In order to carry out this project, Institut de Soudure Group entered into a partnership with Duqueine Group, specialized in the design and manufacture of high-performance composite parts and sub-assemblies.
Duqueine Group and Composite Integrity are working with the existing production system to qualify this new technology to replace ultrasonic testing and thereby reduce the cost of non-destructive testing for the end client. In the medium term, once the technology is qualified, Composite Integrity plans to install a production control center near the Duqueine design and production facility in Civrieux.
This disruptive thermography-based technology uses the latest image processing systems and reduces production control times and costs by as much as 30% compared to conventional ultrasonic technologies.
This technology, fully automated, is being integrated into the workplace environment by Pinette Emidecau Industrie (PEI).
This project has added thermography to the high-tech resources (e.g. C-scan water jet) deployed by Composite Integrity, the composites platform of Institut de Soudure Group.
