ASSURES is an Authentication Technology to identify rogue components (flawed, defective, counterfeit, substandard manufacturing) in additively manufactured parts
ASSURES has been proven to be extremely sensitive to:
Figure 1 shows the measured spectrum from ASSURES between a good part and one with a defect. Figure 2(a) and 2(b) show animations of the measured vibration modes between a good part and a defective one. More animations can be seen here: Complex Bracket Animations
