The first 3D permeability bench
Today Easyperm is the only system on the market that offers an industrial solution for measuring the permeability of composite reinforcements through thickness (Z) and in-plane (X, Y).
We use an innovative technology for measuring and evaluating the capacity of dry reinforcements to be impregnated by liquid resins. It is also an extremely reliable quality control system.
Permeability is a crucial step in performing filling simulations for large and complex parts, but also for process optimization in the case of high production rates.
The bench Easyperm* can be used to characterize all types of fiber (glass, carbon, aramid, flax, hemp, etc.), while minimizing the amount of material needed.
Easyperm is also a reliable quality control system, because it relies on pressure measurement via a network of sensors, which is then post-processed using Darcy’s law. The physical nature of this measurement eliminates any human interpretation error.
