Consulser makes use of Ultrasonic Testing (UT) during qualitative verification of composites.

In composites, the A-SCAN spectrums are used, from which the characteristics of the examined body can be deduced:

  • thickness
  • delamination
  • porosity
  • voids
  • quality

In addition, in metals, it can reveal:

  • cracks
  • voids

Unlike Thermography (TT), Ultrasonic Testing (UT) examines the interior of materials, detecting the exact point of an anomaly and its main characteristics such as depth and extension.

UT is undoubtedly the best system for inspecting monolithic composites and is also effective on composite sandwiches.
