Jesse Garant Metrology Center, based in Ontario, Canada and Michigan, USA, has announced the expansion of its operations to include a more diverse range of advanced imaging systems, including industrial CT scanners suitable for the inspection of large parts and assemblies. The addition of CT systems aims to accommodate the growing demand for high volume part inspection for pre-production and production validation in the Additive Manufacturing industry.

This expansion is part of a five-year, USD $15 million roll-out investment in technology expansions for the company. Jesse Garant, President of Jesse Garant Metrology Center, stated, “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.”

Jesse Garant Metrology Center’s laboratories primarily serve the automotive and aerospace industries. Through this investment, the company will continue to offer leading industrial CT scanning services in North America with what it states is now the greatest diversity of inspection systems available. “This expansion means we’re able to easily adapt to industry and meet the challenges of part inspection,” added Garant.

The expansion includes supporting the Additive Manufacturing industry with improved CT capabilities for a handling a wider size range of complex 3D printed parts and for preproduction and 100% production validation. The company provides manufacturers with accurate identification of porosity defects, residual powders, wall thickness variations, part to CAD comparisons for out of tolerance features and dimensional measurements for First Article Inspection reporting requirements.
