Abaris announced that Michael J. Hoke, president of Abaris Training Resources Inc., of Reno, Nev., will join Steve Marks from I-CAR to give a presentation titled “Understanding Carbon Fiber Design and Repair” in the I-CAR Demo Zone at the NACE | CARS Expo and Conference on July 23rd from 3:30-4:15 p.m., and again on July 24th from 2-2:45 p.m.
In addition to the I-CAR presentations, Hoke will be available during normal show hours Thursday-Saturday in the Fiat-Chrysler of America (FCA) meeting room with additional demonstrations and opportunities to discuss carbon fiber structural repair methodologies. Portable hot bond repair equipment from Heatcon Composite Systems will be on display, as well as a portable vacuum pump from Wichitech Industries. Hoke will be fielding questions about how carbon fiber repairs are performed and how to obtain high-quality, hot-bonded repairs.
In addition, a special demonstration of non-destructive inspection technologies will occur simultaneously at the Abaris table in collaboration with Dr. Jaswinder Sandhu of Santech Systems, Inc. Sandhu will be using the DolphiCam ultrasonic array camera to demonstrate how internal damage and other flaws can be detected in carbon fiber structures.
