TWI systems have proven to be high-precision, cost effective solutions to the most demanding inspection challenges.TWI products range from portable systems for !eld and in-service inspection to fully automated industrial solutions for quality assurance.AerospacePower GenerationAutomotiveApplicationsDelaminationsPaint ThicknessImpact DamageMoisture IngressVoidsTBC Coating ThicknessContaminationSkin to Core DisbondCorrosionAdhesive BondingThermal DiffusivityPorosityWall ThinningCrack DetectionSpot Weld InspectionWall ThicknessPaint AdhesionFibre Orientation"The TWI ThermoScope system has been the workhorse for our thermographic NDE research at the University of Bath for the last ten years. It has proved to be an excellent reliable and versatile system for gathering thermographic data that has been used successfully by a very wide range of students, research staff and international visitors. It is a very well designed system by a company that fully appreciates the practical requirements of thermographic NDE/NDT."Professor Darryl Almond - Bath University
Imaging19ThermoScope II - Low Cost / High Performance IR NDT for in-!eld"inspectionPortability for the !eld - that's the driving force behind the ThermoScope II. Combining "ash heating, image acquisition and analysis this unit allows a single user to perform the inspection with ease and simplicity. ThermoScope II uses patented MOSAIQ software with Thermographic Signal Reconstruction (TSR) processing to provide an unprecedented degree of clarity, penetration depth and resolution for applications in the !eld.FeaturesFast/Real Time InspectionPatented TSR ProcessingLightweightLow CostSingle Operator / Easy to UseEnvironmentally FriendlyWide AreaSafeNon-ContactSingle Side AccessReliable & RepeatableA Complete NDT SolutionVoyage IR - Advanced NDT in a Low-Cost, Portable Thermography"SystemVoyageIR is based on Thermographic Signal Reconstruction (TSR), TWI's industry leading signal processing technique, which allows unmatched sensitivity that is comparable to full scale systems. Its "exible architecture let's you con!gure heat source, camera and signal processing to match your$application.Whether it's impact damage, trapped water, delamination in composites, or corrosion in Al structures, VoyageIR is ready to go wherever you need it. VoyageIR is extremely "exible, and can use alternative heat sources and IR cameras tailored to speci!c application requirements.The system is ideally suited for on-aircraft maintenance applications, such as the detection of trapped water and impact damage in composite structures, and in !eld situations where inspection speed and setup time are critical. VoyageIR allows the inspector to set up the system and perform the complete inspection in minutes, compared to current solutions that are often too large, costly or complex for !eld applications.FeaturesLow CostHandheld OperationData Fusion Integrates UT A-ScanTSR ProcessingEasy to UseSingle Case PackageNDT Data FusionWith VoyageIR's Data Fusion capability, users can "map" the sub-surface characteristics of a part using thermography, then merge the picture of the sample with point data generated by other NDI testing procedures, such as A-scan ultrasound, eddy current, or bond-master. VoyageIR complements the other NDT methods by quickly identifying potential defect zones and combining data to establish a greater level of con!dence. This multi-prong approach helps lower overall cost to maintain and operate critical equipment and establishes a new paradigm for NDT in the !eld.
