Get the insight inside with CT inspection for automotive OEMs

CT inspection of metal casting.

With shorter lead times and constant cost pressures, OEMs are adopting CT inspection to analyse internal structures without the disassembling of countless prototypes.     Today’s automotive OEMs and suppliers face ever shortening lead times for introducing new products at a lower cost. Consequently, fewer prototype iterations are required and destructive testing is no longer wanted. Tactile probing and laser scanning is well suited to external inspections, but CT inspection makes analysing internal structure and dimensions just as Read more...
