Ultrasonic automated testing
Competition and customers requirements provide increasing quality levels of producing elements. Companies are increasing
quality levels of details like: plates, steel construction or welded elements, through quality control systems at production level.
In case of mass production manual testing is impossible because of big costs and small speed. Beside customers very often
demand automated quality control systems. ULTRA Institute developed such system for automated tightness testing of
fuel tanks - UltraBulki.
Manual welds testings, according to European Standards EN 1712, 1714 and newest PN-EN ISO 17640:2011, PN-EN ISO 11666:2011 are time-consuming. Because of that they are not
suitable for fast testing of big number of welds. ULTRA Institute developed automated scanner for welds
testing. Scanner increases speed of welds testing. With usage of scanner, operators needs only to search for imperfections.
Other activities like: imperfictions valuation, sizing, weld valuation and testing documentation are made automatically by
CUD flaw detector with scanner. Scaner provides possibility of fast testing of big number of welds and testing results are
presented as map of detected flaws - Sonograms. Thanks to usage of scanner operator has fast response to
question: Is this weld good according to EN 1712 and 1714?
