Comprehensive (Automated) Inspection of Porosity and Geometry using Computed Tomography (CT)
Computed tomography (CT) has changed the world of industrial quality control. As scanning time has decreased, the amount of information that can be retrieved via automated inspection has increased. Today’s modern industrial CT software uses sophisticated metrology and analysis algorithms to find pores and the local surface for improved measurement accuracy. In this presentation, we will demonstrate how to generate a single universal quality description of a part using standard analyses, e.g., coordinate measurement, nominal/actual comparison, wall thickness, and porosity/inclusion. The shown methods represent an efficient and cost-saving technology for first article inspection, product life cycle management, and of course development and production processes.
