Demonstrations of a new GE CT scanner were a highlight of the Exact Open House at the company’s new technical center in Cincinnati. 

At a recent open house and ribbon cutting ceremony, Exact Metrology opened its new facility in Cincinnati, Ohio. It is the company’s second field technology center with the other located in Milwaukee.

These centers offer 3D scanning, reverse engineering, quality inspection, product development and 2D drawings. A highlight of the Cincinnati opening was the company’s new GE CT scanner. It’s the first such industrial scanner applied in North America to metrology.

Like its medical counterpart, the scanner is able to “see” inside workpieces to determine if any flaws from the manufacturing process exist. Co-president, Steve Young, believes this technology will be applied to reverse engineering and will be especially useful in measurement of additive manufactured parts. “AM can and does create interior features that can only be verified and measured with a scanning system like this,” he says.
