Dantec Dynamics (Holtsville, NY, US) will feature its laser shearography systems and other integrated optical measuring equipment for materials testing and fluid mechanics diagnostics. Its fully ruggedized and portable laser shearography systems reportedly allow for fast, noncontact, full-field inspection of composite materials for the detection of delaminations, disbonds, kissing bonds, wrinkling, impact damage, voids, crushed core and much more. Certified training can be provided at one of the Dantec Dynamics facilities or at the customer site. Dantec will demonstrate in its booth the Q-800 system.
