We supply Nondestructive Testing/Inspection equipment according to customer needs and applications.
Often, damage in composites is difficult to assess from just a visual inspection looking on the outside surfaces for matrix or fiber damage or dents. Nondestructive testing and inspection techniques are of great assistance when working with laminated composites where delamination and internal cracking are possible failure mechanisms. It can be used both for manufacturing quality assurance and for in-service damage detection, to inspect for damage without further damaging the composite structure or component. It is possible to determine both the nature and extent of any damage. In the aerospace industry where composites are used in many safety critical applications, NDT requirements are becoming increasingly important.
