Genesis has developed a line of Robotic Non-Destructive Inspection Systems.
Our innovative approach to automated UT inspection addresses the increasing demands for 100% inspection of critical aero-structure carbon-fiber composite components. Combining world-class UT Equipment and KUKA High-Accuracy robots, Genesis offers a reliable, highly productive inspection cell.
The NSpect system is designed to inspect both flat and contoured parts in and/or above an immersion tank in either a “Process-to-Part” or manner “Part-to-Process”. The “Process-to-Part” method is the traditional NDI approach where the sensor, or series of sensors, is manipulated along the surface of a fixtured part. In this case, the robot can automatically switch among sensors with the included automatic tool changer on the robot.
The “Part to Process” approach involves the robot automatically manipulating a workpiece in front of a stationary ultrasonic sensor(s). For example, in the case of the small parts, a linear array sensor would be mounted in the tank such that the part would be picked off of its respected tooling nest and submerged during the inspection process. The robot could operate multiple parts without intervention from an operator.
