A new development in ultrasonic probe technology offers a faster and more
effective way to inspect complex curves and radii in composite components.
WrapIt, from Phoenix Inspection Systems, is a flexible ultrasonic phased
array tool that can be wrapped around a curved surface. It is ideal for use in the
aerospace, marine, wind energy and motor sport industries where structural
composite components are commonly used and where the use of conventional
probes can present a real challenge.
Silverwing has partnered with HPC Wales and Ansys to conduct further research
into magnetic flux leakage (MFL) inspection techniques.
Typically termed "supercomputing" Silverwing will have access to 320
simultaneous cores for running its MFL simulations. The simulations will be
performed using Ansys Maxwell simulation suite, enabling transient response
analysis across a wide range of corrosion shapes. Ansys is a global leader in
simulation, and provides multi-physics capability to simulate bot
