FOGALE nanotech, an engineering company created in 1983, is now a worldwide known reference in the field of high accuracy dimensional metrology. Thanks to our multidisciplinary team with expertise in capacitive, optical, inductive and ultrasonic metrology and a strong scientific background, we provide standard and customized systems adapted to your implementation and utilization constraints. Our standard products and our engineering know-how are acknowledged in the most demanding fields of industry and laboratories (e.g. automotive, defense, aeronautics, nuclear industry) in Europe, USA and Asia.

Fogale nanotech Turbomachinery Measurements department proposes a cost effective turnkey solution for turbomachinery blade testing and monitoring. Based on capacitive technology, with sensors from low temperatures (<200°C/392°F) for static and dynamic measurements, up to high temperature harsh environment turbine applications, up to 1300°C (2372°F) gas temperature without cooling, with conditioning electronics MC925 for capacitive sensors, and with acquisition and processing server, the Capablade Fusion system enables Blade Health Monitoring in real-time thru Blade Tip Clearance measurements and Blade Tip Timing measurements (non-intrusive blade vibrations measurement Technique). The advantages of the Blade Health Monitoring are the prevention of costly breakdown by monitoring the safe operation of the machine, utilization of the machine at best performance with use of active clearance control, and reduction of downtime costs with the predictive maintenance made possible thanks to the blade mechanical integrity data collected during operation. The consequence is a significant extension of the GT operability and per se a significant return on plant assets.
