The International Conference on Advanced Ceramics and Composites (ICACC) is the most prominent international meeting in the area of advanced structural and functional ceramics, composites, and other emerging ceramic materials and technologies. Vibrant Corporation presented the paper titled “A More Comprehensive NDE: PCRT for Ceramic Components”, stating the case for Process Compensated Resonance Testing as an improved inspection method for ceramic components.
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.
