DIAMon Plus™ is system that monitor the curing process DIAMon Plus INASCO sensor
Flow charts and binder polymerization

DIAMon Plus™ - is an industrial proven system that monitors in real-time the curing process of a composite part.

It employs combined sensing from tool mounted dielectric sensors, flow sensors and thermocouples, integrated with interactive and scalable software.

Real-time sensing combined with cure kinetics modeling provides a material state map that can be used for Process Monitoring, Optimisation and Control.

The manudacturer is able to accurately
