Assess every welds on your components
A large number of components contain interfaces between various parts (welding, gluing and assembly) and those interfaces must be of high quality to ensure the component's performance.
On casting components, a lack of fusion (LOF) along the weld leads to an interruption of material cohesion, and a LOF can bring failures during the life time of the component. Computed tomography, and particularly the laminography mode is the best technique to easily and quickly inspect many welds as well as control in real time the welding parameters. Similarly to LOF, a lack of glue is also easily visible on less dense parts.
A quantitative analysis allows a comparison between the total volume and the void/inclusion volumes. Determination of the critical bonded heights at a given point along the weld, or adhesive bead can also be performed.
