Control show Non-destructive automatic testing
Germany – Quasar Europe, represented by Hesselmann & Köhler Prozessautomation GmbH, will be demonstrating Process Compensated Resonance Testing (PCRT), a non-destructive, fully automatic material testing method.
PCRT compensates process variations and tests safety-related, failure-critical components for structural irregularities, while tracking faults inside the parts. The equipment assigns a unique PCRT code to every component tested, which also allows conclusions to be drawn about physical characteristics of the component at a later date. Every device tested is given its own specific digital PCRT fingerprint; the information is permanently documented in the Quasar database, which helps to optimize process reliability and quality. Quasar says that the method is suitable for branches of industry where products have to fulfil demanding safety and quality requirements, such as the automotive, aviation and turbine industries, and medical engineering.
