A large number of different machine types have been offering metrology solutions for workpieces of various sizes and materials since 2005. The machines are used to determine geometrical characteristics and to inspect for cracks and voids, for example. The measurement of many sizes in a relatively short time is a strength of computed tomography. Fast first article inspections and thus fast product validations reduce process costs. Powerful software and hardware solutions also allow CT machines to be used for high-throughput process monitoring.
