Glass-fiber and carbon-fiber based composite Industry

Measuring composite thickness or determining dielectric parameters of these composites

In today's rapidly evolving technological landscape, the carbon fiber and glass fiber industries have emerged as vital components of various sectors, driving innovation, sustainability, and efficiency. Carbon fiber's exceptional strength-to-weight ratio and glass fiber's remarkable durability have made them indispensable materials in aerospace, automotive, construction, renewable energy, and consumer electronics, among other domains. The demand for lightweight yet robust materials has skyrocketed, and these industries are at the forefront of meeting these demands while also addressing environmental concerns through improved production processes and reduced energy consumption.

Marveloc M-Ray for glass-fiber composite production

Marveloc M-Ray is a state-of-the-art sensor technology based on electromagnetic millimeter waves, designed to precisely measure the thickness and determine dielectric parameters of glass fiber. This advanced technology ensures non-destructive and non-invasive analysis, preserving the integrity of the material while delivering highly accurate results. With Marveloc M-Ray, manufacturers and researchers can streamline their processes, optimize product quality, and expedite research and development.

Marveloc U-Ray for carbon-fiber composite production

Marveloc U-Ray stands as a groundbreaking solution for carbon fiber analysis, setting new standards for accuracy and versatility. Carbon fiber's unique electric conductivity characteristics pose challenges in traditional measurement methods. However, our ultrasound sensor technology in the Marveloc U-Ray can overcome this challenge. By utilizing high-frequency sound waves, the U-Ray penetrates the material, providing accurate measurements of thickness without being affected by carbon fiber's electrical properties.
