LINACTON is high energy CT focused on industry

X-ray computed tomography (CT) as a non-destructive technique for imaging the inner structure of objects has undergone a major technical and instrumentation development at the turn of the millennium. This allowed its significant use and expansion in industry. Nowadays, CT is an indispensable tool for trouble-shooting, design, improvement and quality check of the products. The actual trends of industrial CT development are in robotization for inspection automation, resolution improvement up to sub-micron level or implementation of high energy sources (linear accelerators) for inspection of large and massive objects.

ABOUT US

Based on long-term cooperation with industry, the CT system manufacturers themselves and the gained experience, these BUT’s groups are joining together to expand their portfolio with a high-energy X-ray computed tomography. For this purpose, a project called LINACTON is being created, whose mission is to build a new center with this technology and make it available for general industrial use. This technology is going to help to improve scientific, engineering and technical knowledge in line with current industrial trends such as automation (Industry 4.0) and electrification (e-mobility).

Brno University of Technology (BUT) deals with CT application and development over more than 10 years. Working together with selected global producers of CT instrumentation, it established several intercooperating laboratories through its research centres CEITEC and AdMaS. The CT laboratories are equipped with complex and complementary state of the art devices, covering a wide range of tomographic analysis. Besides fundamental research in different fields, the activities focus on close cooperation with industry, for which our laboratories provide a high quality level of digital X-ray radiographic and tomographic expertise.
