µm and what to have in mind when chosing the best fit.

Service Matters

Kathy Scott, Service Sales Director at Yxlon/Comet Technologies USA knows that service matters. With her long experience, she knows service should rate nearly as high in the decision to purchase an inspection system as the system itself.

Understanding Accuracy of Computed Tomography:

One might think a measurement using the same calibrated tool would have the same accuracy regardless of the object being measured. But metrology is more than that, as the whitepaper “Uncertainty of measurement” will show.
