Cable, rod or pultruded parts are generally continuous parts, which are manufactured non-stop at a high throughput rate. In order to ensure such a high volume production, a real-time measurement is necessary. Eddy current provides measurement rates of up to 500 Hz, which fulfil this objective. The main challenge is to select the right number of sensors at a certain resolution to detect enough, with the least amount of investment.
The customized solutions aim to identify
- Fiber cracks
- Fiber orientation
- Serious misalignment
- Areas with more/ less carbon fibers
- Absolute/ relative conductivity
- Uniformity of conductive coating
Please notice these applications are still in development. Feasibility is to be checked upon request.
