This technique is a declination of radiography and, thanks to a 360° scan of the component, it allows 3D reconstructions of the external surfaces and the internal volume of the structure.

It is universally recognized to be the best technique in terms of localization and characterization of defects, but it is limited in relation to the size of the object under inspection. The equipment we use in Vetorix Engineering, on the contrary, is revolutionary from this point of view because it allows the analysis of components of significant size.

This technique derives from medical ultrasound and involves the use of specific probes (multi-crystal) with electronic management of the ultrasound beam: this allows the 3D display of internal material defects.

The innovative visualization software enables sectorial “live” scans for an immediate outcome or dedicated views
(in section and plan view) for a more accurate assessment of the defect
(characterization and sizing) , thus increasing the reliability of the inspection .

In addition, the post-processing activity allows to record data for future comparisons during the service life of the component.

Our team has been using this technique for over 10 years for the inspection of composite and metal materials.

Active Thermography is an incredibly beneficial method for the inspection of structures with complex geometry.
It leverages its “contactless” feature and allows the extension of the inspection to the whole surface of a component.
It takes advantage of  heat conduction: a lamp heats the surface under inspection by radiation and a high-resolution thermal camera captures the transient cooling; any thermal anomalies detected indicate the potential presence of internal defects.

Through a dedicated post-processing and a careful analysis of the signals, it is possible to characterize critical discontinuities as delamination, disbonding and cracks, both external or internal.

Vetorix Low-Frequency-1

This method uses mechanical vibrations generated in the component under inspection by means of various types of probes. There is a wide range of techniques depending on the frequency of the input signal: Tap Test (widely used as a basic technique), resonance method, Bond testing, traditional Pulse-echo ultrasound.

The physical principle is based on the perception by the operator of a noise (sound signal – for the Tap test) or the display of a return signal (using a specific device), that is properly processed (e.g.: in frequency or amplitude), read and understood; this provides information on the location and size of any internal defects of the material.
