POROSITY DETECTION IN COARSE TITANIUM COMPONENT
Using large aperture and TFM method allows to detect small porosities (0.5 mm) in electron beam welded titanium components with grain size of 0.5 -1.5 mm with very little sensitivity to positioning.
THICK PLATE INSPECTION
The inspection of thick plates of large dimensions is a productivity challenge. While satisfying high-resolution requirements for defect detection and sizing (AA class, aerospace grade), the inspection speed must also satisfy production requirements.
INDUSTRIAL SYSTEM FOR COMPOSITES INSPECTION USING SAUL (SURFACE ADAPTIVE ULTRASOUND)
The SAUL technique enables the transmission of an incident wave-front parallel to any complex surface. One specimen presenting variable geometries (flat, concave or convex surfaces) can be entirely controlled using a unique probe (such as a matrix array with a flat active aperture). The real-time adaptive processing is illustrated through measurements obtained with typical aircraft composite structures (e.g., CFRP stringers, stiffeners).
