18.104.22.168 Preparation of Part. The main rotor blades shall be thoroughly cleaned. Refer to Preparation of Part or Area for
NDI, paragraph 1.4.4.
22.214.171.124 NDI Equipment Settings. Refer to Bond Test Equipment, paragraph 126.96.36.199.
Attach cable and probe to Bondmaster. Protect probe with Teflon tape and install in probe holder.
Turn on Bondmaster, press SPCL, and make the following adjustments:
Press SET and select DISPLAY PHASE.
Place probe on the good area of test blocks and press GOOD PART. Do this several times while moving
the probe to different spots in the good area of the standard. Note the video signature for each. Select
and enter a representative good area by pressing GOOD PART one last time.
Place probe on void area of test block and press BAD PART. Do this several times while moving the
probe slightly to different positions within the void area. Select and enter a position that gives a strong
difference between good and void areas. Use DIFF soft key to observe difference between good and bad
areas of test block.
If, during setup, the flying spot deflects upward or to the side when the probe passes over the
bad part instead of the desired down deflection toward the alarm box, press SPCL and toggle to
a different phase setting (90, 180, or 270), and repeat steps d. and e. Continue to try phase
setting until the flying spot moves in the desired down direction.
Place probe on good area of test block and press RUN. Flying spot should be near the top-center of the
ACTIVE screen. If not, press NULL. Slide probe from good to void area and note response from flying
spot. This response should provide both amplitude (vertical) and phase (horizontal) movement. The
default gate/alarm setting may be incorrect for this set-up. Turn off or reset gate/alarm as desired.
