NDT Solutions Inc. (NDTS, New Richmond, Wis.) and Genesis Systems Group (Davenport, Iowa) have teamed up to develop automated robotic nondestructive inspection (NDI) systems. One result is the NSpect 210, a two-station, 6-axis robotic work cell designed for automated NDI processes. The NSpect family has been developed to provide cost-effective, accurate inspection solutions for large volumes of parts. The system combines ultrasonic inspection data with robot positional data and presents it as A-scan, B-scan and C-scan images.
