Olympus NDT has introduced the Olympus BondMaster 1000e+ composite inspection instrument, designed to detect internal defects or delaminations in composite structures used for aerospace, marine, automotive, or manufacturing applications.
Olympus says that the major benefit of this latest generation of bond testing equipment is its strong data processing capabilities resulting in a more than ten-fold increase in inspection speed over earlier models. The BondMaster 1000e+ is a multimode instrument offering sonic pitch-catch, mechanical impedance analysis (MIA), and resonance technologies. It includes options for color and monochrome LCD or electroluminescent (EL) display. Packaged in a rugged and durable 1000 Series case, the BondMaster 1000e+ is field-ready for the most demanding applications.
