Technical Description

The LTI-5200 is a compact, portable vacuum shearography system designed for large area inspection of aerospace, marine and rail composite and cored sandwich structures and components. The LTI-5200 vacuum attaches in any orientation. Increasing vacuum level allows imaging and measurement of subsurface defects. The system features automatic operation with easily programmed NDE Procedure Macros, automatic exposure and image storage. The LTI-5200 includes the Inspection Head with built-in digital shearography camera and Transit Case, Vacuum Generator/Computer Case, interconnect cables and standard vacuum hose length of 20 feet / 6 meters.
