New Inspection Systems
A Better Way to Build Inspection Systems
Purpose-built with Automation
Purpose-built inspection systems are now practical. NDE vendors have traditionally relied on a “one size fits all” approach to systems design, using canned software that cannot easily be modified. Because the features are already built-in, the user often ends up with an inspection system that contains unnecessary functionality and may lack something that would have improved the functionality of the system. InspectionWare and Winspect 7 provide a way to reduce the complexity of NDE software development, so it is easier to create customized systems.
Running everything on one software platform reduces complexity. Many inspection systems now require several software platforms to accommodate multiple inspection techniques and instruments. Integrating everything on one platform simplifies inspection work because operators need to learn only one application. New inspection methods and instruments can be added as needed without affecting the system’s architecture.
NDE is moving towards full inspection automation. Automation makes inspection set-ups and scanning faster. Fully automated inspection systems can be integrated with the manufacturing process so parts don’t need to be taken offline. Automation improves inspection consistency by reducing the variability between operators and increases the flow rate of the whole system by creating inspections which can be performed at the speed of production.
