JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
FBGS announced that they have entered into a strategic partnership with 4DSP, one of the premium manufacturer of fiber optic strain, temperature and 3D shape sensing technology.
Hugo Mertens, CEO of FBGS says "Aligning with 4DSP gives our customers unique access to a cutting edge technology that perfectly complements our All Grating Fiber (AGF). We are providing the engineering community with a technology which for the first time impacts every facet of product development and deployment including design, test, implementation and monitoring. These two technologies complement one another perfectly to provide our customers the opportunity to multiplex thousands of sensors for accurate strain or temperature measurements and shape sensing”.4DSP’s Fiber Optic Sensing System (FOSS) was developed in conjunction with NASA Dryden Flight Research Center and acknowledged with R&D Magazine’s prestigious 2013 R&D 100 Award. The Fiber Optic Sensing System is now used in many different industries to revolutionise structural health monitoring, where very high density sensor networks are required on a single optical fiber.Although developed to serve the aerospace industry, applications in automotive, oil and gas, medical devices and wind energy have been established. This new technology offers real-time knowledge of the behavior of the component or entire structure, giving engineers the ability to optimise designs following FEA and other software tools used in the evaluation of new materials for longer, safer in-service life.More information: www.fbgs.com
