DolphiTech (Raufoss, Norway) has started the delivery of its DolphiCam ultrasound NDT (non-destructive testing) inspection systems to Volkswagen Group and Audi. The system will be used for damage inspections of automotive carbon fiber (CFRP) primary structures in collision centers worldwide.

The DolphiCam NDT system detects impact damages, delamination and disbonding defects in carbon fiber structures. The system guides the operator through inspections to make sure the correct inspection procedure is applied to the area with suspected damages.

“The Audi Space Frame used in the latest version of Audi R8 sports car uses a combination of aluminum and CFRP to reduce weight. We have developed a NDT solution that gives trained and certified technicians in Volkswagen Group collision centers an easy to use yet powerful tool to inspect composite primary structures. We were selected by Lamborghini in 2014, and are now pleased announce the start of delivery to the entire Volkswagen Group,” said Jan Olav Endrerud, CEO of DolphiTech.
