With a Metrotom 6 scout, users obtain a complete 3D image for GD&T analysis or for nominal-actual comparisons. The CT scanner excels in digitizing small plastic parts.

The combination of a 3k detector and 225 kV x-ray enables the Zeiss Metrotom 6 scout to provide high-contrast, high-resolution measurement results and exceptional sharpness of detail. As a result, even the smallest defects in the part become visible and can be analyzed.

To showcase the ability of Exact Metrology’s CT scanning services, powered by the Metrotom 6 scout, a scan was done on a medical stent. This stent, with a diameter of only 1 mm, was measured within a 5 micron resolution. Thus, Exact Metrology inspectors were able to evaluate critical features with amazing precision.

CT scanning provides several benefits, including that it requires very little time to capture data and troubleshoot parts and that it offers multiple uses with one scan (void analysis, inspection, volume, porosity, reverse engineering, etc.). A CT acquires all surface points simultaneously—even on complex objects. This includes hidden features, like undercuts.

With its ability to see data layer by layer, CT scanning permitted Exact Metrology inspectors to see any possible defects/details on the stent.
