TECHNOVOTUM - development and production of equipment and technologies for non-destructive testing (NDT)



The laser scanning and flaw detection equipment ROBOSCOP VTM-5000/COMPOZITE for the testing of polymer-composite materials ROBOSCOP VTM-5000/COMPOZITE is used in the production or assembling of composite structures.

The bench enables:

  • impedance testing method, as a basic method for materials with a high attenuation coefficient;
  • eddy current method for magnetic and ferromagnetic alloys;
  • ultrasonic, including shadow, echo-pulse, phased array, laminar methods;
  • laser method for geometric parameters measuring (profilometry).

The selection of test techniques and probes is programmed for the initialization steps. All NDT methods are simultaneously available. The specification of scan areas, movement paths and test speed is performed by the CAD application "Method Designer". For composite panels, sensitivity adjustment of ROBOSCOP VTM-5000/COMPOZITE is done layer-by-layer, with regard to the physical properties of material (attenuation). During the impedance test, the optimal spectrum of probing signal is automatically selected for each material during the system initialization. The scalability of ROBOSСOP VTM-5000/COMPOZITE allows testing parts of various shapes and sizes, the criteria ofrequired mechanization are individually specified at the design stage.

Using one robotic test bench for the whole inspection cycle enables to cutoperation time and get a high-accuracy flaw chart of a test pieceby applying all programmed inspection methods.

The NDT and laser scanning test bench ROBOSCOP VTM-5000/COMPOZITE is applied to inspect composite parts, which are intendedfor the aircraft industry

The full testing of composite multilayered materials with maximal flaw detection resolution capacity requireto use various specialization NDT operators, testing methods & different devices.
Introduction of only one robotic measurement system allows to manage full NDT of complicated composite construction in shortest possible time.
The system displays a high-precision flaw pattern obtained as a result of application of pre-defined testing methods set.
