As manmade infrastructure throughout the world continues to expand and mature, humans must constantly assess the integrity of their carbon fiber components. In recent years, manual inspections are being replaced by automated non-destructive inspection methods made possible by robotic systems.
Manufacturers also use non-destructive inspection to inspect their products. Like most consumers and businesses, you probably demand high quality and consistency from the products you purchase. Today’s manufacturers use non-destructive testing to ensure product integrity and reliability, as well as to test compliance with government regulations.
Benefits of Robotic Systems in Non-Destructive Testing
Industries need to be able to test structural integrity non-invasively to eliminate waste. And they want to do so fast to improve efficiency. Non-destructive inspection is like visual inspection, eddy current testing, and ultrasonic testing can now be automated thanks to robotics advancements, making it fast, reliable, and repeatable.
Many part configurations and work environments make it difficult for operators to perform proper inspections. But sensors and actuators can now be added to robots that can enable them to climb, swim, or even fly. With these capabilities, robotic systems can navigate unsafe environments as well as those that are difficult for humans to access.
