MoviTHERM Introduces a Portable NDT inspection System for Composite Materials Inspection

MoviTHERM announces the debut of C-CheckIR, a portable NDT inspection system. The new, easy-to-use system requires no specialized training, and is controlled using a tablet PC and intuitive software interface. More cost-effective than similarly-capable ultrasonic inspection systems, the new C-CheckIR system brings active thermographic NDT inspection within reach for entirely new market sectors.

Portable NDT inspection SystemThe C-CheckIR controller software includes inspection presets for common composite materials, such as carbon-fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP/CRP) and glass reinforced plastic (GRP). This enables operators to start measuring immediately. Inspection parameters are completely adjustable, enabling custom configurations, but the majority of standard inspections will require only minimal set-up prior to obtaining useful results.

Measurements are completed in just a few seconds. The integrated optical excitation source provides thermal excitation to the sample under test. The system’s thermal camera captures a sequence of inspection images for analysis. The results of the analysis are presented in the form of an image, graphically revealing the internal structure of the inspected material. Typical defects such as delaminated regions are easily identified in the result image.

Unlike other thermographic inspection devices that are designed for stationary operation, C-CheckIR is designed for portability. The entire system is compact, and fits in a single ruggedized transport case. The system’s inspection head is mounted on a lightweight, aluminum support frame. Vacuum-powered suction-cup feet enable operators to inspect objects and surfaces in any position, and at any arbitrary angle, including vertical or under-side surfaces. Pressing a button engages the vacuum, fixing the inspection frame firmly to the surface under test.

Both flexible and portable, C-CheckIR is ideal for NDT Service Providers who routinely perform on-site NDT inspection at remote locations. The system is suitable for aerospace, automotive, wind energy, marine, automotive and other types of industrial clients who need a quick and reliable NDT inspection solution.

NASA awards Contract for Non-Destructive Test System to MoviTHERM

September 14th, 2011 – Irvine, CA, USA

The NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston, TX has awarded MoviTHERM Advanced Thermography Solutions a contract for an infrared non-destructive test (NDT) system for the purpose of testing advanced composite structures and materials.

NASA Composite example

Left image: Composite Panel, on right: Impact damage made visible using MoviTHERM’s CompositeCheck System

The NDT test system uses a thermal camera from FLIR Systems, Inc. and various thermal excitation sources. Halogen lamp arrays and Xenon flash lamps induce a low temperature thermal wave into the surface of the composite material. The system then analyzes the reflected thermal wave over time and is able to detect defects and inhomogeneities in the makeup of the material.

The NDT known as  “CompositeCheck” uses a Lockin Thermography method for enhanced sensitivity to highlight material defects such as voids, foreign material inclusions, impact damages and delaminated areas.

From the international space station to the recently announced space launch system program, a super rocket – more and more conventional materials are being replaced in favor of composites. However, despite all the advantages that composite materials offer, there are also significant challenges in the manufacturing process that demand new inspection technologies.

“This system will significantly enhance NASA’s ability for performing non-destructive tests on complex composite structures beyond that what can be achieved with traditional ultrasound NDT systems.” says Markus Tarin, President & CEO of MoviTHERM.
