Title (EN) NON-CONTACT SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR DETECTING DEFECTS IN AN ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING PROCESS
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ SANS CONTACT POUR DÉTECTER DES DÉFAUTS DANS LE CADRE D'UN PROCESSUS DE FABRICATION ADDITIVE
Abstract:
(EN) A Pulsed Thermography (PT) system and method is provided utilizing a long duration pulse in combination with a radiant heat shield as a non-destructive testing method for quantitatively measuring defect depths within a 3D printed part and for characterizing layer-by-layer surface defects in the 3D printed part.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système et un procédé de thermographie pulsée (PT) associant une impulsion de longue durée et un bouclier contre la chaleur radiante en guise de procédé de contrôle non destructif pour mesurer quantitativement des profondeurs de défauts au sein d'une pièce imprimée en 3D et pour caractériser des défauts de surface, couche par couche, dans la pièce imprimée en 3D.
