To keep up with the competition, manufacturers must continually look for methods of streamlining production while maintaining product quality. Automated nondestructive testing (NDT) processes can often address both issues by decreasing overall production time and helping make best use of valuable NDT personnel. Manufacturers producing complex components or a highly varied product mix may be skeptical that automated NDT can be successfully implemented in their specific production environment. Fortunately, the many available forms of automation present multiple options for manufacturers looking to increase the accuracy and consistency of their inspection processes.
In her new article, Increasing Competitiveness Through Automated Nondestructive Testing, EWI Project Engineer Ruth Sunderman discusses the various methods of automating inspection processes, and the positive impacts that these techniques can have on productivity while maximizing the effectiveness of skilled NDT personnel.
