These products have been developed for improved quality assurance of welds with less time & labor consumption and higher efficiency. With RT this entire process can be performed within minutes as against the conventional method which takes around 3 days to perform the same task.
The second technology i.e. UT performs the quality assurance using Ultrasound in an advanced mode. The AI enabled Ultrasound Testing completely replaces the harmful conventional radiation based X-ray technique in quality assurance of welds. It uses the ultrasound sensors with an intelligent image reconstruction technology to provide high resolution, real-time digital image of the inside of the welds for automatic evaluation of the images to provide fast and accurate detection of defects.
