This system is aimed at CT scanning large, high density parts and is situated within its own custom bay. While it has a larger spot size than the other systems this is not important when scanning objects >150 mm in diameter. It can easily penetrate 30 mm of steel, up to 80 mm of aluminium, and has been used on some Inconel parts for aerospace. Where denser parts create a large amount of scatter, there is a curved-linear detector array (CLDA) that minimises the impact of scatter and results in cleaner slices throughout the object. Further, the CLDA increases the maximum sample diameter from 300 mm on the flat panel to 650 mm. The manipulator is reinforced to handle up 100 kg samples safely.
