Computers are at the forefront of our lives these days, whether we’re conducting business or going about our personal lives. New developments and rapid changes seem to be at the heart of this technology and many people find it frustrating to try and keep up. As soon as we’ve mastered one big software change, another one sweeps in a few months later. It can be dizzying. For businesses trying to make the most of the new technology, computer support is absolutely necessary. Businesses may require anything ranging from an IT consulting firm, a business

Can Non Invasive Scans Help Save Lives? Brain Surgeons Rely on 3D Printing to Prep for Surgery

X-ray inspection

Recent advances in 3D laser scanning services could soon allow industrial facilities to drastically reduce their inspection cost. Previously, obtaining a thorough cross-section of an test object could take several hours, but laser inspection equipment is now capable of generating a complete image — without internal shading — in seconds.

Having high-resolution images that are contain more than 1,000,000 “data points” and which are accurate to between five and 200 microns could practically revolutionize the field of non destructive testing in both an industrial and a medical context. The full technical implications of newer 3D laser scanning services remain unexplored — for the moment — but researchers should be able to generate industrial prototypes more rapidly than ever before.

The Importance of Wall Thickness Analysis

wall thickness analysis

The rise of industrial CT scanning has given way to a much easier way of testing products in the field before they get to market. Inevitably, this can save companies time and money, while also saving consumers a lot of grief. Wall thickness analysis is one of the most important pieces to come out of the industrial CT scanning services.

A wall thickness analysis is designed to help identify any variations in wall thickness, which ends up costing manufacturers a ton of money if they are running a high volume of product with that defect. This is because products must have a certain thickness to them in order to be structurally sound and withstand pressure. Our product allows you to input a specified thickness range. You can then scan your product through and it will show you a color coded map where that thickness varies. From there, you can ascertain whether those variants are safe for the public or not.

This scanning process enables manufacturers to cut down on production and inspection costs. It can also decrease failure analysis costs by between 25% and 75% compared to current technology. A computerized tomography (CT) (or “computerized axial tomography” (CAT) scan) uses the data from several x-ray images inside of a body in order to convert them into pictures on a computer monitor. Tomography is the process of taking a 2-dimensional image of a section through a 3-dimensional object. CT scanning was invented by Godfrey Hounsfield of EMI Laboratories in 1972, and by South African-born physicist Allan Cormack of Tufts University, Massachusetts. They were both awarded a Nobel Prize for their work, which contributed to health and science. CAT scans are currently used in nearly every hospital.

In an industrial setting, this technology allows manufacturers to make sure the product they are distributing is safe, cost effective, and correct. This is why many are jumping on the bandwagon and investing in this great technology.

The Evolution Of Industrial CT Scanning

3D scanning technology

Industrial CT scanning is a powerful new application of 3D scanning technology. Processes that were once native to the medical realm, such as X-raying and 3D scanning, have now been integrated into industries as wide-ranging as forensics, engineering, geology and many more. The resulting paradigm shift has made difficult tasks like reverse engineering and non destructive testing more accessible, reduced the costs of product inspection and failure analysis by 25% to 75%, and revolutionized the world of industrial production.

Prior to the application of CT scanning to industrial part inspection in 2009, the prime means of inspection were touch probe, line of sight scanning and 2D X-ray inspection. Although each of these technologies was effective in their own right, they each suffered from various flaws and faults in the key process of capturing internal part data. Over time, our company refined our application of CT scanning to the industrial process, accumulating a variety of metrology equipment and 3D scanning technology, until we established a means by which we could perform large volumes of highly detailed inspection work.

Industrial CT scanning inspection services are now available and useful for a wide variety of tasks across the full spectrum of industries. This comes at a time where data and information have come to constitute a huge force within the industrial economy. Developing nations such as China have increased production by about 8% in December 2014, and total industrial production increased 0.9 points in the course of the last year. The global demand for efficient and effective industrial production is growing, necessitating the continued improvement and refinement of 3D scanning technology that can perform the tasks of failure analysis and production inspection to the greatest degree of accuracy.

Today, this technology has been used for industrial fiber analysis, cone beam CT imaging, wall thickness analysis and many other functions and services. Contact us for more information, or leave your thoughts and experiences in the comments below.

Google’s New Logo Is More Functional Than You’d Think

creativeBuilding brand loyalty is one of the most important and profitable things a company can do nowadays. A single repeat customer spends about 67% more than a new one, and building loyalty with just 5% more customers could lead to an increased average profit per customer of between 25% and 100%. The keys to building brand loyalty — at least for Millennials — are a great product (which 77% reported was important), and brand recognition (which 69% said was important).

So it’s interesting that Google just reinvented its logo.

Switching things up is not one of the newest brand development strategies, nor is it all that uncommon. Spotify, for example, also recently revamped its logo. What’s interesting, though, is the reason why Google changed its logo, and what its function is.

Gizmodo reports that the reason for the creative change-up is because it doesn’t need as much of a logo as it needs a constantly morphing identity that can resonate across mediums.

It’s the first, major, innovative design change in a whopping 16 years, and even uses a totally custom, creative, new typeface called Product Sans. Yep — as part of its brand development process, Google has cut its serifs off, and apparently it’s for functional purposes, not exclusively aesthetics.

According to Co.Design, using a sans-serif font is not “some attempt at dot com cool.” The “streamlined glyphs shrink down to tiny sizes with more legibility than the more ornamental serif lettering. And so Google has created a logo that can read as well on a 2.5-inch Android Wear watch face as it does your 50-inch TV playing Chromecast.”
In other words, Google found a solution as scientific as it is creative to represent itself across a plethora of constantly evolving digital mediums.
