The FlawScout is a laser shearography non-destructive testing (NDT) sensor for applications in quality control, academic research or NDT training. Yielding sub-micrometer displacement resolution, the sensor delivers accurate and reliable measurement results through clear and sharp phase-map imaging. The sensor can be configured with thermal, vacuum or vibration excitation systems, ideally to be used for fixed-setup applications.
The FlawScout sensor is contained in one, lightweight (3.4 kgs / 7.5 lbs) unit. With fully integrated imaging & control electronics, the sensor incorporates; a 2 Mpx CMOS camera, a fixed focal length lens, two (Class 3R) laser diodes, automatic shearing and phase-shifting piezos.
Istra4D, Dantec Dynamics’ advanced laser shearography software, is intuitive and simple to use. With a clear user workflow, users have easy control of all relevant measurement configuration parameters including brightness, shearing, projection and visualization settings. Users can easily perform real-time measurements and complete advanced post-processing analysis of acquired results. Whatever the NDT application, Istra4D is the imaging workhorse behind all of Dantec’s laser shearography systems.
