Genesis Systems Group (Davenport, Iowa), a recent start-up that claims to be the largest robotic systems builder in North America, showed at SAMPE 2012 its Nspect 210 robotic nondestructive inspection (NDI) system, featuring a high-speed ultrasonic array. Teamed with partner KUKA (Shelby Township, Mich.), which provided the 6-axis robotic arm, Genesis designed the system’s workcell. It includes a large water tank for part immersion, a bar-code scanning system, InspectionWare acquisition and analysis software, and the ability to conduct multiple inspection processes, including immersion, squirter or bubbler ultrasonic and eddy current methods.
