After an intense work developed by our Optical Microscopy laboratories, Titania has been qualified by Airbus in the AITM4-0003 test method, which determines the pore content in composite material using automatic image analysis. To achieve this important milestone, we have improved materialographic preparation of the composite material samples, in order to automate the pore detection by image analysis software; and the transition from manual micrograph assemblies to automatic ones.

Optical microscopy is one of the business lines for which Titania is currently betting, now reinforced by this technique that will not only allow the development of this type of testing method specifically for Airbus within the aerospace sector, but also apply it to others where demand of composite materials keeps on growing.
