Automating Non-Destructive Testing
Build With Robots partners with Albuquerque-based Vibrant Corporation to automate Vibrant’s Resonance Ultrasound Spectroscopy test systems using collaborative robots. This third generation robot solution uses CoBots to greatly reduce the automation complexity, system cost and integration effort. Notice that this new CoBot automation solution eliminates the safety caging and interlocking required for conventional robots.
Vibrant’s non-destructive testing (NDT) solution collects ultrasonic resonance data and uses advanced pattern recognition and data analytics to inspect aerospace components ranging from engine components to the aircraft bolts shown in the video. This NDT system performs accurate, fast and automated inspections for material variations, geometric variations, and defects that affect structural integrity.
