Under scrutiny: Automated induction thermography for surface crack testing of fo …

Within the framework of a project funded by the "Arbeitsgemeinschaft industrieller Forschungsvereinigungen" AiF ("Consortium of Industrial Research Associations"), Fraunhofer IZFP scientists investigate the reliability of the automated application of the thermographic crack detection method: After positive validation, this technology is to find better acceptance as an alternative to the established magnetic particle inspection. Using this method, surface-related defects such as cracks in forged parts can be determined quickly, objectively and

Fraunhofer IZFP at GIFA 2019: Robot-assisted sensor system for the quality monit …

Within the framework of quality monitoring of lightweight construction components intelligent sensor systems become crucial: In many industries, especially in aerospace engineering and automotive industry, the use of forward-looking hybrid designs based on fiber composites and light metals is steadily rising. Material defects in the final product may result in early malfunction, thus, impairing the safe use of the product. From 25-29 June 2019, at the 14th International Foundry Trade

Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP
