We invite you to an accompanying event prepared by our associated partner NTC Research Center – University of West Bohemia as part of the Innovation Week.
A tour of the NTC laboratories and a presentation of a new solution for non-destructive testing (NDT) of spot welds will take place on 14 October 2021 at 14: 00-19: 00.
15:00-16:00 tour through the NTC center
Lecturer: prof. Ing. Milan Honner, Ph.D, NTC Research Center – University of West Bohemia
A tour of selected NTC laboratories and a presentation of a new solution for non-destructive testing (NDT) of spot welds – LabIR Spot WELD. The NTC research centre has used more than 20 years of experience in the field of infrared technologies and, in close cooperation with Chropyňské strojírna, will present a new original solution based on a combination of proven procedures and the latest scientific knowledge. This testing is different from other NDT methods in that it characterizes the weld in terms of heat conduction, considering the homogeneity of the material and the thermal resistances of the interface. It also reflects the unique characteristics of the weld, such as dissipated heat and optical-thermal trace. The main advantages of the solution are short measuring times, the need to access the part from one side only and contactless inspection. This innovative solution is designed primarily for output control in industrial production, such as automotive.
