LOTUS-NDT is a high performance, stand-alone, fast, desktop NDT micro-CT with continuously variable magnification for scanning small objects (micro-plugs, …) and additive manufactured samples; Innovative combination of high resolution, big image size, 2D/3D reconstructions, and low dose imaging. The smart field of view (FOV) adjustment allows wide range of object size scanning. The variable magnification allows scanning all kind of samples with high spatial resolution down to 1 µm pixel size. Variable X-ray energy combined with a range of optional filters ensures optimal image quality for diverse research applications from digital core analysis to samples with metal implants.
The LOTUS-NDT system enables micron-accurate gated and continuous rotating modes.
