We are pleased to partner with Reliabotics as they “Rethink What’s Possible” at the Fabtech 2018 conference and exhibition. Join us in Atlanta at booth C13042! FABTECH covers the latest trends in metal forming, fabricating, welding and metal finishing.
Please join us at this event by The American Society of Mechanical Engineers in Pittsburgh. Trilion’s very own Jack Irwin will be presenting a paper titled “Advanced Structural Testing with Optical Metrology.” The paper will be presented on Wednesday, November 14th, 2018 in room 307.
We wanted to share an exciting workshop opportunity for you and your team! Trilion will be putting on a workshop: Process Optimization Using Digital Image Correlation (DIC) for Petroleum Engineering Applications. The workshop will be held at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette on November 12th, 2018 from 12:30-5:00 PM.
The presentations will be on using ARAMIS for full-field, non-contact strain and displacement measurements in oil and gas applications. We are pleased to be joined by guest speaker, Professor Mehdi Mokharti from ULL regarding the Characterization of Complex Fracture Propagation using DIC. Which is sure to provide you with great information! The workshop will conclude with a Q&A and refreshments.

Join us Wednesday, December 5th from 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM as we host a webinar with Photron high-speed camera. The webinar will be hosted by two world-class engineers who are experts in their respected fields. You’re not going to want to miss this great event!
Digital image correlation (DIC) is a widely used full-field measurement technique, in which a calibrated stereo camera pair determines the 3D coordinates of thousands of points within a dot pattern that is applied with spray paint or ink.
During rapid post-processing, reference coordinates are subtracted from each measurement frame, thus obtaining full-field 3D displacements and directional and principal strains that can be viewed as color maps, movies, vectors, time histories, etc. The system can determine local displacements at the micron level despite significant rigid body motion.
This seminar will discuss the general benefits of full-field measurements, which include visualizing strain gradients and hot spots, verification, and iteration of finite element models, and making otherwise impossible measurements. Digital high-speed cameras have been used for DIC at speeds up to 300,000 frames per second, but many applications only require 1,000-10,000 frames per second. Much more data is obtained much more easily than with strain gauges, draw wires, LVDTs, etc.
We will review important high-speed camera features and options as well as the different price/performance points available in the Photron product line, and will provide details on the new FASTCAM Nova camera model and PFV4 control software.
Numerous high-speed applications will be shown, including:
Biomechanics Impact Testing
Helmet Ballistic Impacts
Hopkinson Bar High Strain Rate Testing
Explosive Loading of Sheet Metal
Rotor Blade Vibrations on Hovering Helicopter
Rocket Nozzle Deformations
Parachute Strains During Drop Tests
Microelectronics and Device Drop Testing
Air Blast Effect Testing

On Thursday, January 17, 2019, at 11:00 a.m. EST, Trilion invites you to the webinar “Identifying Operational Deflection Shapes and Mode Shapes with Optical 3D Metrology” held by our partner, GOM. Join the Webinar and learn how you can benefit from synchronous full-field 3D data in the analysis of your vibration tests!
The following topics will be discussed:
- Benefits of optical metrology in vibration analysis
- Vibration analysis on impact event test: Car door slam test
- Also vibration tests with harmonic excitation
- Vibration analysis on a truck’s cooling fan in operation
- ARAMIS SRX – the right 3D DIC sensor for vibration analysis
- Live demonstration: From 3D measuring data to operational deflection shapes
