The RUAG Space Materials Test Lab is certified for Non Destructive inspection of different structures and materials and for destructive testing methods as well. Because of the extensive experience and expertise gained during many years of testing our in-house projects, combined with the specialised test facilities developed in this time, ensure a reliable partner is available for all test services.
For our composite structures it is crucial to test the CFRP Panels on delamination. Therefore we invest significant effort in NDI testing using ultrasonic and acoustic examination. The interference pattern of the reflected sound waves gives information about the bonding properties of laminates and the like. The portable equipment offers a high amount of flexibility and can be used on large as well as smaller structures.
Equipped with the Bondmaster 1000 and 1000e+ it is possible to test for delamination in the ultrasound and acoustic frequency range. With the Olympus Omniscan MX we are even capable of doing Phased Array Ultrasonics and normal UT for fast scanning of largevolumes.
The following inspections are feasible:
• Detection of surface and subsurface defects
• High Sensitive Class III
