Jesse Garant & Associates provides industrial CT scanning services using industry leading technology. By utilizing the services at Jesse Garant & Associates for wax components you can inspect and measure detail inside a component or assembly without taking the feature apart. Also since a CT scanner uses x-ray, it is a NDT which does not need fixturing or any tactile devices. A measurement plan can be implemented for the geometry on the outside and inside of a piece to analyze the part and compare it to the GD&T print. CT scanning equipment can also be useful for security to check a product for a patent infringement. In addition the fit and function can be determined for an assembly in 2D or 3D digitzing format. Analysis results can be made custom for clients who want something specific done.

Generally for metals to determine the porosity would require destructive testing. CT scanning is a ndt utilizing x-ray technology that can detect internal features and flaws without destroying the part. Industrial CT scanning (3D xray) is used to detect flaws inside a part such as porosity, an inclusions or a crack before a failure can occur. Industrial CT scanning software allows you to inspect and locate problem areas inside a component, and find the point of origin of a failure without needing to disassemble the components.
Void inspection can be used to find, measure and analyze voids inside plastic or metal components including steels and titanium. A measurement of each void volume is stored in a chart, and can be exported into an excel file. The CT viewing software allows the user to see where the largest void is (or any void) as well as gives an overall percentage of the porosity. Also to answer a question that has previously been asked, CT scanning has no reaction to highly reflective material such as basic mirrors because the x-rays are at a much higher wavelength and frequency than light. Jesse Garant & Associates (www.jgarantmc.com) is a metrology laboratory offering services for industrial ct scanning (3D xray) a NDT which can be a useful tool for your business.

Industrial CT (computed tomography) scanning is a process which interlaces 2D x-ray images to produce 3D representations of a component both internal and external. Since x-rays are used, a delicate and fragile part can be scanned in a free state environment without the need for fixtures. So long as the x-rays can pentrate the material it can be scanned. Therefore most materials from plastics to materials that are considered refractory such as brass or copper can be scanned and analyzed. Measurement can be performed on the CT dataset. CT scanning allows you to inspect, and measure internal components of an assembly to check feature detail or verify the piece geometry. This can help analyse and repair the molds that have been used to create them. Jesse Garant & Associates (www.jgarantmc.com) is a metrology laboratory offering services for industrial ct scanning (3D xray) a NDT.

In the racing world, composite parts in the engine block are becoming the idealized vision for the future. Depending on the ratio of composite materials, it’s use would reduce the weight of the car significantly allowing for reduced lag by weight and replacing parts such as the engine valves would allow the car to achieve higher speeds since there is a higher stability point with composites as compared to the tradition steel material. Composite parts are also used in areas of industry such as aerospace, defense, and telecommunications sometimes for similar reasons. Problems that may occur in the manufacturing process of composites are defects such as porosity which if unnoticed may lead to a malfunction earlier on than expected. If the part is located in an important part of the machine or vehicle and while in use it snaps due to the interior porosity in a certain area, the results can be deadly. 3D x-ray industrial CT scanning can be a useful method for quality control and inspection because it will allow you to see any internal defects and from there you can make adjustments to the manufacturing process accordingly before going into mass-production. This can be a huge cost-saver.
Along with this, CT scanning can also generate a CAD model for any part scanned which can be used for comparison to other scanned parts or used to compare several manufacturing processes.

Cork is a natural occuring substance found on the outer layer of a cork oak tree and are found primarily in areas along the Mediterranean Sea. Cork has been used for about 400 years for wine stoppers and it is now becoming a new material for eco friendly products such as cork flooring or modeling. CT scanning can be useful for cork because it can show the porosity content in a chart, 2D slices and a 3D rendered view. Internal components can be seen without destructive testing. Instead of creating a CAD model of the cork product from scratch, a CAD file can be generated from the CT scan.

When clay models are manufactured it is hard to tell what is inside without testing it destructively. Industrial CT scanning can be beneficial for inspecting clay models for internal weak spots such as porosity, inclusions or cracks. This method of inspection is non-destructive leaving the model in tact and untouched. The results will be seen as a generated 3D rendering with 2D slice views at 3 different angles. The internal components can be seen in both views. Also a CAD file can be generated for further analysis in a different program. Another analysis that can be done is Part to CAD which is comparing a scanned object to a CAD file of a prototype or ideal model.

Orthotics is a health profession which focuses on supporting or correcting musculoskeletal problems by designing and implementing orthoses. A direct factor that can cause these problems are the shoes that a person wears everyday. Wearing shoes with the wrong structural support such as high heels or shoes that are pointed can have a great impact on muscles and joints higher up on the body. Industrial CT scanning can help those in the orthotics field by providing them with a CAD file from their first prototype and the daunting task of creating a CAD file from scratch is elimated. The CT scan can also generate a 3D model of the the product and will allow viewing of the internal components as well as the external for quality control and inspection. Also, well known running shoe manufacturers are now using this technology to view the performance of their products over extended periods and inspecting the wear of the foam, lining, sole, etc.
An analysis technique that is available is porosity detection which will show all the voids in the part and may help you develop a product with a longer lifetime or help you choose between a variety of products, if comparing multiple objects.
