Inspect-X 5.0 enables higher resolution scans for an improved insight into defects

Nikon Metrology introduces Inspect-X 5.0, the latest release of the acquisition and analysis software for Nikon Metrology’s range of X-ray and CT systems. Inspect-X 5.0 is now a native 64-bit application and supports a new 16Mpixel flat panel detector enabling much higher resolution CT scans. Another new feature is the Golden Image Comparison tool, enabling operators to intelligently and immediately make a pass/fail sentence on the part being inspected. Introducing an all-new 64-bit platform Inspect-X 5.0 is now anative 64-bit application,enabling the Read more...

Archaeologists use Nikon Metrology CT Scanning System to reveal how the first Britons lived.

Archaeologists digging on a Norfolk beach found stone tools that show the first humans were living in Britain much earlier than previously thought. Scientists at the Natural History Museum are now able to utilize CT scanning for inspection of ancient fossils that are able to tell them when humans actually arrived in Britain. A spectacular haul of ancient flint tools has been recovered from a beach in Norfolk, pushing back the date of the first Read more...

3-D CT inspection offers a full view of microparts

Manufacturers are beginning to use a popular medical procedure—computerized tomography (CT) scanning—to inspect the insides of microparts. “We have equipment that scans microparts and gets excellent external data, but it does not give internal data. That is where CT scanning comes in,” said Larry Carlberg, regional service bureau manager for GKS Global Services, Minneapolis, which offers reverse-engineering and inspection services, Read more...

Dimensions in Medical Metrology

From optical comparators to computed tomography, metrology equipment is adapting to aid advances in medical manufacturing Medical devices extend life or make living more comfortable. Driven by advances in machining, new devices are getting smaller and more complicated. Other devices, while not getting smaller, are increasing in demand, meaning production volumes are increasing. From looking into parts more deeply, combining sensors for more Read more...
