Virtual Image Processing – Paradigm Shift Through SimulationFactories are becoming increasingly automated. Production facilities are becoming more flexible, so that no new plants have to be built when switching to new products. Visual inspection system hardware configuration – the last nail preventing the inspection systems to be truly purpose-flexible and thus ready for the implementation as a part of Industry 4.0 process chain. Production lines are more and more versatile, and products are changing rapidly, confronting inspection systems with more complex surfaces...Read More.
FAA Revokes Repair Station Certificate of Puerto Rico NDT FirmThe U.S. Department of Transportations Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has issued an emergency order revoking the repair station certificate of Puerto Rico Industrial Non Destructive Testing (PRINDT) of Carolina, Puerto Rico.

8th MXS NDI Looking Below the SurfaceThe 8th Maintenance Squadron nondestructive inspection shop is responsible for ensuring the F-16 Fighting Falcon aircraft and its parts are of sound structure by identifying wear and tear before maintenance is necessary.
"We inspect things nondestructively by checking the structural integrity," said Staff Sgt. James Douglas, 8th MXS NDI craftsman. "We look for cracks to make sure that something isn’t going to break in flight. We take the known breaking point and we basically backtrack from there."
Vision Engineering Discusses Metrology in Aerospace ManufacturingIn this Q&A session, Guven Turemen, group commercial metrology manager, and Stephen Sanderson, group inspection manager, from visual equipment specialists, Vision Engineering discuss how the company’s systems are applied to the field of aerospace manufacturing.
Founded by motorsport engineer Rob Freeman, Vision Engineering’s history dates back to the 1950s when its first borescopes were used for the inspection of racing car engines and early aero engines. Now its microscopes and other vision tech...Read More.
