RMD has developed flexible Eddy Current Technology (ECT) sensor-based probes to enable rapid, high probability of detection (POD) measurements along surfaces and near the edges of curved aircraft components and aircraft engine fan discs.
The benefits of this technology include:
• Improved safety and readiness of aircraft
• New capability for detection of defects at the edges of components
• Greater conformity to parts for improved performance
• Solid State design offers greater durability, reliability, and cost savings
Because our sensors are more uniform than existing wire-wound coil sensors and have greater design flexibility, a larger sensitive area and higher sensitivity, the time required to do inspections can be reduced by more than half while maintaining or improving accuracy and reliability.
