Industrial computed tomography (CT) scanning remains one of the more exotic (read: pricey) technologies when it comes to industrial metrology, and yet most mold manufacturers and the OEMs they serve see absolute value in using it.
For this Throwback Thursday, we take a look at the analyses that have been found to benefit major automakers, tiered suppliers and moldmakers. This feature was published in MMT in August 2011, when CT scanning was still very new to the inspection technology realm. Yet, what is discussed here is still very relevant and educational today. Learn about what CT scanning is, the types of CT scanning available and, last but not least, discover the benefits as revealed when the technology was young.
Few moldmaking companies have invested in CT scanning even today, but many understand its benefits and subscribe to its teachings, which help them build better molds for very discerning markets.
So, take a few minutes to read “Using Industrial CT Scanning to Reduce Preproduction Inspection Costs” and let us know if your company has experience using this technology and how.
Molders offer a moving target for moldmakers to adjust to by producing parts with different cavity pressures.
