inspeXio SMX-100CT Plus Software

The inspeXio SMX-100CT Plus features user-friendly operation, live images to assist sample positioning, fast data processing, which reduces CT calculation times, and detailed post-analysis software.

Operation and Reconstruction Software

Interactive Capture Window

  • Alter the position of points of interest and zoom in/out of live x-ray images.
  • Display contrast and brightness is automatically optimized based on a sample’s material.

X-Ray Controller and Safety Indicators

  • Control x-ray output and perform tube aging.
  • The safety status of the instrument is monitored, including door interlocks.

Live View of the Sample

  • Shows the scan area of the CT stage.
  • Field-of-view navigation setting and automatic x-ray optimization function.

Multiple Scanning Parameter Settings

  • CT: Advanced parameter setting for CT scanning. Various scan modes are incorporated.
  • DR: Regular 2D x-ray imaging parameter setting.
  • CR: Used to acquire distortion-free 2D x-ray images along the Z-axis.

Fast Reconstruction
CT image processing is often slow due to large data sets. The inspeXio SMX-100CT Plus system boasts a high-performance computing system which significantly reduces analysis time by running calculations in parallel with data collection.

Multi Planar Reconstruction Software

Instant Access to Your CT Images

Shimadzu’s Multi Planar Reconstruction software reformats CT images at arbitrary planes. A CT volume dataset is built by stacking Z-axial slices. The software cuts slices through the volume in mutually orthogonal planes and allows reconstruction in non-orthogonal planes, enabling examination of samples side to side, straight up and down, and at any angles.

3D CT Scan Region Display Function

Immediately after acquiring a whole view of your sample, the 3D CT Scan Region Display function allows the user to set a new area of interest at a higher magnification based on the current field of view. The mobile CT stage is manipulated through  the Multi Planar Reconstruction software. It allows the user to intuitively alter the scan area for a detailed inspection.

Advanced 3D Image Reconstruction

The user can intuitively crop and enlarge any area of interest without rescanning the sample. The high-resolution detector allows acquiring enlarged cross-sectional images with clear definition, even if analyzing a large sample that cannot be scanned at a high geometric magnification.

Optional Voxel Data Analysis & Visualization Software

VGSTUDIO and VGSTUDIO MAX* are software programs for the analysis and visualization of CT data. VGSTUDIO offers simple geometrical measurement functions and basic 3D animation creation. The high-end software for visualization and analysis of CT data is VGSTUDIO MAX. Add-on measurement modules, including defect analysis, nominal-actual comparison, and fiber orientation analysis, are available for VGSTUDIO MAX. Pre-packaged application software bundles are also available. Finally, VGSTUDIO MAX can import IGES and STEP files for comparison of manufactured parts. CAD import modules are available to import formats other than IGES or STEP.
