TS247 has a wealth of experience in the development and implementation of NDT/NDE (non destructive testing/non destructive evaluation) systems in a wide range of markets. We can take companies needs from concept through to a full factory tested operational system.
We have developed an ultrasonic evaluation process for the testing of material used in the manufacturing of aerospace components via a technique known as multi zone inspection. Pictured is their latest machine leaving their headquarters for the end customer. The testing machine consists of a stainless steel tank over seventeen metres long, one metre wide and one metre high. The tank is built into a steel framework and has a robot gantry that travels the full length of the machine. The total weight of the machine is 9 tonnes and when it is full of water (required for the ultrasonic’s) this increases to 19 tonnes.
Our skills were fully utilised on this project with all departments making a contribution. Electrical and mechanical design, software development, and motion control engineering. The complete system was constructed in house and tested fully before being shipped to the end customer. The machine conforms to the latest highly stringent aerospace manufacturing standards and is capable of detecting flaws in the grain of the material and imperfections as small as 0.4mm.
Our main clients come from a variety of markets such as First Tier Motor Suppliers, Materials Processing, and Industrial Manufacturing.
