JG&A Metrology (Detroit, MI, US) will emphasize its industrial CT scan services that provide a defect analysis to assess the physical integrity of a composite part or structure. CT scanning can be used to view and analyze internal intricacies, including air pockets, internal cracks, knit lines, inclusions and foreign material. These defects can be highlighted, measured and color-coordinated according to size. CT can be used to evaluate and authorize approval for first-run parts to ensure sustainability, consistency and repeatability. Using this nondestructive testing (NDT) method, fibers can be identified and measured; orientation can be assessed as well.
