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.
With the ISIS shearography systems, in-service damage to components made of composite materials can be detected very quickly and unambiguously. They allow the timely detection of material defects, such as delaminations, air bubbles or inclusions of foreign particles, which contribute to the weakening of the component, before a major failure of the component occurs. The necessary corrective action can thus be taken early on, increasing process efficiency and saving costs.
The ISISmobile 3010 and ISISmobile 3100 mobile shearography systems enable the fast and easy testing of various composite components, such as sandwich structures with honeycomb or foam core, GlareTM, aluminium composite and other compound materials. Developed as a complete system solution, ISISmobile 3010/3100 provides unique system features for non-destructive material testing. The system can be effortlessly operated by one person; it further offers an automatic program run routine and the software-guided creation of a test protocol.
Equipped with a vacuum unit, the handy measuring head permits orientation in nearly any desired way and attaches to a vast variety of component surfaces. The operator can start the measurement process either directly at the measuring head, from the main computer or from a tablet PC. The measuring result is available in a matter of a few seconds and can be evaluated either right after the measurement or later on - the system is thus immediately ready for the next measurement. All result data can be exported in a range of different file formats. In addition, the system accepts 3D CAD data for the creation of automatic test programs or a test protocols.
Non Destructive Testing (NDT) is an indispensable technique wherever Composites are used; especially when people safety is implied. Here are an overview of recent articles in this field.
