Bruker Micro-CT

NEW Bruker SkyScan 1273

Benchtop micro-CT for large / heavy objects

The Bruker SkyScan 1273 is a benchtop 3D X-ray microscope for larger, heavier samples that could previously only be scanned using a substantial floor-standing system. Samples can be up to:

  • 500 mm long
  • 300 mm diameter
  • 20 kg in weight

This sets a new standard for non-destructive testing (NDT) using a benchtop instrument.

You can also image planar and high aspect ratio objects with HART PLUS.

Acquire excellent quality images in seconds, with a high-energy X-ray source and a large format flat-panel detector. Full software is provided, including InstaRecon for 100 times faster image reconstruction than standard algorithms.
