Proven Benefits Moving from Film to Computed Radiography Posted: Qualitech AG is the largest independent accredited material testing center in Switzerland with over 130 employees in several locations throughout the country. Qualitech first began computed radiography in 2012 with a DÜRR NDT HD-CR 35 NDT imaging plate scanner and since then have processed several thousand images with the system. Currently four HD-CR 35 NDT units are in use by the company primarily for the inspection of weld quality of tubing for chemical plants and district heating systems. The portabil ...Read More.
Intel Develops Drone Mapping Methods for Downstream Facilities Posted: Aerial modelling and inspections using commercial-grade drones offer compelling advantages for the resource sector by increasing safety, saving time and reducing survey costs. Airscope*, a Perth, Australia-based inspections and asset visualization company, has used the Intel® Falcon™ 8+ drone to extend these benefits further by developing computer-generated 3-D models of entire hydrocarbon processing facilities off the North West shelf of Australia and in the Cooper Basin, effectively bringing the field int ...Read More.
Improved X-ray Computed Tomography for Advanced Manufacturing Posted: Innovations such as 3D printing, which enable the manufacturing of complex components, are advancing faster than the necessary quality control systems. An EU-funded project, INTERAQCT, has fine-tuned techniques for fast and accurate CT model acquisition, with special emphasis on 3D printed, composite and multi-material parts, for improved reliability of measurement and defect detection. Improved X-ray Computed Tomography for quality control of advanced manufactured parts. A consequence of advanced manuf ...Read More.
Nuclear Industry Putting Trust in UAS Posted: When an engineer first suggested using a drone to inspect two concrete pressurized water reactor (PWR) containment domes at American Electric Power’s Cook Nuclear Plant, David Aubrey, who oversees these inspections, was hesitant to trust such a new technology with such a critical task. The engineering program manager didn’t know much about unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) at the time, except for what he’d seen in the news. But after doing more research and learning about the cost savings and safety improveme ...Read More.
ON Semiconductor Introduces Highest Resolution 35mm Image Sensor to Date Posted: ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ON), driving energy efficient innovations, is extending capabilities for critical high resolution industrial imaging with the introduction of a new 43 megapixel (MP) resolution, charge-coupled device (CCD) image sensor in the convenient 35 mm optical format. The KAI-43140 is ideal for use in applications where both very high resolution image capture and excellent image uniformity is required, such as end of line inspection of high-definition (HD) and ultra-high-definition (UHD) fla ...Read More.
IPC Leads the Way Bringing Modern Technology to Bridge Inspections Posted: Human beings are creatures of habit, and most are loath to move out of their comfort zone. This perennial truth is apparent in many areas, but in technology, its impact appears formidable and challenging, with potential to bring about national disasters. American writer and Professor of Biochemistry, Isaac Asimov, speaking at the Newark College of Engineering in New Jersey, once said, "I discovered, to my amazement that all through history there had been resistance … and bitter, exaggerated, last-stit ...Read More.
Idaho State University Researchers Use Thermal Imaging to Retrieve Serial Numbers Posted: Idaho State University Department of Chemistry researchers are using thermal imaging – and a lot of complicated math formulas – to develop a nondestructive means of recovering defaced or scraped serial numbers from stolen items such as guns or vehicles. Law enforcement agencies could potentially use these recovered numbers to return stolen items or use them to investigate forensic leads. "Our process has worked on a lot of different test samples and on one real sample, but we are working with two agen ...Read More.
High Speed Laser Radar Coordinate Measuring System Posted: Laser Radar (LR) is a laser based measuring technology that is gaining ever increasing focus from automotive and aerospace OEMs due to its speed and ability to bring automated absolute CMM quality measurements to the production line. The Nikon Metrology Laser Radar solution provides automated, non-contact measurement capability for medium to large-volume applications of up to 50 meter radius. This next generation of metrology system precisely measures geometry without requiring photogrammetry t ...Read More.
Metal Fatigue Solutions Opens NYC Office Posted: Metal Fatigue Solutions (MFS), producer of the next generation of advanced Nondestructive Testing (NDT) and Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) technology systems for major civil and industrial infrastructure, today announced it has opened an office in New York City's Empire State Building. MFS' newly established East Coast regional headquarters will serve a growing customer base whose companies or projects are located in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Maryland and others. It also provides increased a ...Read More.
User Spotlight – Nick Vass MIIMS, Registered Marine Surveyor Posted: Popular with marine surveyors, the Cygnus 4 ultrasonic thickness gauge was employed in the pre-purchase survey for a Migrant 36 steel cutter. Conducted ashore, the thickness gauging inspection covers the hull, superstructures, keel, and rudder. The hull has been coated with paint above the waterline and with epoxy resin and blue antifouling paint below the waterline. But thanks to the Cygnus-Pioneered Multiple Echo technique, the gauge was able to measure the remaining metal thickness without the need to re ...Read More.
