3D imaging means different things to different people. While 3D imaging has been around in some form for decades, technological advances have brought it to new applications, thanks in part to improvements in image sensors, standardization of interface technologies and increased demand for new solutions for more complex imaging needs.
Inspection is a critical element of any product development. In addition to dimensional inspection, evaluating products increasingly involves the inspection of free-form surfaces that are not relevant to the function.
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. announced an affordable, yet sophisticated and easy-to-use X-ray detection platform, designed to enable food processors to meet the global demand for more thorough inspection for product contamination.
Analysis of medical device materials takes place during all stages of their design and use, from initial fabrication and prototype development to examination of the device or surrounding tissues after it has been removed from the patient.
