Jesse Garant Metrology Center launches exclusive high energy CT inspection service

Canada Makes partner Jesse Garant Metrology Center announces the launch of its new high energy industrial CT scanning service. With this system, the company will be the only private lab in the world that provides this specialized inspection service. The new capability will transform the landscape for non-destructive testing and support innovation within advanced manufacturing.

The system is the first of its kind that pairs a 3 MeV cone-beam x-ray source with a large format 2k x 2k flat panel digital detector array. It will be able to accommodate rapid inspection of mid-size parts, up to 44.5 inches in diameter by 63 inches in height. This will be advantageous for internal inspection of engineered parts, metal castings, and 3D printed alloy parts for a variety of industries, including aerospace, space, defense, automotive, and oil and gas.

“It’s always been embedded in the vision of the company to provide trusted solutions that create meaningful advancements in industry. The new computed tomography system is a huge leap forward for mid-size part validation and feasible high-volume part inspection,” says Jesse Garant, President.

The unique system offers multiple advantages for non-destructive testing, including a drastic reduction in inspection time for scanning mid-size parts and assemblies. While existing high energy CT inspection services may take 4-16 hours to complete scans, the new system is able to scan parts in less than an hour. The service will also be beneficial for inspection of multi-material parts and assemblies, allowing for cleaner separation of materials, and inspection of higher density materials not possible with lower energy systems.

“We’re helping manufacturers qualify and validate parts that either weren’t possible because of limitations with existing technologies or weren’t feasible because the service was too costly or took too much time,” adds Garant.

The company aims to fill the gap in current inspection technologies that limits the application of industrial CT technology due to part size and density. This will allow for internal inspection and dimensional validation of high value parts that would otherwise go into production without proper inspection. The new capabilities will also directly support the growing additive manufacturing industry, allowing for rapid and viable inspection of larger 3D printed parts made from ferrous and non-ferrous materials.

The costly endeavor lead by the company required a sizeable $4.5 million investment in technology as well as three years of planning, design, development, and construction to reach full operation. The new system required sourcing from both local and international manufacturers, vendors, and specialists, including the construction of the largest 1m x 1m flat panel detector in the world.

With federal operational permits currently in place, the new system is now live. Jesse Garant Metrology Center is currently taking on orders from companies who wish to access this innovative technology during the system’s ramp up period.

Founded in 2009, the company was one of the early pioneers of using CT technology for industrial inspection in North America. Since its inception, the NDT and metrology lab has conducted tens of thousands of inspections for major companies from around the world. With a total of $15 million invested into imaging technology over the past five years, the company has steadily expanded to meet the growing demand for frequent and large volume inspection projects in the North American market.

As part of a five year, $15 million roll-out investment in technology, Jesse Garant Metrology Center’s latest expansion includes a more diverse range of advanced imaging systems. The expansion includes a wider range of Industrial CT systems for improved inspection capabilities of industrial parts, digital x-ray systems for high volume part sorting, and new 3D scanning equipment for improved data capture of external features. “Our services are not only to provide our customers with the essential data they need to make qualified decisions, but to help meet the growing demand for larger scale part inspection projects, and continue to be a supporting role in the advancement of industry” says Jesse Garant, President.

With three locations within Michigan and Ontario, the company’s centrally located labs primarily serve as an essential hub for the automotive and aerospace industries. Through this investment, the company will continue to be the largest Industrial CT scanning service provider in North America with the greatest diversity of inspection systems available today. “This expansion means we’re able to easily adapt to industry and meet the challenges of part inspection,” adds Garant.

With clients ranging from local businesses to multinational corporations, the company has undergone steady expansion to meet demands from manufacturers around the globe. Last year, Jesse Garant Metrology Center was recognized as the 64th fastest growing business in Canada and 2nd in Windsor-Essex by PROFIT 500 and was also a finalist for Ontario Exporter of the Year.
