EADS and DolphiTech Cooperate in non-Destructive Testing Equipment

13 December 2011

EADS Innovation Works and DolphiTech have signed an agreement for the development of a new non-destructive testing (NDT) system based on an innovative ultrasonic camera component for composite inspections.

DolphiTech say that the new tool can be used for all types of NDT applications for composite materials, is simple, easy to operate, and more favourably priced than existing NDT camera systems. A prototype will be available by the end of 2012.

“The new system will speed up NDT procedures in manufacturing and maintenance and will help the users to save time and money,” said Martin Bach, NDT specialist at EADS Innovation Works.

“The adaptation of our novel ultrasound technology for impact assessment by EADS Innovation Works and the EADS Divisions will open a very attractive global market for our technology,” said DolphiTech’s managing director Terje Melandso. “After many years of Research and Development supported by Innovation Norway we have patented the world’s first ultrasonic 2D barcode reader. The cooperation and marketing opportunities within EADS, its suppliers and customers will be very valuable for DolphiTech when we launch the technology on the aerospace market.”
