Testing NDT Methods for Hybrid Diecastings

To promote industrial-scale production of advanced component designs, researchers review available methods to identify the best possibilities for inline quality testing

In the high-tech world, in commodity-grade consumer products, and in between across the vast span landscape of design engineering, “lightweight” is the defining principle. It follows that products and systems designed to achieve low-mass or lightweight objectives frequently incorporate specialty alloys or composite materials. “Hybrid” structures that combine fiber composite materials and/or wiring with lightweight metal alloys are a recent devlopment, and may be
