Case Study | Composites Materials and Fibers

Introduction

Composite workpieces require many controls and inspections during the overall production process. Computed Tomography (CT) is a powerful non-destructive technology to inspect every sample in an easy way and the only one giving the ability to see inside the matter.

Computed Tomography: Exploring composites components

  

Composites components are diverse and widely used in various industrial fields such as the aerospace, automotive or naval industries. They have complex material behaviour displaying a range of failure modes.

 

Industrial CT scanning technology is the only inspection technique able to characterize in an easy way the overall material structure of a composite component. CT can provide precise measurement of the overall sample, from the whole structure down to individual fibre level. Every structural and dimensional aspect of composites parts can be assessed through one CT dataset.

Structural Analyses: Quality Control Validation

  

Industrial CT scanning allows quick and accurate inspection of parts’  internal and external structures. With a resolution up to 5 μm, RX Solutions CT devices enable the validation of tiny details on composite components.

 

It is possible to define and export an accurate 3D model of the sample to make measurements of the inner and outer geometries, on simple or multi-material parts.
