Mistras Delivers Dual Ultrasonic Immersion Systems

23 April 2010

Mistras has delivered two carbon composite inspection ultrasonic immersion systems to Hitco Carbon Composites for testing composite aerostructures and materials.

The identical, 25 foot systems are being used by Hitco for the inspection of composite components manufactured for new commercial aircraft. With the incorporation of phased array technology, it is expected that the five axes, multi-element immersion systems will increase Hitco's productivity by providing increased speed and single-pass coverage of the inspected composite components. The systems are integrated with Mistras' UTwin complex contour motion control software to conform to the parts joggle and noodle sections.
