Learning All About Industrial Scanning Services
Ask any well-respected scientist and they’ll tell you that computed tomography (CT scanning or CAT scanning) is one of the top five innovations in the world of medicine in the last 40 years. CT scanning has proven to be so valuable, in fact, that the 1979 Nobel Prize was actually given to its inventors. That’s the power of this medical diagnostic tool.
But CT scanning is no longer used for only examining bodies. It now has a number of uses in the industrial world — particularly when it comes to testing products and medical devices that cannot be cut in half.
So how do industrial CT scanning methods work? And why are they so beneficial? Read on to find out.
So how does 3d scanning work? CT scans and industrial scanners take pictures of internal body structures. While the structures tend to overlap, making it more difficult to make a diagnosis, 3d imaging eliminates overlapping structures, helping to make the anatomy more apparent.
And how does this tie into industrial CT scanning services? It’s a process of reverse engineering. When it comes to life-saving medical equipment and other products, it’s crucial that they work exactly as they supposed to. However, it’s difficult to guarantee that when you can’t exactly take apart a machine to see if its engineering is working properly. But using 3d laser scanning services allows you see several separate layers or components individually. And since 3d laser scanning services are non-invasive, the machinery is intact after the fact.
And statistically speaking, these CT scanning services are shown to reduce product inspection costs and failure analysis costs by as much as 25%. Compared to existing technology, that has a 75% rate of failure and analysis costs, this makes a huge difference in the industry.
