Webinar: The role of computed tomography in accelerating the development and qualification of AM processes and products


Join Aerospace Testing International and Brett Muehlhauser, R&D technical fellow from North Star Imaging for an exclusive live webinar on how computed tomography can be used to develop and qualify additive manufacturing processes and additively-manufactured components.

The webinar, which will take place on Thursday 14th May 2020, 10:00am CDT (4:00pm BST) will boost your knowledge of this growing area of non-destructive testing and its application in critical aerospace applications.

Computed tomography is currently being employed in applications ranging from new process development through to final inspection of additively-manufactured product. Studies have shown that using computed tomography (CT) can help detect, classify and better understand the types and sizes of discontinuities found within different additive manufacturing (AM) processes.

Critical product applications in aerospace demand confidence in the internal integrity of the product and in the internal and external metrology data. CT is a technology that can provide both for many applications.

AM product and sample coupons are commonly evaluated for material properties such as tensile, compression, torsion and fatigue. CT is being used to validate the correlation between the sample coupons and the product as well as assist in the qualification of in-situ monitoring methods.

This presentation will include examples of where CT is being applied in both metal and polymer additive manufacturing.

Brett has been with North Star Imaging for 20 years and is currently working to continue advancements in CT and digital radiography (DR) technologies and applications. He also writes DR and CT training curriculum and teaches these courses to a global audience.
