Aviation and Space Vehicle Technology

The xray-lab supports the technological developments and application of new materials in the aerospace industry with our different services. We work with the authorities of the federal aviation administration (FAA) and the Luftfahrtbundesamt (LBA), and have certified and specialized employees.

In addition to 2D, 2.5D and 3D radiography, we apply ultrasonic, eddy current and dye penetrant testing. With this broad spectrum of services, we contribute significantly to research and development, especially of the quality, in this high tech industry.

Fields of application are turbine buckets, tires, rims, and brakes and their components. These parts contain different high-tech materials, e.g. compound or sandwich materials or titanium, which are analyzed and tested with specific methods covered by our services. Also, rivet, glued and welded connections are accessible for testing with these methods.
