Aerospace and Defense

When original engineering drawings are scarce or outdated, advanced CT scanning systems provide an innovative solution by generating Digital Twins—virtual replicas of the original components. These Digital Twins not only enhance the ability to identify defects but also breathe new life into engineering programs, bridging the gap between the past and the present, and ensuring quality and safety remain uncompromised in aerospace and defense manufacturing.

With Voyager's dimensioning tools, engineers can take precise measurements and detect dimensional deviations swiftly. Porosity analysis helps uncover hidden voids within materials, a crucial capability to address issues of material integrity. CAD Comparison and Scan to Scan Comparison enable engineers to compare components with CAD models and other parts to quantify deviations, providing insights to combat misaligned assemblies and ensure seamless fits.

Voyager helps Eaton streamline product development and production across international business units through one collaborative software platform to share, review, and edit scans in real time.

CubeSat

As CubeSats are launched into space where they can no longer be inspected or repaired, it is essential that the avionics perform as expected in advance of the deployment. With CT inspection, this can now be done in as little as 15 minutes.

Isogrid panel

In Voyager, engineers can conduct CAD Comparisons, overlaying their design file and the CT scan of their manufactured part to both visualize and quantify deviations using heatmaps.

3D-printed bracket

Industrial CT quickly and easily pinpoints problems with additive manufacturing processes. Throughout this bracket, we find in-layer porosity, likely due to a powder recoating issue during printing.
