Midas Installs New 10-axis Ultrasonic Inspection System
The system was fully manufactured at Midas-NDT in England before disassembly and delivery to the customer in Norway where full installation, commissioning and training was carried out as part of a turn-key operation.
The combination of all ten axes of movement allows the system to follow any component shape in a scanning envelope of 8000 millimeters by 2500 millimeters by 1200 millimeters and a full video presentation of system movement can be seen on the company website at www.midas-ndt.co.uk.
Complex curved shapes can be easily programmed using simple teach-and-learn techniques. This style of system is also capable of importing CATIA shape information and processing all necessary scanning parameters from the information to create a scan pattern. Any scan parameters can be stored and recalled by the operator using the given scan shape name. This allows a customer to carry out the inspection of multiple components of a similar shape.
This installation is the second C-GIS2 system to be supplied in the last twelve months following a recent installation in Burnley, England, of a similar system.
