NDT Testing CT Scanning as a Better Option

Non destructive examination

Non Destructive Testing, or NDT testing, has come a long way in recent years. In the past, the majority of industrial part inspection has been carried out through three different methods:

  • Touch Probe (CCM)
  • Line of Sight 3D Scanning (white light or laser scanning)
  • 2D X-Ray Inspection

These methods are effective in an NDT test but each has pitfalls: the speed of results, potential of part damage, and lack of accuracy of the internal part data.

The future of the NDT test lies in Computed Axial Tomography, or CAT/CT scanning. Tomography scanning is the process of generating a 2-dimensional image of a slice or section through a 3-dimensional object. You may be familiar with the use of CT scanning in hospitals to create an internal image of the body. I
