Clearing NDT Inspections in Aerospace and Automotive Parts Industries: 8 Essential Techniques
Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) enables increased yields and improved quality alongside cost savings - the ideal scenario for manufacturers. Here, we’re examining 8 crucial NDT techniques for aerospace and automotive manufacturers.
The power of AI in Non Destructive Testing (NDT)
NDTMeasuring twice to cut once: Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) methods are a crucial step in quality control processes for industries ranging from automotive to art. But evaluating and testing materials for defects is a technological challenge, with time consuming and labor-intensive workflows that have been difficult to automate - until now. As the artificial intelligence and fourth industrial revolutions unfold, NDT methodologies like digital radiography are being refined and optimized for the future. Here, we’re taking a look at the journey NDT has taken to get here, and what it stands to gain through the adoption of AI.
NDT in the oil & gas industry for higher efficiency & safety
NDTX-RAYThe oil and gas industry relies heavily on inspection for quality assurance, while ensuring that all equipment is running reliably and safely. With regulations such as ASME and API, oil platforms, refineries, power stations, and oil and gas pipelines must be constantly checked for corrosion, erosion, or any imperfections that could lead to dangerous conditions, critical failures, or worse, catastrophic incidents. Inspection is carried out through Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) Techniques. NDT is a critical process that can be used to evaluate, analyze, and test the properties of materials without causing any harm or damage. Infinitely important for upstream and downstream oil and gas companies, NDT must be carried out efficiently and accurately to ensure smooth operation.
International NDT Standards To Look For
NDTX-RAYNon-destructive testing (NDT) is paramount for quality assurance. Used to determine the quality of pipe welding and detect defects, NDT is infinitely important to ensure suitability and safety in oil and gas pipes, aircrafts, shipyards, manufacturing equipment, and many other uses. Quality in NDT testing is of upmost importance, as anything missed in testing can lead to catastrophic consequences. For this reason, there are several international NDT standards in place that govern the quality of NDT testing methods. These standards layout appropriate methods and techniques for testing, inspection, and evaluation to ensure optimal results of NDT activities.
CNR vs SNR , WHAT RADIOLOGICAL TECHNOLOGISTS NEED TO KNOW
NDTX-RAYContrast-to-noise ratio (CNR) analysis is a method of evaluating contrast resolution in an X-ray image. The CNR gives evaluation results similar to those of a visual assessment. As a result, it is frequently used clinically as a physical index for image quality control, performance comparison of modalities, and quantitative evaluation of the detectability of lesions/defects.
MEASURING DOUBLE WALL PIPE THICKNESS WITH OUR UPGRADED VEO SOFTWARE
NDTX-RAYFrequent NDT pipe inspection is aimed at assessing any changes to the pipe wall thickness, which involves testing for corrosion and erosion as well as examining the quality of welds in pipes.
DRUG INTERDICTION OPERATION & X-RAYS
SecurityX-RAYDuring an inspection of a vehicle for drugs or drug related items, LEOs will call for the support of a K9 unit to detect the presence of drugs in a vehicle. If detected, the LEO now has authority to physically inspect vehicle to identify the exact location of the drugs. This often requires the LEO to basically disassemble the interior of a vehicle to retrieve the drugs in question.
ASSESSING UXOs USING DIGITAL RADIOGRAPHY
SecurityX-RAYUnexploded ordnance (UXO) are explosive weapons such as bombs, shells, ammunition and mines that failed to explode and still pose a risk of detonation. UXOs aren't just a result of live fire training
IMPROVISED EXPLOSIVE DEVICE (IED) DETECTION
SecurityX-RAYAs IEDs can be composed of a huge range of different components, and their appearance is often well concealed, it is much harder for them to be identified by sight. Vidisco’s portable X-ray
IED X-RAY DETECTION HELPS FIGHT BACK
SecurityX-RAYIn the past, the ability to pull out an entire portable X-Ray system from a small bag was considered a fantasy, but today due to developments in technology this dream has finally become a reality.
