EchoTherm® is the benchmark system for Thermographic NDT and the system of choice for applications ranging from automated manufacturing to aircraft inspection. It provides fast, non-contact, wide-area inspection of flat or curved structures, and can measure material properties or depth and area of subsurface defects. EchoTherm®‘s fully-integrated hardware and software simplifies thermographic flaw detection, process control, or material characterization.
ThermoScope® provides a complete flash thermography system in a portable package, suitable for handheld or robot-mounted operation. Using MOSAIQ® software and patented TSR® processing, it provides clarity, penetration depth and resolution comparable to labratory systems. Push button controls and a touch-screen display allow a single operator to inspect large or difficult to access parts quickly and effectively.
VoyageIR Pro® is designed for hand-held use, combining TWI’s industry leading TSR® signal processing with patented Dynamic Step Heating to provide unparalleled performance and versatility. This optimal balance provides exceptional performance and powerful flaw detection, comparable to larger and more expensive systems.
TAFIS® (Thermal Airflow Inspection System®) redefines cooling hole and channel blockage inspection for aero and IGT turbine airfoils. Used by leading OEMs, this fully automated solution offers unprecedented precision, speed and reliability, replacing conventional testing methodologies (e.g. pin gauge, water flow, and hot wax expulsion) and reducing inspection time from hours to seconds.
T3S® (Thermographic Turbine Test Station®) is an advanced modular solution that addresses a wide range of applications for aero and IGT turbine engine components, including wall or coating thickness measurement, evaluation of adhesion in various coating types (e.g. metallic, TBC, EBC, etc.) and blockage detection in cooling passages and holes. T3S is proving to be particularly useful for inspection of new and advanced materials, e.g. CMC (Ceramic Matrix Composite) and C-C based components used in modern aero engines. Combining flash and flow techniques into an integrated solution, T3S streamlines key inspections into a single stop during the production cycle, increasing throughput and reducing cost.
Originally developed for the US Navy, TWI’s Large-Standoff, Large-Area ThermographyTM (LASLATTM) offers a groundbreaking approach to inspection of large structures, operating at a large stand-off distance (up to 15 ft) to cover an area as large as 250 ft2. It automatically scans the entire inspection area, providing a subsurface map of defect indications that is easily interpreted by the operator. MOSAIQ® analysis tools provide measurement of flaw size and registration on the actual part. LASLATTM’s versatility allows a single mobile system to be used for inspections on multiple platforms without the need for a fixed gantry. Automated inspection routines eliminate manual positioning, providing repeatable inspections.
