Among the services offered by moldmaker NyproMold Inc. is industrial computed tomography (CT) scanning, a non-destructive technology that uses irradiation (usually X-rays) to produce 3D representations of a scanned object. This enables inspection without disassembly of the object to an accuracy of 5-7 microns, the company says.

The CT scanner rotates the object a full 360 degrees, taking 2D images of all internal and external components every one-third of a degree; roughly 1,200 images are taken during the one-hour scanning time.  These images are then meshed together to create a 3D model which can be used for metrology or assembly analysis. CT scanning enables part-to-CAD and part-to-part comparison, wall thickness analysis, void and inclusion analysis, and reverse engineering.
