KARMIEL, Israel, February 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
NDTherm™ Enables Fast and Easy Parts Inspection and Identification of Internal Defects
Following several years of research and development, and after successfully testing a large number of parts and building a global distribution network, Opgal is officially announcing general availability of NDTherm™ - its Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) solution based on thermal imaging. Using active thermography and unique algorithms, NDTherm™ enables fast, safe, contact-free, cost effective, easy to use, real-time inspection of parts. It detects deep flaws in various composite materials and structures such as CFRP, sandwich structures, hybrids and porous materials. NDTherm™ can be applied on small or large surfaces, including cases where access is only possible from one side of the structure.
"NDTherm™ is yet another proof of Opgal's ability to apply its state-of-the-art thermal imaging technology and proprietary image processing algorithms in a new domain, this time in a purely industrial application," said Amit Mattatia, President & CEO of Opgal. "NDTherm™ provides manufacturers of composite parts for aerospace and many other industries with a clear advantage over traditional, incumbent NDT methods."
Opgal will showcase its newest, field proven version of NDTherm™ at the upcoming JEC World 2016 exhibition in Paris, France, on 8-10 March.
Available in three form factors - portable, fixed and automated - Opgal NDTherm™ is capable of inspecting materials at various stages of the manufacturing process:
The portable system, NDTherm™ NT is positioned for in-service applications and enables regular maintenance and efficient damage assessment. Suitable for a one-man operation, this compact system allows easy transportation and quick deployment in the field. Designed for production lines or testing environments, NDTherm™ FX offers enhanced image output to enable intuitive and accurate assessments, as well as built-in reporting capabilities. NDTherm™ AU is a customized system with a variety of testing capabilities for automatically inspecting large parts and complex shapes.
