Case Study: DART – automated residual stress measurement

Our latest case study highlights the many benefits of the DART™ automated measurement system, a tool we at Hill Engineering developed specifically to improve near-surface residual stress measurement techniques such as hole drilling and TRUEslot®.

Near-surface residual stress data is critical when assessing material performance, optimizing design, validating models, evaluating field failures, and executing quality assurance programs. Hill Engineering’s DARTTM is an industry-leading tool for efficient, precise, and reliable near-surface residual stress measurements. The DARTTM overcomes the limitations of existing residual stress measurement equipment and includes everything required to perform state-of-the-art measurements in accordance with industry specifications.

Residual stress measurements with the DARTTM are easy to complete. A user interface guides you through set-up, then takes over for automated measurement execution and residual stress calculation.

For clear visualization of the DART’s many features and ease-of-use, watch our upcoming vlog which showcases the device in action. This includes footage of the different measurement techniques, as well as user interaction.

The DARTTM has proven to meet our high internal standards for data quality and is currently in use in multiple facilities throughout the world. It could be in your facility soon.
