Inspection System Sonoair
Contact-free Material Testing with Air-coupled Ultrasound
Sonoair, the stationary small testing system for the non-destructive testing of composites made of carbon or glass fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP, GFRP) as well as steel and aluminum was especially developed by Sonotec Ultraschallsensorik Halle GmbH for laboratory examinations.
The system, which can be customized for each testing task, combines newly developed probes with a powerful, low-noise amplifier and an innovative, powerful ultrasonic transmitter. In this way, the system guarantees meaningful test results even when examining particularly damping materials. Inclusions and inhomogeneities in the material or the adhesive connections and joints can thus be definitively recognized.
Typical examinations are the inspection of adhesive connections for multi-skin polycarbonate sheets, the testing of bubble films in order to check the uniform filling of the bubbles, and the examination of wood composite materials and composite materials in aircraft construction. A positioning table, which can be controlled via a 3-axis portal system, enables the two-dimensional examination of the samples. Special control and analysis software for PC makes it possible for the user to view a color-coded representation of the examined area on the screen in real time.
