Different carbon frame wall thickness is colorcoded represented, just like pores or accident damages.
The development, to design nearly all attachments of a carbon frame from CFK material, is very dangerous. Safety-relevant construction units, for example saddle bracket or fork, are loaded on bend. But, CFK material advantage is tensile load. Bending forces should be avoided. In order to guarantee the quality, a non destructive examination of these parts should be accomplished.
We perform quality controls fast and competently. The measurement of a saddle bracket cost about 50 euros, a carbon fork 70 euros, a carbon frame 100 euros. (Net prices without transport costs). All further combinations or independent devices are offered on request.

Mapping of the covered repair places of a vehicle. Only the blue ranges show the original condition A common question prior to a car purchase decision is: Is the vehicle in a good condition, or has it lack of accident perhaps covered. For rebuild classic cars the question is: Where and how this vehicle was repaired. These questions can be answered simply by measuring the vehicles. The measurement of a vehicle takes 30 minutes including evaluation. Costs will be arround 100 Euros. The two sides of a vehicle are scanned. A heat pulse warmes up the measuring field and the heat flow is measured as function of the time. Smallest differences in the color coating, or covered repair area can be identified in this way..
