High speed bearings meet CAT scanner requirements

High speed bearings meet CAT scanner requirements In medical diagnostics, CAT scanners (computerised axial tomography) produce detailed images of internal body organs by rotating x-ray generators and detectors around the patient. The need for high positioning accuracy is of course paramount in these systems and scanner manufacturers therefore need to be assured of the quality of components such as bearings. Development is firmly towards the production of faster systems to improve scanning time and reduce the patients' exposure to radiation. For this reason weight and space are key factors in improving the speed and performance of the moving elements. For this reason Kaydon Reali-Slim thin-section bearings have become the choice of all major manufacturers of CAT scan equipment. They are primarily used in the mechanism that carries the x-ray head.
