Non-destructive evaluation to control new casting processes

Light metal alloys with optimal weight specific strength are increasingly being applied for casting of critical components in larger constructions, for example automotive components or components in aircraft. The application sectors set continuously higher demands to the quality control, which is inherently due to the available new and faster production methods. An important parameter is that defective castings are worthless and that defects usually do not occur isolated, but are due to process errors. Hence there is a need for 100% inspection, as well as an aspiration that the information extracted from the non-destructive analysis is used for iterative process improvements.

Specifically, the joining of quality issues and process parameters pertaining to new casting technologies, forms the basis for a broad EU-research project - QUME (On-line process & quality optimisation for the manufacturing of cast metallic parts), a project on NDT integrated with process management. Even though the specific project entails casting process optimisation and process management, there are many general applications for the developed principles and methods.
