resin content monitoring in prepregs

Hi all,

We develop industrial low energy X-ray method and apparatus for monitoring of resin content in prepregs during production. Can anybody give us his thoughts about this method or show us a link where a X-ray method is used at presence in prepregs manufacturing?

Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated

Sincerelly,
Dr. Nikitin

You should take a careful look at the attenuation coefficients of the materials involved. X-ray may not be the best method for distinguishing graphite from the resin. Looking for actual voids is a different matter. Air-transmission ultrasound would be worth consideration.

...
oved signal to noise ratio, characterize, size and analyze defects better with access to several wave mode views and save raw FMC data for higher quality analysis.  Some of the benefits are:
  • Beautiful Image! Easier to understand what you're looking at
  • Completely focused in entire image or volume
  • Much easier to define setups before inspection
  • Easier to decipher geometry echoes from real defects
  • Oriented defects (e.g. cracks) are imaged better
  • See image from different wave modes from one FMC inspection
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field
