Tescan Orsay Holding a.s., Brno, Czech Republic, has released its UnitTOM HR, reportedly the first dynamic micro-CT system to offer sub-micron resolution 3D non-destructive imaging for static studies and high temporal resolution for uninterrupted 4D dynamic CT experiments.

UniTOM HR is suited to both industrial and academic applications that need micro-CT imaging to visualise a sample’s internal structure and also want to gain a deeper understanding of a sample’s behaviour under certain environmental conditions. This is especially useful for failure analysis and quality assurance of additively manufactured parts.

UniTOM HR can characterise newly developed materials at what is said to be the highest possible micro-CT spatial resolution, a requirement for sub-micron scale static 3D imaging. It can also provide researchers with a better understanding of how these new materials, and functional components created from these materials, will behave under changing conditions through real-time, not time-lapse, visualisations. This capability sets UniTOM HR apart from other micro-CT instruments on the market.

“Tescan’s dynamic micro-CT portfolio brings fast dynamic CT imaging from the cutting-edge synchrotron to the mainstream laboratory,” stated Marijn Boone, Product Manager. “UniTOM brings together the most sought-after micro-CT capabilities, giving researchers a versatile solution that covers a broad range of 3D imaging and in-situ applications, handles a variety of sample shapes and sizes, and enables 4D time-resolved dynamic experiments.”
