Video: CT Scanning for Mold Inspection
Moldmaker NyproMold describes its experience using computed tomography (CT) scanning to validate precise injection molds.
Industrial CT scanning—computed tomography scanning—can provide a powerful measurement tool for validating precise injection molds. This scanning permits non-destructive part inspection, precisely measuring details both inside and outside of the part the mold produced. Injection moldmaker NyproMold uses CT scanning in its Clinton, Massachusetts facility. In this video, NyproMold personnel demonstrate the scanning technology and describe its benefits.
