Terahertz Non-destructive Image Inspection System
Date : 2021.08.20
• Terahertz non-destructive image inspection system - Terahertz waves are electromagnetic waves that fall within the intermediate range of radio waves and light waves, and thus are harmless to the human body due to their low output energy. As the test has the function of automatically finding and discharging mixed foreign matters by projecting terahertz waves on to the product transported in the manufacturing process, the test can be useful when inspecting the mixed contents of industrial products such as tires and shoes, as well as food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic products, etc.

• The global market of the terahertz system expected to continue to grow – According to the Korea Electrotechnology Research Institute, the value of the domestic market for non-destructive testing reached KRW 3 trillion in 2017, while that of the global terahertz wave non-destructive testing market reached KRW 60 trillion. Currently, metal detectors and X-ray inspection systems are mainly used in non-destructive testing; however, those systems have technical limitations in that low-density foreign matter such as insects and vinyl cannot be detected, and the internal defects of rubber and plastic materials cannot be tested. Accordingly, the terahertz non-destructive image inspection system is expected to lead thenon-destructive testing market across an extensive range.
