3D scanning technology has evolved considerably over the years, evolving from a primarily medical technology (X-raying and CT scanning) to a mainstay of industries as diverse as forensics, aerospace and many more. Reverse engineering and non destructive testing are now easier than ever before. These new feats of metrology have reduced the costs of product inspection and failure analysis by 25% to 75%, and greatly expedited the process of assembly analysis.
Prior to the application of CT scanning to industrial part inspection in 2009, the prime means of inspection were touch probe, line of sight scanning and 2D X-ray inspection. Although each of these technologies had their own strengths and weaknesses, no single one of them was perfect at capturing internal part data. Over time, through the accumulation of metrology equipment and 3D scanning technology, our company established a means by which we could perform large volumes of highly detailed inspection work. By offering internal 3D scanning and x-ray inspection, our company has cornered the market on certain previously laborious processes, giving us the opportunity to research and develop still other applications of this technology.
The industrialization of CT scanning technology comes at a time when data and information have come to constitute a huge force within the industrial economy. Developing nations such as China have increased production by about 8% in December 2014, and total industrial production increased 0.9 points in the course of the last year. These increases in global industrial production necessitate 3D scanning technology that can perform the tasks of failure analysis and production inspection to the greatest degree of accuracy.
