NVision Now Offers Industrial CT Scanning

March 28, 2011

COPPELL, TX– NVision's Engineering Service Division is now offering industrial computed tomography (CT) scanning for reverse engineering and full inspection of components.

Industrial CT scanning is a process which utilizes X-ray equipment to produce 3-D representations of both internal and external components.

“CT scanning is typically utilized when a customer’s requirements exceed the capabilities of laser scanning,” says Steve Kersen, NVision's vice president of sales and marketing. “For example, it’s extremely useful for accurately modeling or inspecting the internal geometry of transparent materials, which would be obscured for laser scanners, or for detecting hidden flaws in plastic moldings and castings.”
