VoyageIRTM, manufactured by Thermal Wave Imaging, breaks the price/performance barrier with an unsurpassed level of sensitivity and flexibility in a portable system. For less than the price of many IR cameras, VoyageIR provides a complete inspection solution in a hand-held package.
VoyagerIR is based on Thermographic Signal Reconstruction (TSR), TWI’s industry leading signal processing technique, which allows unmatched sensitivity that is comparable to full scale systems. Its flexible architecture lets the operator to configure heat source, camera and signal processing to match the application.
Whether its impact damage, trapped water, delamination in composites or corrosion in Al structures, VoyagerIR is ready to go wherever it is required. VoyagerIR is extremely flexible and can use alternative heat sources and IR cameras tailored to specific application requirements.
The system is ideally suited for on-aircraft maintenance applications such as the detection of trapped water and impact damage in composite structures, and in field situations where inspection speed and setup time are critical. VoyagerIR allows the inspector to set up the system and perform the complete inspection in minutes compared to current solutions that are often too large, costly or complex for field applications.
Some of the key advantages offered by VoyageIR include the following:
- Easy to Use
- Low Cost
- TSR Processing
- Handheld Operation
- Single Case Package
- Data Fusion Integrates UT A-Scan
NDT Data Fusion:
With VoyagerIR’s Data Fusion capability, users can “map” the sub-surface characteristics of a part using thermography, then merge the picture of the sample with point data generated by other NDI testing procedures such as A-Scan ultrasound, eddy current or bondmaster. VoyagerIR complements the other NDT methods by quickly identifying potential defect zones and combining data to establish a greater level of confidence. This multi-prong approach helps lower overall costs to maintain and operate critical equipment and establishs a new paradigm for NDT in the field.
