Tecnatom (Madrid, Spain) sponsored the 6th International Symposium on NDT
in Aerospace on November 12-14, in Madrid. Over 100 experts attended to hear presentations and discuss the latest advances in NDT applications for the aerospace industry. Main topics included: the physics of NDT, sensors and material interaction, system design of complete inspection machines and data evaluation by automated image processing. Special focus was given to improvements in inspection speed and the transfer of laboratory-scale NDT technology to production and manufacturing process-integrated testing for inline inspection.

Tecnatom presented multiple technical papers. “Competitive Industrial Robot-based Inspection Cell” was given in collaboration with the Ultrasonics Group of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC). “Composite Inspection using Surface Adapted Ultrasound (SAUL)” and “Laser Ultrasonics Inspections of Aeronautical Components with High Cadence and Geometrical Variations, Manufactured by Resin Transfer Moulding (RTM)” was presented by Tecnatom’s  French subsidiary M2M (Les Ulis, France), which has also displayed Gekko, the first phased array portable equipment device with 64 channels working in parallel and able to generate ultrasonic images in real time.

On the final day, Tecnatom presented “Several Approximations to NDT of CFRP Materials Prior to Autoclave Curing Process” and “Through Transmission Phased Array for Quality and Productivity”. These topics reflect the company’s most recent developments and its progress torward improving productivity during TTU inspections through the inclusion of phased array technology.
