On-going development
DiAMon Plus™ dielectric cure monitoring system is continuously adapted to new industrial sensing applications and process development stages for advanced manufacturing routes.
The advanced features under development include:
  • Wireless communication of dielectric sensors to the data acquisition platform
  • Database organisation of the acquired signals for statistical process control applications
  • Increased reliability of the signal processing routines for development of generic signal translation modules (material-state modelling, equivalent circuit analysis and adaptation of the sensor to the processing environment)
  • Implementation of the process control capability (optimisation and model-based control) to composites and other high temperature processing applications
In addition, there are intense research efforts in order to broaden the application areas and to enhance the system's functionalities.
