Lock-in thermography shows defects and material properties below the visible surface
The combination of complex camera technology and automation allows new solutions in industrial production
Intego is an innovative medium-sized company located in Erlangen, Germany. Together with our team we develop and manufacture complex inspection systems for our customers worldwide.
Inspection systems with cameras operating in the visible wavelength range usually cannot detect sub-surface defects and sometimes even those on the surface are hard to find. In these cases, thermography can be a solution. It is an imaging technique used to visualize the IR radiation intensity of objects by employing IR cameras.
In active thermography, the excitation of the objects is performed electrically (direct connection, induction), mechanically (ultrasound, hot air) or by illumination (special lasers, LEDs, flash lamps). Very short heat pulses (10 ms) allow the generation of a measurable heat flow. Temperature differences at the surface can be an indication of defects inside the object.
To reliably detect these defects, Intego develops and produces its own IR cameras. The new high-end model Spica 640 HS has a high full frame rate > 300 Hz; the spectral range is 1.3 to 5.6 μm. The noise equivalent temperature difference is very small (< 20 mK) to ensure precise measurements.
Using thermography, various inspection objectives are achieved in a variety of applications.
Perhaps thermography is also the solution for your quality control. Please contact us.
