RAPID + TCT 2024. Additive manufacturing (AM) isn’t just for prototyping anymore! Modern manufacturers in a wide variety of sectors know they can build components most efficiently using AM techniques. Inspecting AM parts demands the support of world-class metrology companies such as Nikon.
Nikon will feature two distinct technologies at RAPID + TCT 2024. Both offer outstanding support for AM-focused manufacturers:
- X-Ray CT. Resolution is the name of the game for inspecting the interior geometry of dense AM components and their often-complex surfaces. Nikon’s X-ray CT line answers the requirement with an in-house, 450 kV microfocus source that easily inspects for porosity, and conducts dimensional analysis, all non-destructively.
- Laser Scanners. Another outstanding option for those inspecting AM components is laser scanning, represented by Nikon’s automated 3D scanning line-up. These scanners offer exceptionally fast, accurate, and non-contact inspection of surface features on AM components.
