Detecting Air Gap Between Two Aluminum Sheets: A Sample Application
In this sample application, the goal is to detect the presence of an air gap between two assembled aluminum sheets. The specifications of the sheets and the dimensions of the air gap are as follows:
- Thickness: 0.5 mm
- Conductivity: 16 MS/m
- Thickness: 0.8 mm
- Conductivity: 19 MS/m
Air Gap: 90 µm
The objective is to utilize non-destructive testing techniques, such as the eddy current method, to accurately identify and measure the air gap between these two aluminum sheets. By employing the appropriate instruments, including Sciensoria’s Z-Scope*TL2M21, precise and reliable detection of the air gap can be achieved, ensuring the quality and integrity of the assembled components.
The image below illustrates the process of obtaining the airgap signature using the advanced eddy current non-destructive device, Z-Scope*TL2M21.

Non-Destructive Testing of Electrical Contact Pads (Métalor SA, Switzerland, https://metalor.com/)
Below is a video clip showcasing the non-destructive testing of electrical contact pads commonly used in circuit breakers. An electrical contact pad has two sides: one side ensures the opening and closing of the electrical circuit and is specially treated to withstand electric arcs. The other face is coated with a layer of solder alloy, intended for soldering to the internal circuit of the circuit breaker.
The non-destructive test using eddy currents ensures the presence of the solder layer and verifies the correct orientation of the pads along the welding line.
This application can also be applied to control the thickness of plating/tinning on metals or the metallization of plastic or carbon composites.
