12/18/14 – Hochbeanspruchte Bauteile benötigen anspruchsvolle Prüfverfahren. Delta Airlines zum Beispiel wendet zur Übertemperaturprüfung von Turbinenschaufeln die prozesskompensierte Resonanzprüfung (Process Compensated Resonance Testing) an. Und ein spezieller „PCRT“-Tester prüft Keramikkugeln für Hochleistungseinsätze in Turbinenkugellagern – zwei von vielen Anwendungsbeispielen einer zerstörungsfreien Werkstoffprüfmethode mit Zukunft.
