X-ray of headset
CT scanning for component analysis
GN Netcom A/S produces handsfree communication, such as headsets for cell phones, offices and home.
GN Netcom wanted more knowledge about the interaction between internal elements in an assembled headset, including location and connection between cables, PCB, and speaker.
Using CT scanning it was possible to x-ray the headset and visually inspect the location of internal and hidden elements. The result was purely 2D x-ray images for visual inspection.
CT scanning is x-ray scanning in 3D and is also called computer tomography. The technology is ideal for part measurement and material analysis, as both internal and external geometries are documented. Read more
