The NSpect family of Non-Destructive Inspection (NDI) Systems from Genesis Systems Group is making quite an impression. By combining ATI End-Effectors, KUKA Robots, and vast engineering expertise, Genesis creates more efficient methods of NDI that encourage safety and increase quality. Genesis’ customers have confidence in NSpect Products as well, the company has integrated more than 30 NSpect Systems in the last five years.
The purpose of NDI is to evaluate components and finished goods for structural integrity and fitness of use while keeping them intact. Traditionally, NDI inspection methods are performed by qualified operators and equipment; inspection data is gathered and interpreted by a trained analyst. Each NDI system’s configuration depends on the type of parts, as well as industry or customer-specific standards, which leads to a lot of variation from one application to another. Industries such as aerospace and medical manufacturing may require 100% inspection of finished parts and supporting documentation before shipping to the customer. High-volume manufacturing processes, like automotive assembly, necessitate repeatable and accurate testing protocols, which can be difficult to achieve with manual processes. Genesis streamlines NDI with ATI‘s Tool Changers, Collision Sensors, and custom-designed Utility Modules; thereby reducing manual labor requirements and process variability, and improving productivity.
