EddyCus® CF inline WT – Wire and Cable Tester

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.
