TPU School of Non-Destructive & Security annually presents its best developments at the forum. This year, TPU scholars presented a thermal flaw detector to be utilized in the production of a new domestic aircraft entirely consisting of composite materials. They also showed a radiometric complex for testing large-sized objects, a butt-welding facility and robotic complexes.


Among the presented developments is a radiographic complex for testing rotors of gas turbine engines. It allows detecting the smallest defects in the rotors of gas turbine engines of modern civil and military aircrafts.
