CT Automat for Inspection Laboratories

An inspection system is considered to be particularly efficient if beside the required measurement services a high sample throughput is provided too. Also CT systems are subdued to this demand. The combination of automation technology and digital image analysis with a fast CT scanner creates such a powerful inspection device that can test up to 20 samples per hour.
