High Energy CT Inspection Service

Jesse Garant Metrology Center has announced the launch of its new high energy industrial CT scanning service. "With this system, the company will be the only private lab in the world to provide this specialized inspection service," said a company spokesperson. "The new capability will transform the landscape for non-destructive testing and support innovation within advanced manufacturing."

The system is the first of its kind that pairs a 3 MeV cone-beam X-ray source with a large format 2k x 2k flat panel digital detector. It will be able to accommodate rapid inspection of mid-size parts, up to 44.5" in diameter by 63" in height. The new capabilities will also directly support the metalworking industry, allowing for feasible internal inspection of castings made from ferrous and non-ferrous materials.

"It is always been embedded in the vision of the company to provide trusted solutions that create meaningful advancements in industry. The new computed tomography system is a huge leap forward for mid-size part validation and feasible high-volume part inspection," said Jesse Garant, President.

The unique system offers multiple advantages for non-destructive testing, including a reduction in inspection time for scanning mid-size parts and assemblies. "While existing high energy CT inspection services may take 4-16 hours to complete scans, the new system is able to scan parts in less than an hour. The service will also be beneficial for inspection of complex parts and assemblies, allowing for cleaner separation of internal components, and inspection of higher density materials not possible with lower energy micro CT systems," said a company spokesperson.

"We are helping manufacturers qualify and validate parts that either were not possible because of limitations with existing technologies or were not feasible because the service was too costly or took too much time," added Garant.

The company aims to fill the gap in current inspection technologies that limit the application of industrial CT technology due to part size and density. This will allow for internal inspection and dimensional validation of cast parts that would otherwise go into production without proper inspection.

The exclusive technology will also provide useful analyses for the metalworking industry including identification of defects like porosity, inclusions, wall thickness variations, first article inspection and actual to nominal comparisons for out of tolerance features.

This new endeavor required a $4.5 million investment in technology as well as three years of planning, design, development and construction to reach full operation. The new system required sourcing from both local and international manufacturers, vendors and specialists, including the construction of the largest 1 m x 1 m flat panel detector in the world," said the spokesperson.

With federal operational permits currently in place, the new system is now live. Jesse Garant Metrology Center is currently taking on orders from companies who wish to access this innovative technology during the system's ramp up period.
