Carbon Fiber Testing

The EddyCus® CF map series is especially developed to reveal defects in multi-ply carbon fabrics or composites. Not only the texture, but also the defects such as misalignment, distortion, wrinkles, overlaps, or delamination can be detected. Present defects are highlighted and shall be categorized by the user. Defect detection is feasible for the following carbon fiber composites:
  • Non-crimp fabrics
  • Braids & preforms
  • Multi-axial-fabrics
  • Carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP)
  • Dry carbon fabrics
  • Carbon fiber composites


  • Technical textile machinery
  • Automotive industry
  • Energy sector (pipes and tanks)
  • Aircraft industry
  • Civil engineering (bridges and technical structures)

Defect Detection

  • Misalignments
  • Undulations
  • Gaps
  • Fuzzy balls

In Inner Ply

  • Delaminations
  • Distortions
  • Overlaps
  • Wrinkles
EC-Scan Defect in Carbon Fiber Structure
EC-Scan Uniformity Carbon Fiber

Testing Devices

EddyCus® CF map 4040

EddyCus® map 4040 is a desktop system that maps carbon fiber textiles and composites regarding defects in inner layers. It suits the needs of R&D labs at universities or companies. Flat and slightly curved specimen can be investigated up to an area of 400 x 400 mm².

EddyCus® CF map 6060

EddyCus® map 6060 is an industrial testing stand designed for quick offline testing at critical locations (ROI) of parts or preforms. It conducts high resolution scans for the quality control of carbon fiber materials. Particularly, small to medium-sized parts of less-complex shape may be analyzed for defects in the carbon fiber texture.
