Computed Tomography


Computed Tomography Imaging Machines utilize rotating x-ray assemblies to scan patients (Medical CT Scanners), baggage (Security Scanners), or fabricated parts (Industrial X-Ray Imaging). Air bearings provide for much higher rotation speeds of the X-ray rotor assembly than conventional bearings, which leads to increased throughput and greater image resolution. Non-contact rotation also eliminates wear and, especially beneficial in the case of the Medical marketplace, noise.
