[Funding alert] Amsterdam-based Eddytec Secures Funding to Identify Flaws in Carbon Fibre Composites

Amsterdam-based Eddytec secures funding in Form of convertible loan of €300,000 from the North Holland Innovation Fund to Identify Flaws in Carbon Fibre Composites.

Amsterdam-based Eddytec secures funding in Form of convertible loan of €300,000 from the North Holland Innovation Fund to Identify Flaws in Carbon Fibre Composites.

Eddytec’s innovative approach makes it possible to detect defects and damage (such as cracks and delamination) in aircraft parts made of carbon fiber composites using eddy current technology.

This non-contact, non-destructive testing method can achieve high speeds and simplify the measuring process through automation. The use of this technology is expected to reduce inspection and maintenance costs and at the same time increase the available flying time of aircraft.

This will enable cost reductions for carbon fiber composite parts and assemblies, allowing further development of key technologies and carbon fiber innovation to trickle down to areas and markets that previously could not support the high costs of the material, but would benefit from the introduction of composites.

Dr. Alina Chanaewa, co-founder and CEO of Eddytec: _”I am convinced that our technology, developed at the University of Amsterdam and the Hogeschool van Amsterdam, will not only contribute to faster and more cost-effective maintenance procedures in the aviation industry, but will also be a valuable tool in the production and recycling of composites. The North Holland Innovation Fund will support the first crucial steps to convert this technology into a product.”

Dr. Rudolf Sprik, Associate Professor at the University of Amsterdam and co-founder of Eddytec: “Fundamental research in a university research laboratory can have surprising applications in technology. The use of eddy currents for testing carbon composites is a good example of this . ”

Dr. Christiaan Schoemaker, lecturer at Hogeschool van Amsterdam and co-founder of Eddytec: “By using the latest software and hardware developments, Eddy currents can enable the aviation industry to expand their detection for carbon fiber composites, something that has been a challenge until now. has been. Taking into account the need for more specialized NDT equipment to inspect carbon composite structures, an opportunity is seen: Eddy currents will most likely become one of the key technologies within the market.”
