The Dimensional X-ray Computed Tomography (dXCT) conference is an annual event coordinated by the CCPI and NPL to present and disseminate the latest developments in XCT for dimensional measurement and its industrial impact across a variety of applications. The conference defines synergies and opportunities of collaborations between different organisations and commercial representatives.

In its 6th year, the conference is held at the University of Manchester, between 13 and 16 of June 2022.

The conference will present and disseminate the latest developments in XCT for dimensional measurement and its industrial impact across a variety of applications. Academics, industrialists and engineers from a wide range of disciplines, will have the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas, results and showcase their latest research at this international forum, featuring a series of keynote addresses from experts.

Two pre-conference days of training and tutorials focused on 3D dimensional metrology and dimensional metrology with XCT, can be booked during registration.

The 2022 dXCT training courses will be hosted at the Royce Hub Building, and will introduce attendees to some of the equipment available. There are two days of training available, including general introductions to XCT, and four intensive courses.

Introduction: NXCT, the UK’s National Research Facility for lab-based X-ray Computed Tomography
Introduction: Why we need metrology & calibration
Course 1: X-ray CT instrument optimisation and calibration techniques
Course 2: Defect metrology in X-ray CT and application of measurement confidence
Course 3: Diffraction contrast tomography
Course 4: Spectroscopic X-ray CT imaging for chemical composition mapping

The main conference will be held at the Schuster Annex, University of Manchester, 15 – 16 June 2022.

Proceedings include keynotes from Prof Phil Manning, “Imaging Life on Earth”, and Dr Jay Warnett, “Measurement at the National Facility for X-ray CT ” with full agenda including presentations and a poster session, followed by a drinks reception to be announced.

The main themes of the conference include:

  • New developments in XCT (technology improvement, correction of errors, etc.)
  • XCT for dimensional metrology (traceability and verification)
  • Dimensional XCT for industry applications (automotive, aerospace, additive manufacturing, etc.)
  • Dimensional XCT for medical/bio applications
  • Standardisation
