A Vibrant Corporation Team Proposal has been selected for award of an Air Force Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) involving hybrid bearing rolling elements. Says Vibrant CEO Lem Hunter, “Vibrant Corporation is excited to be leading a team, involving three of the four major engine manufacturers, working to implement Process Compensated Resonance Testing (PCRT) as the go-to method for non-destructive evaluation of ceramic bearing elements. This is another great opportunity for Vibrant and PCRT.”
Vibrant is a spin off of Mechtronic Solutions, Inc. that has commercialized Process Compensated Resonance Testing (PCRT) in the aerospace and power generation industries. The PCRT technology, licensed from Magnaflux Quasar, is a revolutionary non-destructive testing technology that can determine if a component is structurally sound and fit for service. Vibrant has developed PCRT applications focused on the safety critical components found in the aerospace industry. These applications bring the power of PCRT to bear on new product quality control and in-service product degradation tracking. Vibrant is now performing testing services for several major aerospace manufacturers and Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) firms.
