Application: Chassis for the gantry of a computed tomography unit, gantry, and computed tomography unit (Patent ID: US20240099671A1)

The patent filed by Siemens AG pertains to a chassis for a gantry of a computed tomography unit that is partially produced using additive manufacturing. The chassis includes receiving areas for attaching rotating components of the CT unit and features struts and undercuts formed through additive manufacturing. The chassis has an average wall thickness of up to 20 mm and weighs less than 200 kg, providing structural integrity while being lightweight. Additionally, the chassis may include a frame not produced using additive manufacturing, with other elements being additively manufactured for enhanced functionality.

Furthermore, the chassis design allows for bracing elements and continuous rings with struts to be incorporated through additive manufacturing, ensuring rigidity during operation. The gantry for the CT unit and the CT unit itself can utilize this innovative chassis design, offering improved performance and efficiency. The patent highlights the benefits of additive manufacturing in creating complex structures like the chassis, showcasing the potential for advancements in the field of medical imaging equipment.
