A consortium comprising ETher NDE (St Albans), Sonemat (Coventry), Hybrid Manufacturing Technologies (Moira), Innvotek (London), Brunel Innovation Centre (Abington) and TWI (Abington) has won a grant to develop technology to inspect metal additive manufactured parts during the manufacturing process. The technology uses electromagnetic methods (electromagnetic acoustic transducer (EMAT) and eddy current (EC)) to detect defects and to monitor residual stress in additive manufacturing (AM) and is abbreviated a
