Cracks for aerospace industry

The constant need to improve existing and to create new NDT-methods poses challenges to the Aerospace industry. Samples with true natural cracks can be used to test and develop new inspection techniques and confirm the performance of existing techniques.

Trueflaw cracks are grown with natural thermal fatigue process and therefore have the same characteristics as service-induced cracks. We can control the length, depth and location of the cracks.

Cracks can be produced on real components. Purpose made or even scrapped samples can be used. The crack growth process is automated and we can work on several samples in parallel. This allows highly efficient manufacturing even for large amount of cracks needed for POD evaluation.

We are here to help you. Please call Kaisa Miettinen (, +358 50 3656862) or Iikka Virkkunen (, +358 45 6354415) to discuss more.

Ready-made cracked samples

Ready-made sample sets provide a cost effective alternative to custom samples and can be used for process verification, vendor evaluation or POD estimation. All cracks are natural thermal fatigue cracks and can be used for any NDT-method.
