Dantec Dynamics is pleased to announce the arrival of the next generation of Shearography equipment for composite inspection

26.03.2007
Shearography is a widely recognised optical measurement technology providing fast and accurate information about defects inside a wide range of composite materials.

Nowadays it is possible to detect, without any surface preparation, delaminations, disbonds, undulations, kissing bonds, crushed core and many other types of defect.


Q-800 portable shearography system


Q-810 shearography system with on hood display

In principal the technique requires two images at two different loading conditions which are automatically compared to each other.

The small levels of loading required can be applied to the object surface using either thermal, vacuum, vibration or mechanical excitation. This creates a unique surface deformation linked to the physical response of the material to the loading.

The results are available in real-time and are displayed automatically to the operator. Further image processing can be performed to customise the results for export and reporting.

The new generation of integrated systems from Dantec Dynamics GmbH include the radically enhanced Q-810 portable shearography system typically used for Quality Assurance in production and in-field inspections.

The overall system weight has been reduced which significantly helps with day-to-day handling; the system can now easily be handled by a single person and therefore the running costs have now been reduced to a minimum.

Furthermore, a new advanced feature called “Real-time Phase Image Display” is available which provides live measurement results to the operator, allowing them to make a final judgement at an early stage.

The Q-800 and Q-810 Shearography systems are now supported by the ISTRA 4D software. This software is based on the common platform for Dantec Dynamics’ products.

Extended Benefits:

• Improved image and shearography results
• Live phase map display
• High resolution firewire camera support for Q-800 and Q-810
• Q-810 reduced weight and size (2 box electronic container)
• On hood display for Q-810 portable vacuum hood
Dantec Dynamics continues to lead the way in Laser Shearography by providing fast results with unsurpassed image resolution and quality.

Im Focus: Carbon Nanotubes Turn Electrical Current into Light-emitting Quasi-particles

Strong light-matter coupling in these semiconducting tubes may hold the key to electrically pumped lasers

Light-matter quasi-particles can be generated electrically in semiconducting carbon nanotubes. Material scientists and physicists from Heidelberg University...

Im Focus: Flexible proximity sensor creates smart surfaces

Fraunhofer IPA has developed a proximity sensor made from silicone and carbon nanotubes (CNT) which detects objects and determines their position. The materials and printing process used mean that the sensor is extremely flexible, economical and can be used for large surfaces. Industry and research partners can use and further develop this innovation straight away.

At first glance, the proximity sensor appears to be nothing special: a thin, elastic layer of silicone onto which black square surfaces are printed, but these...

Im Focus: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.

To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
