We’ll outline the key features of Laser Radar, its ability to inspect almost any material, colour or surface texture and how it easily interfaces with most common Read more...

Webinar Wed. April 6 (4PM CET) – Micro Computed Tomography inspection of AM (additive manufacturing) parts

CT Webinar

Wed, Apr 6, 2016 – 14:00 GMT | 15:00 BST | 10:00 EST | 19:30 IST | 16:00 CEST Do you have 100% confidence in the failure-free operation of your AM parts? Micro Computed Tomography will tell you … Metal Additive Manufacturing (AM) is frequently used today to produce automotive or aerospace components that require 100% failure-free operation. Complex product designs use minimum amounts of material to lower component weights without sacrificing on structural integrity. AM also allows us to produce parts with complex internal structures (e.g. Read more...
