TESCAN Webinar:

Micro-CT and Additive Manufacturing: Moving from 3D to 4D

On demand


The evolution of additive manufacturing (AM) over the last decade has been impressive and looks to be revolutionary as a disruptive technique in the overall manufacturing arena. However, there are still a number of obstacles to overcome concerning the quality of the final part. Micro-computed tomography (micro-CT) is a non-destructive technique used to create highly detailed 3D volumes of intact samples and is widely used throughout an AM part’s lifecycle, including: process development, process monitoring, and final part quality. TESCAN micro-CT products meet this challenge head-on; providing maximum flexibility and versatility, and opening up the possibility to perform 4D studies on samples.

In this seminar we will provide and discuss:
