Transforming inspection economics with the next generation of Non-Destructive Evaluation (NDE)

As a champion case study for (UK Catapult) The National Composites Centre, Adaptix have a game-changing technology: UK SME’s affordable non-destructive testing solution to meet emerging challenges in the aerospace sector | National Composites Centre (

Adaptix have CE marked product which they are evolving after winning “fiercely competitive” ATI & NATEP InnovateUK grants, supported by a conglomerate of the leading aerospace primes to move us to NDE4.0 and facilitate Digital Twins.

Adaptix technology (via Digital Tomosynthesis) allows:

  • 1. R&D project crashing for faster evolution of new composite manufacturing methods and materials
  • 2. 3D X-ray for fast, routine use
  • 3. Uniquely deployable 3D X-ray for maintenance and manufacturing
  • 4. Unique dry-preform inspection
      1. – Finding faults/rework ~65% sooner in process
      2. – Reduces material waste and environmental impact
      3. – Reduces costs
      4. – Increases operating efficiency and effectiveness
  • 5. Digital Twins and NDE4.0 facilitation.

Adaptix allows Metal Additive inspection at the rate of manufacture.

  • After manufacture, place the part in our system
  • See powder in the ducts, porosity and voids in < 3 minutes of manufacture
  • Or visualise that it’s fit-for-purpose, with more data and more confidence.
