Sonemat is pleased to announce its joint progress alongside the Manufacturing & Technology Centre, Jetsoft, Theta Technologies and 3T RPD in RASCAL, a project delivering a cost effective and fast solution to accurately identifying defects in additive manufactured metal parts.

The system is a two stage process, searching for both surface level and sub-surface defects through methods of non-linear resonance and thermography testing. The aim is for the product to be enclosed, easily operated and have a significantly lower price-point than other more conventional methods.

At Sonemat we are developing the thermography stage of the system, implementing high tech infrared cameras and custom-built software, designed specifically for this project, with control of the robotic arm and image capture all built into one elegant and intuitive program that can be run on any modern PC.
