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.

  • Composites recycling becomes a necessity

    Boeing and Airbus each is generating as much as a 1 million lb of cured and uncured carbon fiber prepreg waste each year from 787 and A350 XWB production. If you include the entire supply chain for these planes, the total is closer to 4 million lb/year. And with the automotive industry poised to consume (and waste) more carbon fiber than ever, recycling of composite materials has become an absolute necessity. The technology is there, but the markets are not. Yet.

  • More and more composites blowing in the wind

    Wind energy is putting the uncertainty that was the hallmark of this industry in the rearview mirror. Electricity from this renewable resource is cheaper and more competitive than it's ever been — and getting more so. This massive consumer of composite materials has a bright future.
