dc.description.abstractMicrofocus X-ray computed tomography (CT) scanning is a three-dimensional (3D) non-destructive technique that is useful in many research and technology fields. Similar to two-dimensional (2D) X-ray inspections, this 3D technology allows the investigation of almost any material down to 1 micron spatial resolution and higher. In this paper we present a characterisation and demonstration of the use of CT to analyse the 3D volume of laser sintered parts including analyses of porosity, dimensional measurement of cracks and other features, and a demonstration of quality testing methods which can be used to quickly identify problems in production.en_ZA
dc.description.abstractMikrofokus X-straal rekenaar-tomografie (RT) is ‘n drie-dimensionele (3D) nie-destruktiewe tegniek wat bruikbaar is in baie navorsing en tegnologie velde. Soortgelyk aan twee dimensionele (2D) X-straal inspeksies, laat hierdie 3D tegnologie dit toe om enige materiaal in 3D te ondersoek tot 1 mikron (en hoër) ruimtelike resolusie. In hierdie artikel word ‘n karakterisering en demonstrasie van die gebruik van RT aangebied om die 3D volume van laser-gesinterde onderdele te analiseer, insluitend die analise van porositeit, dimensionele metings van krake en ander eienskappe en ‘n demonstrasie van kwaliteit toets metodes wat gebruik kan word om vinnig probleme in produksie te identifiseer.af_ZA
