Dimensional Measurement

Dimensional measurement describes the metrological analysis of distances and dimensions inside a volume data set that was acquired by a microfocus CT scan or microfocus PCT scan.

Dimensional measurement is used for first article inspection and quality management in routine testing. It may partly replace coordinate measurement with touch probes or optical sensors. Measurement accuracy may be down to a tenth of the voxel size of the underlying volume data set due to the high number of virtual measuring points. In some cases an accuracy of less than one micron can be achieved.

Recommended microfocus X-ray tubes for dimensional measurement (DM) in 2D and 3D x-ray images

For dimensional measurement we recommend our microfocus X-ray tubes of product lines THE and THE Plus with transmission target. For inspections at higher energies we recommend the product line CT with reflection target and optimized cooling of the tube head.
