North Star Imaging (Rogers, MN, US), a manufacturer of computed tomography (CT) systems for non-destructive evaluation (NDE) of composite parts, will feature its X5000 system for large-part inspection. CT inspects the inside of the composite structure and generates a 3D model of the part, with relatively high resolution. The 3D rendering capabilities of efX-CT, from NSI software, allows for multiple virtual cross sections through the part in multiple axes, and the resolution reportedly often allows visibility of individual fibers. Delaminations and wrinkles are detectable; porosities are quantifiable and measurable. North Star Imaging also reports that CT is able to measure fiber orientation.
