NDT monitoring system for hard coatings

A new adaptive, online hard coating thickness measurement device is going to be developed. The idea of the innovation is to prevent the unwanted base material erosion through jetting. The sensor measures the coating thickness, which information is fed to water jetting device, in order to produce high control to removal of the coating.

The probe geometry and design will be optimised in order to monitor for the different types of HVOF coatings. The effect of the process environment and impurities to the monitoring are being taken into account in the development. NDT monitoring system may be applicable also in other fields of coating measurements than coating removal. Large need for accurate coating thickness measurements exist in many applications.
