A yet2 client is seeking a method for detecting a hole in the bottom layer of multiple titanium, aluminium or metal composite sheets. Currently each layer is 5 – 20mm thick, with the full stack being 20 – 100mm thick. The hole has a standard 3/16 diameter (~5mm) and can be up to 10mm deep. Current methods of detection include the use of magnets and electromagnetic frequency.This organization is seeking a method for detecting a hole in the bottom layer of multiple titanium, aluminium or metal composite sheets.Click To Tweet
- Be accurate to 0.8mm at a range of 100mm or 0.3mm at 50mm.
- Be operated by one user.
- Be robust and suitable for heavy use.
- Be suitable for use in high pressure, industrial environments.
- Ideally be non-contact, if using contact sensors disposable devices must be used.
Solutions should not:
- Cause components of the structure to move or shift when applied or removed.
- Be affected by air gaps of up to 5mm.
- Use conductive gels that would add application and clean up steps to the process.
- Put the operator’s health at risk.
- Obstruct the detected hole in any way.
Possible Solution Areas:
- IR thermography
- Machine vision
- Medical imaging
- Automotive sensors
Desired outcome of the solution:
Looking to partner with a solution provider with a technology in development that can be adapted, upgraded and improved to fit requirements.
