3-D Printing and CT Scanning Technology Displayed

Exact Metrology recently held an open house at its Brookfield, WI, location, showcasing its newest products in 3-D printing and CT scanning equipment.

Hosted by Dean Solberg, Exact Metrology co-President, the day included product demonstrations from Exact Metrology engineering specialists. Ten demonstration stations were set up throughout the facility, and most of the equipment was available for hands-on use by the attendees. Products included the Romer measurement and scanning arm, Hexagon Q Flash, Leica tracker, Surphasers, ATOS II Blue Light Scanner, Artec Space Spider and Exact Metrology's newest acquisition, the ProCon Compact CT scanner. Several attendees brought their own parts and had them scanned on-site, and then 3-D printed.

Running simultaneously throughout the day were several breakout sessions including:

  • 3-D systems (Geomagic Design X/Geomagic for Solidwork) presented by Mike Tsang
  • 3-D Software Innovmetric (Polyworks) by Julien Thibodeau Gagne
  • 3-D printing by Mastergraphics, demonstrated by Kevin Carr.

One product demonstration included scanning a single grain of salt with the ProCon CT scanner. "The scan picked up details as minute as the ridges in the salt grain, illustrating the scanner's ability to capture the most precise details inside and out," said a company spokesperson. CT scanning is currently used by Exact technicians to examine injection molded parts, castings and forgings, evaluating porosity, grain structure, filament distribution etc. Data can be instantly compared to CAD files in the point cloud for assessment.

"These high-definition CT imaging devices were, until recently, only available for use in the medical field," said the spokesperson. They now serve a wide range of product applications, including but not limited to, industrial, manufacturing and construction, power generation/nuclear, medical and aerospace.
