Validating Additive Manufactured Parts with Industrial CT Scanning

By Jesse Garant posted 08-28-2017 08:03


While additive manufacturing provides many benefits, there can be high variability and increased risk of defects with 3D printed parts. As more industries are relying on this technology, ensuring quality in finished products will be crucial to winning the trust of consumers. Accurate inspection is therefore key to maintaining acceptable dimensional tolerances and identifying defects like porosity.

Industrial computed tomography is the optimal inspection method for inspecting and validating both external and internal features of 3D printed parts. Industrial CT is a nondestructive and non-contact imaging technology that provides quick inspection time and handles a wide range of materials, able to keep up with the rapid pace of additive manufacturing.
