Aviation and Aerospace
The use of state-of-the-art lightweight construction technologies in the aviation and aerospace industries requires testing and measuring technology which advances just as quickly as the high-tech materials used. Bonding plays an important role and is critical for stability in the field of fibre-reinforced plastics (GFRP, CFRP). The direction and angle of the fibres is also key to stability within the laminated CFRP components.
In partnership with the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials IFAM, we implement solutions from research into test methods suitable for industrial use. The latest example of this is our wetting test bonNDTinspect®. It is used in particular in industrial applications to inspect carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) surface treatments using plasma, CO2 snow or vacuum suction blasting for defects.
