Understanding MicroCT for Additive Manufacturing

We have teamed up with The Barnes Group Advisors to develop a training course on the use of microscale X-ray computed tomography (μCT) in additive manufacturing. Details about this course have been described on Digital Engineering’s Rapid Ready Tech blog, along with a general overview of how μCT fits into the additive manufacturing process, from feedstock powder to printed part.

This new training course is offered as either a webinar or in-person workshop. It covers a range of topics designed to assist in the integration of CT in AM as part of an overall goal to foster the integration of AM into a client’s facilities, products, and design thinking. The content is modular and can be tailored to the unique needs of the client company.

Internal Components of microCT

Internal components of a Zeiss Xradia 520 Versa, property of the Multi-Scale Additive Manufacturing Lab of the University of Waterloo. X-rays are emitted in a cone beam from the X-ray Source Assembly and travel through the Sample to the X-ray Detector to collect a 2D radiograph. The Sample is incrementally rotated through 180° or 360° to collect several hundred to several thousand radiographs, which are reconstructed into a 3D image.
