Webinar Series

Best Practices and Approaches for Computed Tomography for Additive Manufacturing

February 14, 2023

About the Webinar

This webinar is mainly aimed at additive manufacturing researchers and engineers in practice, who have limited or no experience in using computed tomography (CT) for AM. It will also be beneficial for CT inspection services personnel to understand the AM inspection challenges. After explanation of basic principles of CT inspection, a range of typical inspection scenarios will be demonstrated. Discussion will focus on what can be learned, what are the limitations and what best-practice guidelines can be applied. After this, some advanced applications will be discussed. This will be followed by the latest advances including artificial intelligence approaches to image segmentation and analysis, and approaches for automatic processing of data allowing inline inspection.

Registration Fee: $49.00 USD

Learning Objectives

  • Computed tomography inspection basics
  • Limitations
  • Best practice guidelines
  • CT for AM typical applications
  • CT for AM new applications
  • CT automation and artificial intelligence approaches
