Flaw Detection Gets Smart with Robotic NDT
Robotic eddy current testing promises to improve flaw detection at the same time it reduces in-service failures.
|A robotic eddy current probe inspects an automotive spindle. The pencil type probe follows the spindle’s profile as it rotates. Any flaws in the material generate a signal which indicates a flaw. A part handling robot (not shown) places the part in the spindle and then either accepts or rejects it depending on the test outcome. Source: UniWest|
