Nikon to Deliver Most Powerful CT System
Brighton, MI — Chesapeake Testing has ordered a combined 225-450kV microfocus X-ray and computer tomography (CT) system from Nikon, selected for its highly accurate 450kV source, the only microfocus X-ray source at this energy level. The system's powerful source, walk-in bay and Panel Shift capability allow Chesapeake Testing to scan large objects up to 39-in. (0.99m) wide made of dense materials such as metals, ceramics and composites. The system perfectly fits in Chesapeake Testing's strategy to further extend the experimentation and testing services it provides to defense, aviation and automotive customers.
Chesapeake Testing in Belcamp, Maryland, USA, provides ballistic experimentation and testing services in support of protection systems research, certification and compliance testing. A key application Chesapeake Testing plans using the new X-ray and CT system for is performing inspection on ballistic-resistant personal body armor.
The new system to be installed at Chesapeake Testing captures detailed X-ray images using a premium 16 x 16-in. (406 x 406mm) imaging panel. Subsequently, a 3D CT volume is reconstructed that you navigated as if walking through the specimen.
