X-ray Computed Tomography, also known as CT scanning, is a powerful tool used in both industrial and laboratory or medical settings for NDT (non-destructive testing) and analysis. It enables the creation of detailed 3D images of a sample by using X-rays to scan it from multiple angles and creating a composite image. Without the correct positioning of the sample there is a risk of incomplete image. Often, this is a time-consuming process. We can help you with a few aspects of your scanning!

CT analysis automation

With CactuX’s motorized wireless stages SaguaroX, you can center your samples more easily. Save yourself 30 minutes a day, 15,5 days a year. The stages` fine centering capabilities allow for precise sample placement. By adding the stage to your CT system, you are a step closer to automating your CT analysis. Leave the habit of going back and forth in the positioning process. Optimize your workflow and center your samples from the outside of the cabinet.

Wireless control

The stage moves along the X and Y axes. Radio module allows for wireless control of the sample and also allows for 360° rotation, as there are no cables attached to the stage.

Choose the speed you need

The stage was designed for a time-effective CT scanning process. We acknowledge that some samples are more difficult to fixate on holders than others. Therefore our stage has the ability to move along the X and Y axes in two speeds.

Make the decision based on your options

The stages come in three sizes, each with a different weight and load capacity. You can choose the one best suited for your needs and your CT system. The stage is one of the industrial CT accessories we have designed based on the needs of microCT technicians.

SaguaroX S with its 2,6 kg is most suitable for positioning small samples. SaguaroX M is the most versatile as it weighs 9 kg and can carry up to 15 kg. SaguaroX M Heavy is adapted for the heavy industrial samples weighing up to 30 kg.
