The Modal Shop, Inc. of Cincinnati, OH announces the release and enhanced functionality of Resonant Acoustic Method Non-Destructive Test (NDT-RAMTM) systems, based upon the innovative SDC003 LanSharcTM hardware platform. An ideal technique for quality assurance testing of powder metals and castings, the NDT-RAM systems allow for fully automated QC testing of 100% of parts in a production environment. These systems use an instrumented impact hammer and microphone to evaluate the part quality via the acoustic signature of components in a quick, efficient and cost-effective manner. With no part preparation required, this technique can successfully identify internal and external flaws due to dimensions, voids, cracks, material density, bonding and manufacturing processes.
The NDT-RAM series of products include a range of fully automated to manual systems, for both production and engineering development applications. The fully automated NDT-AUTO system includes an industrially packaged, 24 bit, 40 kHz LanSharc as the core, with an electrically controlled impact hammer and ICP® microphone as sensors. Additionally, the system includes a production line conveyor system with an acoustic chamber, photoelectric eyes, PLC, encoder and industrial PC with flat panel touch screen for efficient, 100% part QC testing. The manual NDT-MAN system is ideal for spot checking and/or troubleshooting, and extremely rugged and portable using just the LanSharc digital controller, an impact hammer and microphone.
