Why use industrial CT?
Computed Tomography (CT) systems also known as 3D X-ray or industrial CT are used to record and display volumetric imaging data for different complex materials and objects. Images or slices are captured using digital imaging radiographic arrays or DR at an optimal frequency and position to maximize resolution throughout the 360 degrees around the object. Small digital detector pixel size from linear diode arrays and flat panel arrays as well as focal spots achieved with micro focus x-ray tubes can render a volumetric 3D image at 5 microns resolution or better. Industrial CT is now a mainstream imaging tool that can discern fiber composites, metal castings, metal composites as well as other new alloys and materials created by additive manufacturing or 3D printing. All of these operations are performed via intuitive CT software to assure precise manipulator alignment, exposure, acquisition and reconstruction of the entire set of slices resulting in an image that can be analyzed by the level 3 operator.
What is In Situ CT?
The In-Situ CT system will test material in real life conditions so that detail analysis can be made to characterize failure conditions of novel materials and components. diondo's intuitive industrial CT software will quantify defects and help engineers visualize the improvements required in the manufacturing process by placing the material or component under stress.
Who does CT imaging Help?
Industrial CT Scanning
Industrial CT is non-destructive, dimensionally accurate and provides a complete examination of the internal and external structure of objects. There are two critical applications for industrial CT, 1) Inspection, 2) Measurement. Compared to other inspection methods CT is able to determine defect type, dimension and position even in high complex objects independent from its material. Typical applications are the inspection of plastics, metal additive manufacturing, castings, ceramics and composite materials. Major companies, research institutes, automobile manufacturers and leading OEM's of the automotive and aerospace industry are among our customers. We use a comprehensive, constantly expanding, array of components and functional modules to flexibly respond to special challenges with reasonable effort. We are passionate about providing our customers with imaging solutions and this passion clearly differentiates diondo from our competitors. In addition to the development and production of industrial computed tomography and X-ray inspection systems diondo also offers inspection services on several of their own CT systems. Individual parts as well as small or large batches of parts can be examined. Keeping cost down and excellent quality is important for diondo customers. diondo inspection or rental CT systems are an alternative solution to the investment in an industrial CT system.
The range of CT products that diondo offers provides a multitude of software features for operational integrity, graphics user interface, reconstruction software, digital radiography, technique correction, resolution calculations, filters and diagnostics. In addition to the robust software features for acquisition and reconstruction, diondo offer post processing software that includes batch mode analysis or automated inspection, advanced surface determination, fiber composite material analysis, porosity and inclusion analysis, wall thickness, foam structure, nominal actual comparison, and coordinate measurement.
We collaborate with facility engineers, production managers and operators to find the best available site location in your facility and provide ongoing support for architectural planning including power requirements, production flow, environmental requirements and safety.
The diondo team provides a program manager and support staff to review all aspects of the project. The 3D X-ray system requires X-ray shielding that is safe and effective. We model the room and the placement of the equipment to keep the X-ray facility shielding costs low. We also review the plans to make sure that the Micro CT system and/ or conventional 450 KV system can be productive through careful planning of the scan envelop and payload requirements. diondo provides the best site planning and leaves nothing to chance.
We are dedicated to working with our customers to find the right CT inspection solution. We have a complete line of computed tomography Systems and Services that will meet your production needs. We provide Nano CT, Micro CT, Conventional CT and Linear Accelerator Based CT and DR systems. Whatever your CT requirement may be, diondo will work diligently with you to make the right choice. Additionally we used our experience to demonstrate the imaging capability of your tube and detector combination. We will provide industrial computed tomography scanning of parts so that you have a good start to a quality plan. The information you receive from us will help you quantify your desired results and objectively measure expectations. You can be assured that diondo industrial CT software is the best and the easiest to navigate.

CT Technology and Learning Center
Under the CT Technology tab, we will display information concerning computed tomography and X-ray technology and explain how why it is applicable to achieving the best CT images comes into play. Just click on the topic of choice. We will discuss the development and current best practices. As you know, "CT produces data that can be manipulated in order to demonstrate various [material] structures based on their ability to absorb the X-ray beam. Although, historically [in a medical setting,] the images generated were in the axial or transverse plane, perpendicular to the long axis of the [human] body, modern scanners allow this volume of data to be reformatted in various planes or even as volumetric (3D) representations of structures." Nondestructive testing or NDT CT generally uses the part rotation method to help lower costs and take advantage of highly accurate positioning such is used with CNC machining instead of rotating the gantry. "Another example is archaeological uses such as imaging the contents of sarcophagi or ceramics. Individuals responsible for performing CT exams are called radiographers or radiologic technologists." (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CT_scan) The radiographers provide setup of the object such that it is penetrated by the x-ray beam with a bit count that is sufficient to explore defects or anomalies and develop an understanding of the material makeup. The radiographer optimizes the geometric planes of the object to minimize scatter artifacts and other anomalies or imaging degradation such as blurring, and noise.
