NDT System Computer Streamlines 100% Component Quality Inspection
The new RAM NDT system computer and software make analyzing, viewing and organizing data collected during testing easier. The new combination of hardware and software streamlines the 100% inspection process.
- Cincinnati, OH-KY-IN (1888PressRelease) November 17, 2011 - The Modal Shop's Nondestructive Testing Resonant Acoustic Method (NDT-RAM) systems (http://www.modalshop.com/ndt/Resonant-Acoustic-Method?ID=73) now incorporate a new industrial computer. NDT-RAM systems are designed to simplify your component part quality inspection and process monitoring. Intuitive software and reliable, rugged hardware make NDT-RAM systems ideal for 100% inspection of metal parts from the powdered metal, cast, forged or stamped forming processes.
Easy to use and friendly for the plant floor, the industrial grade NDT-RAM computer is able to meet the demands of a high volume production environment. A sealed keyboard, supported on a shelf beneath the computer, makes software navigation straightforward. A USB port is located on the computer, allowing users to save testing data before moving it to a new location or to import testing data or criteria from other units. The portability of setup information and collected data simplifies report generation.
The system computer runs with the newly released NDT-RAM 7.0 software. 7.0 is designed to make analyzing, viewing and organizing data collected during testing easier. The software allows users to set a larger number of required acceptance criteria, making part evaluation more precise. An expanded criteria set is ideal for challenging applications such as brake NVH (http://www.modalshop.com/ndt/Noise,-Vibration-and-Harshness?ID=506). New data resolution options increase the detail of measurements for the detection of smaller defects. A data collection screen allows users to integrate part specific information into the final testing report for a customized set of data.
NDT-RAM systems are ideal for manufacturers of powder metal, metal injection molded (MIM), castings, forgings or stampings. The industrial components and ease of automation make NDT-RAM perfectly suited for 100% inspection in the manufacturing environment. NDT-RAM systems, with the addition of software version 7.0, help companies that have substantial inspection costs, produce or use safety-critical parts, have significant scrap costs due to false rejects, or are striving to improve their part quality. With no part preparation required, this technique can successfully identify internal and external flaws due to cracks, voids, material density inconsistencies, dimensions, porosity and nodularity as well as missed manufacturing processes.
