Three-Dimensional Shape Measurement With High-Energy X-Ray CT-Scan 2003-01-1033

Digital engineering has been utilized in product development to improve the quality. The actual object was measured and digitized into the three-dimensional (3-D) data, and the requirement of evaluating and analyzing the CAD data has been increased in these activities.
So, we developed the technology that measures the actual object and obtains the 3-D model data for general automotive parts.
The features of this new system are high-speed and high-accuracy by using high energy X-ray CT technology and 3-D model data technology. 3-D model data can be obtained for about 5 hours in case of the engine block and the error is 0.1mm or less.
We also show the examples of the new automotive parts development using this technology.
