What is Micro CT?

Principles of CT (Computed Tomography)
360o radioscopic image data on an inspection object placed on a sample table is obtained using an X-ray Image Intensifier by turning the table while irradiating object with X-rays. This data is used in reconstruction calculations to generate cross-sectional images. Toshiba's Micro CT uses a Micro Focus X-ray apparatus as the X-ray source and assures high-resolution cross-sectional images by enlarging images geometrically.

Application Example
Recently, electronic components and parts have been rapidly becoming more precise and dense. Judgment of their internal form has become increasingly difficult. Radioscopic images do not allow correct and accurate inspection of the inside of components or parts that have complex structures. However, a CT scanner can detect fine flaws, foreign matter, separation and other phenomena.
The Micro CT TOSCANER -30000hd series obtains correct sectional images of the interior of inspection objects that are of high precision and density, without destroying or contacting inspection objects. State-of-the-art technology allows high-precision and high-speed inspection, serving new applications in various fields.


The overwhelmingly high performance of 5m in spatial resolution is a powerful tool in R&D, pre-production, quality control, failure analysis and other purposes in the fields of ICs, semiconductor devices, electronic components, batteries, aluminum die castings and many other materials, parts and products.
The TOSCANER-20000AV industrial CT scanner series is also available for large aluminum castings, small iron castings and other castings.


Functions and Features

Spatial Resolution 5m and Finer
A high-resolution sensor and enhanced accuracy of image reconstruction software have achieved a spatial resolution of 5
m and finer, which is twice better than conventional models, and a high contrast.
A dramatic improvement in resolution compared with conventional 0.4-million pixel cameras was achieved with a 1.4-million picture element (pixel) high-resolution camera.


Picture quality improvement
Scattered radiation of X-rays is greatly reduced by a collimator filter mechanism that reduces image noise and obtains clear cross-sectional images. A contour emphasis frequency filter added as a standard specification obtains high-contrast images.

Compact size, lightweight and expanded scanning area
Optimum design has reduced volume by 2/3 and mass by 25% compared with conventional models. The scanning area has been expanded from B5 size to A4 size ( ø200mm x H300mm).

Excellent operability
All necessary scanning control can be operated from the workstation. The X-ray collimator mechanism and geometric distortion phantom switching mechanism are motorized to greatly reduce calibration time before scanning. The operability increases further when fully automated calibration is included. The X-ray filament can be replaced by one-touch action. (Click-in cathode system)

Auto centering
Mere setting of work will automatically calculate the scan center position, reconstruct the image and perform arithmetic operations. Troublesome centering jig setting, data acquisition and other work can be eliminated, greatly enhancing operability and allowing CT operation just like fluoroscopy operation.

Fully automated calibration (Option)
Calibration that is needed in CT scanning is fully automated, significantly reducing time needed for calibration.

Cone beam CT (Option)
One scan obtains data needed for three-dimensional images. 3D data can be generated quickly. This feature is also useful in reverse engineering. Display software with versatile 3D display functions is also supported. (Another option)

Reverse engineering (Option)
CT cross sectional data is output by converting it into a format such as STL and IGES. Data can be input to 3D CAD and to structural analysis software so as to perform dimension inspections and various analyses, further expanding the application range of CT.
