Technology Convergence Creating High Growth Potential in Dimensional Metrology
The impact of the convergence of industrial automation and ICT has been tremendous in recent times. Benefits of this convergence can be seen even in markets such as computed tomography (CT). Several technological advancements, such as 3D printing, are helping manufacturers create complex products like never before. These products are so complex and intricate that it is no longer possible to inspect these objects using traditional inspection mechanisms, such as coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) or optical measurement systems. This has led to the emergence of CT as the single most effective technology that can handle the growing complexities of product designs and composition. CT is still in a nascent stage of development, yet its potential is tremendous.
The objective of this research service is to provide a detailed account of industrial CT systems and their application in manufacturing to understand the competitive landscape. This research service will also look into the different types of CT systems, such as nano-focus, micro-focus, macro-focus, mini-focus, and linear accelerators (LINACs), analyzing the technical specifications and the key participants in each of these segments. The study also aims at throwing light on what the market participants are doing in this space, supported by how the market is likely to transform the manufacturing arena. This could be extremely helpful to the participants in the market who are looking at understanding what their competitors are doing. It can also serve as a major point of reference for all other participants, who are not aware of the immense benefits of CT or are on the verge of making a move in the market.
