3D Visualization Boosts Strain Data Interpretation and Application

Plotting current strain along a sensor can easily be performed on complex components by Luna’s ODiSI 6000 system. High Definition Fiber Optic Sensing (HD-FOS) provides a wealth of measurements, but these may only have meaning to those who were involved with the test unless preceded with thorough explanation. Members of the design, testing or manufacturing teams need to understand the data, but they may be remote or…Read More

Tire Tech 2019

TeraMetrix, Luna’s terahertz measurement division, will be attending the Tire Technology Expo this week in Hannover, Germany. On Tuesday, March 5th at 10:55am our partners at Bridgestone will be presenting how terahertz (THz) measurement and TeraMetrix technology is being used to capture online measurements of critical features such as total ply thickness and cord balance to gain a clear advantage in producing higher quality products…Read More

Live, In-Vehicle Strain Monitoring Provides HD Data on Performance of Lightweight Materials

The automotive industry is working towards more sustainable vehicles and lower carbon footprints. One of the ways to achieve this is by decreasing the weight of vehicle components by using composites and other lightweight materials. Compared to commonly used metals, these futuristic materials can be more difficult to model due to more complex failure mechanics and manufacturing processes. High-density strain data can help validate models,…Read More
