5/13 Flaw Detection Gets Smart with Robotic NDT As Seen in Quality Magazine
by Bryan Leach, UniWests

The recent advent of more affordable industrial robots and controls has enabled the development of fully automated eddy current testing systems that improve flaw detection and reduce inspection costs. While manual NDT has been employed for decades on safety-critical components, today robotic eddy current testing is playing an increasingly important role in the achievement of corporate quality assurance objectives. Configurable into virtually any new or existing production line, today’s robotic eddy current testing stations perform at production line speeds, with minimal human intervention.

4/13 Eddy Current Testing - Higher throughput, smaller flaw detection, greater precision, and more cost-efficient NDT As Seen in ASM International by: UniWest

In the world of nondestructive testing (NDT), few areas of failure prediction hold greater consequence than the commercial aerospace industry. Airplanes weighing over 200,000 lb accelerate from 0-150 mph in 90 seconds, fly in hostile weather conditions, and decelerate from 150-0 in another 90 seconds, and repeat the cycle until the landing gear tire treads are worn to their safe limit.

10/4/12 UniWest Tie Bolt Inspection System Outperforms Other Testing Methods for Aircraft

Aircraft wheel tie bolts are extremely safety-critical, as they hold the two halves of the wheel together and must withstand the stress of landing. The landing of the aircraft, as well as the loosening and tightening of the bolts over time, can cause them to stretch and eventually crack. Broken bolts on the flight line often cause delays of departure. That is why airlines continually strive to employ the best available test methods to locate potential problems in the tie bolts.

Recently introduced, UniWest’s Tie Bolt Inspection System using eddy current testing (ECT) is now being used by major airlines as well as numerous aircraft wheel and brake shops that perform testing of aircraft landing gear.
