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.

nresolved asset integrity problem in the industry. Current methods for measuring wall thickness with liftoff, without removing insulation, all have severe limitations. Eddyfi introduces Lyft — a reinvented, high-performance pulsed eddy current (PEC) solution. The patent- pending system features a state-of-the-art portable instrument, real- time C-scan imaging, fast data acquisition with grid-mapping and dynamic scanning modes, and flexibility with long cables. It can also scan through thick metal and insulation, as well as aluminum, stainless steel, and galvanized steel weather jackets. Who else but Eddyfi to reinvent an eddy current technique and redefine CUI programs. Got Lyft?
