Lambient Technologies designs and produces instruments for real-time analysis of the curing of thermosets and advanced composite materials such as those used in aerospace, automotive, and wind power applications. Our products offer unique insights into how these materials react and change during curing, processing, and manufacturing. Armed with this critical data, users can proceed with research, quality testing, and final production, confident in the integrity of their processes and materials—and in the reliability of their finished products.

R&D

For researchers working on new formulations of thermoset materials, it's critical to gather specific data about material reaction. Lambient Technologies' products provide exact details on how time and temperature affect materials processing—improving efficiencies and cutting research and development costs.

Qa/qc

Lambient Technologies' solutions reveal cure state in real time during quality assurance and quality control. With our CureView software, users can overlay data from different cures to compare ion viscosity data in QA/QC, allowing potentially costly errors to be identified and addressed before materials move to final production.

manufacturing

In manufacturing of raw resins, sheet/bulk molding compounds, and prepregs, and in finished products such as bath fixtures, wind turbine blades, and aerospace and automotive components, Lambient Technologies' solutions show cure progress in real time, giving users the data they need to ensure the quality of end products.

 

what is dielectric cure monitoring (dea)? 

Dielectric cure monitoring, also known as dielectric analysis (DEA), is a technique for measuring degree of cure in advanced composites such as bulk, sheet, and epoxy molding compounds, carbon fiber prepregs, adhesives, paints and coatings, and other thermosets. Compared to traditional cure testing, dielectric cure monitoring delivers faster, less expensive, and more precise and comprehensive results. Materials can be tested in R&D and QA/QC applications, and these tests can be repeated in manufacturing. With the data gained from DEA, companies save time and avoid serious errors that can result in faulty materials and failure-prone end products. 


NEW WHITE PAPER: yes, you can measure composite cure through vacuum bags and release films

In manufacturing of automotive, aerospace, and wind power components, companies need methods to cleanly release finished parts from molds. Release films and vacuum bags are often used for this purpose, but since they are electrically insulating, their use can complicate cure monitoring. Measurement methods based on AC signals are the answer. To find out why, fill out this form to receive our free white paper.

Components such as wind turbine blades are produced in molds, often with insulating layers. This can present issues with measuring cure state.
