Measurement & Inspection

Manual and automated analog and digital gages, instruments, scales, tests and other devices, integrated systems and techniques used to report, record, and manage the data of precise physical dimensions, weight, temperature, pressure, current, voltage or other process value being generated from the forming, fabricating, welding or cutting of material.      

Why Use a CT Scanner?

This technology can inspect the interior structure of injection molded, cast, forged or fabricated parts made from metal, plastic, polymers, composites and 3D printed products, without causing any harm or destruction to the objects themselves. And that’s only the beginning.
