Metrotom is a computed tomography system for industrial applications such as R&D, production and quality. The system can see inside parts and quantify characteristics normally inaccessible to probing or optical sensors. The same dataset can be used to inspect the structure of material (porosity/wall thickness), measure external features and generate fully surfaced or solid CAD models. X-rays penetrate an object and display it on a suitable detector. The details of the object appear as a 2-D image in varying intensity depending on the geometry and absorption properties. The 3-D image is created by rotating the object 360 degrees along its axis on a rotary table and then converting this data to a 3-D volume model.
