The German Federal Institute for Material Research and Testing held it’s 4th annual conference for reliability of NDE. The program attracted world wide attendees and over 40 papers were delivered during the three day event. Process Compensated Resonance Testing was featured in two different papers. One, delivered by Vibrant CEO Lem Hunter, titled Component Life Management Using Process Compensated Resonance Testing and a second authored by Thomas Köhler of Hesselmann & Köhler Prozessautomation GmbH, titled Correlating Part Performance with NDT.
Vibrant is a spin off of Mechtronic Solutions, Inc. that has commercialized Process Compensated Resonance Testing (PCRT) for use 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.
