Viridian Automotive & Central Scanning

Like many great ideas, Viridian Automotive was born over a few pints of good ale in a country pub where car enthusiasts were discussing the sorrowful demise of the British specialist sports car industry.Whilst originally conceived to update existing TVR models, it soon became apparent that Viridian could fill the void in the market for a bespoke British sports car. It would use a novel composite and aluminium extrusion chassis and utilise the latest technology wherever possible but still maintain the traditional values of British sportscar design and manufacture. Work commenced on the detailed chassis design in Solidworks software in…
SYSTEM 3D Digitizing with COMET 5 and COMET LƎD INDUSTRY Automotive Industry   INTRODUCTION The Automotive industry is looking to expand its operations in many developing markets and pricing of the product plays a crucial role. One of the challenges is rolling out their globally accepted models at competitive prices. In today’s  emanding market conditions, customers know exactly what to expect from a product and factors like customer experience, value for money, design, and aesthetics play critical roles in deciding the fate of a product. So it is important to understand the market and learn from competition. Competitive research and…

3D Scanning with COMET L3D - Plastics Industry

SYSTEM COMET LƎD INDUSTRY Plastics Industry INTRODUCTION Today, there is an immense requirement for tighter tolerances as the miniaturization continues. In this sense, it is important to have reliable information about the parts being produced to verify and establish integrity of the manufacturing processes. Some of the challenges faced by the industry include; inability to accurately measure injection molded plastic parts, thin walled and delicate plastic parts which might often have complex features, using conventional or tactile  methods. SITUATION A large automotive parts supplier was assigned with the task of mass producing plastic parts for an automotive OEM. The challenge…
SYSTEM STEINBICHLER ISIS INTRODUCTION Composite pressure tanks are more and more used as an alternative to conventional pressure tanks made of steel and aluminium. Due to its stability and light weight construction there will be a continuing high appeal in the future for the use of carbon pressure vessels. To ensure high quality from production to end-user, fast and reliable NDT solutions are required. APPROACH This application note details the use of non-contact shearography method for quality assurance on a type 3, 6, 8 l composite pressure vessel demonstrator as it is used by fire fighters for breathing protection. The…

Shearography on Aluminium Honeycomb Material

SYSTEM STEINBICHLER ISISmobile 3100 INTRODUCTION Aircraft structures are facing high stress during the usage in their lifetime. Therefore, a constant control and maintenance of those structures is necessary. In this application report possible damages to aircraft structures on aluminium honeycomb panel was simulated. Such as top-layer – core delaminations, back-layer core delaminations and Impact damages. An aluminium honeycomb core panel (400mm x 400mm x 27mm) was used for the measurements. APPROACH The specimen was tested using the Steinbichler shearography system ISISmobile 3100 with vacuum excitation. RESULTS Vacuum Loading Test For the vacuum loading, a reference pressure of -40 mbars was…
