Aerosol dispensing manufacturer LINDAL Group has invested in a state-of-the-art computed tomography (CT) system – the first of its kind to be used in a manufacturing setting in France.
Based at the company’s Global Innovation Centre in Briey, the new CT scanning machine uses imaging techniques to produce an accurate 3D representation of a scanned project, viewable from multiple angles. Commonly used in the medical field, the system gains detailed information on the internal structures of products and components.
Adopting X-ray technology, the CT system measures, analyses and inspects the dimensional accuracy of both internal and external features of a product in one simple scan. This information can be used to tailor tools and production processes, ensuring products are manufactured in optimum conditions and to the highest standards.
The scanner will also support LINDAL’s Global Innovation Centre to accelerate product development and reverse engineering processes, through its capability to create computer-aided design models from the 3D volume data.
“We are always looking at new ways to build on our capabilities and quality processes,” said Kashif Choudhry, group marketing manager at LINDAL.
“We are utilising the latest technology to offer the best service possible for our customers. The new scanner’s capabilities exceed that of existing standard machinery and our investment conveys our continued commitment to the highest possible quality standards now and in the future.”
