MoviTHERM – Advanced Thermography Solutions (Irvine, Calif., USA) will feature at CAMX a thermographic non-destructive test (NDT) system for the detection of FOD (foreign objects and debris) in prepreg materials. FODVIEW is the newest addition to MoviTHERM’s NDT line for composite research, manufacturing and in-service inspections. The system is able to detect FOD on the underside of one to two plies of prepreg during layup. The measurement head can be mounted onto a robotic arm for automated measurements of parts with complex shapes.

MoviTHERM’s other thermographic NDT systems cover an array of inspection applications, such as metal and non-metals, carbon and non-carbon composites as well as ceramics. Supported thermographic inspection methods include transient, pulse, flash, lock-in and vibro thermography. A mobile version of the infrared NDT systems is also available: C-CheckIR system comes in a custom Pelican Case, enclosing the measurement unit as well as the tablet PC used to operate the system. C-CheckIR is designed for in-field inspections. Its suction cups allow the inspector to attach the unit onto a fuselage with a push of a button. 

Other solutions include Jet-Check, for in-service inspection of fuselages and wing sections of aircrafts. The system can inspect aluminum as well as carbon fiber composite structures. Composite-Check is for any composite material inspection either during manufacturing or for post-manufacturing quality control and testing. Crack-Check is a lock-in, vibro thermography system for the detection of cracks in composites, metals and ceramics. Sensitivity allows for detection of subsurface microcracks on turbine blades and other intricate parts. Stress-Check uses lock-in thermography with a reference signal to extract real-time stress patterns in composites, plastics and metals. The system can be used for material fatigue, stress and crack propagation studies.
