Today the chassis and X-ray generator arrived from Nikon Metrology. Around 4500 kg of lead, steel, plastic and electronics on the back of a flat bed lorry. This is the hardware platform that will form the basis of our MuCAT-3 scanner, which is being specially designed for imaging documents and scrolls for the Apocalypto project.

Up Up and away

Now the work starts, integrating the X-ray system with the sample positioning and image acquisition hardware and software.
