Eddy Current Testing in Wind Turbines
Posted: 2020-5-19Eddy current technology has long been used in nondestructive testing (NDT) for wind turbine tower welds, drivetrains and a wide range of spot inspections in O&M programs. It’s a fast, accurate, chemical-free method for detecting surface and sub-surface indications that are too small to see with the naked eye, including cracks, pits, corrosion and damage due to impact or fatigue.
Eddy current testing has the added benefit of producing an electronic inspection record for advanced analysis and repor...Read More.

Cygnus 1 IS Gauge Certified to IECEX Standards
Posted: 2020-5-6Cygnus Instruments is proud to announce that the Cygnus 1 IS Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge now has IECEx Zone 0 Certification.
In 1996 the IECEx was established through the initiative of the Ex industry and with support from certification bodies in the UK, France, Canada and Germany.
The principle reason for the creation of the IECEx was to create a global (as opposed to regional) system that would provide manufacturers with a single mechanism whereby testing and assessment for the Ex sector would only ...Read More.
DRIVE NDT Software Unified Workflows
Posted: 2020-5-5DRIVE NDT, a software solution developed by AAP NDT and DÜRR NDT, for the first time unifies the entire NDT workflow, including all test procedures in a single system: from order entry, the assignment of inspectors, equipment, instructions and standards, to test report generation, approval and archiving. Centralized administration permits the targeted control of all workflows and provides an overview of the status of all inspection orders in real-time.
As DRIVE NDT is a web-based application, it can be e...Read More.
