The 3D Revolution and Industrial CT Scanning
Most of the time when people hear X-Ray machine or of a CT (computerized tomography) scanning system they usually think of the medical industry or human scanning and rarely think of 3d reverse engineering. 3d reverse engineering is much like the concept of when you x-ray a person, except for it is more like an industrial x-ray where you can examine machines or the inside of mechanical mechanisms.
What 3d Reverse Engineering is Used For
3d reverse engineering can also be referred to as x-ray computed tomography, computerized tomography, laser scanning services, or industrial CT scanning. For industries like aerospace, archeology, Defense and Arms, automotive, forensics, or geology 3d reverse engineering and industrial scanning can be used to detect internal malfunctions, locate a broken piece of the machinery, find item located within a hard exterior shelling, detecting a foreign object, and so many other things. The overall idea is that you can see the insides of a delicate to hard exterior casing with complete ease and without causing any damage to the outer surface.
The Benefits of CT Scanning and 3d Reverse Engineering
- An industrial CT scan can detect material and fragments of various sizes and as small as .5mm in length.
- The imaging can reconstruct a 512 x 512-matrix image in less than a timed second.
- With CT scanning, industrial companies can reduce their new product failure reports and inspection cost by up to 75%.
- There are only around 30,000 working and installed CT scanners worldwide.
What can be done with the findings.
With CT scanning and 3d reverse engineering life size molds can be created. This is particularly great for certain fields like forensics or geology. Being able to create a real life depiction and tangible item that can be viewed or inspected is very useful when trying to fix a problem, or when trying to unearth a finding. In the world of discovery alone using 3d reverse engineering to create casting models has helped with ancient bone discoveries, finding relics, and uncovering lost treasures from centuries ago. In the industrial world, the scanning is very useful for fixing and repairing machinery and preventing part failure due to CT scanning observation and maintenance imaging.
With realtime in depth imaging waiting for analysis or for photo development is a thing of the past. On the spot corrections to industrial products can now be made, or seeing the inside of a weapon to determine it sourcing, or how to properly dig a fossil from the ground without damaging it. Industrial CT scanning and 3d reverse engineering has revolutionized the way we not only see the world, but how we can see the world and all of the layers in between.
