VR NDT Thermographic NDT

Our Thermographic NDT system VR NDT is a cutting edge technology that uses thermal data to detect surface defects in composite and metallic materials. The thermographic  NDT uses an active thermal excitation generated by out thermal source (halogen lamps) that are controlled using our in house developed controller for producing thermal fluctuation in the material. By studying this thermal disturbances produced throughout the material and also using the properties of the disturbance produced, we can identify defects, its size and depth information using our NDT software.


The software features option for different types of simulation ranging from sinusoidal, chirp to digital signals, which are useful for different materials and measuring parameters. Along with the wide variety of signals the software also features multiple data processing algorithms that provide the user a richer variety of data analysis.

The system is useful for finding manufacturing defects such as dis-bonding, inclusions and voids in composites, to see the dis-bonding between 2 different layers in sandwich structures and also manufacturing defects in metals.
