DolphiCam TeamCenter means scalable and user-friendly NDTDolphiTech AS12, Raufoss, Norway
The release of the new DolphiCam TeamCenter software solution means that non-destructive testing (NDT) experts can now create and share inspection procedures with field inspectors around the world.
Developed by DolphiTech AS, the DolphiCam TeamCenter software solution integrates with the DolphiCam Ultrasound Camera system, enabling true scalable and team-based NDT.
The need for NDT has risen with the increased use of Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic (CFRP). But NDT equipment is very expensive and training is both costly and time consuming. “Today’s NDT solutions simply do not scale,” says Jan Olav Endrerud, VP Product and Marketing at DolphiTech. “When DolphiTech was started in 2009, our vision was to create a mobile, user-friendly and powerful NDT tool for composite materials that even non-experts could use. Our DolphiCam is just that tool.”
With DolphiCam TeamCenter, an NDT expert can generate inspection procedures containing instructions, photos and sample ultrasound images, as well as embedded camera and material settings. The expert can then share these with their inspection teams anywhere in the world. The field inspectors simply hook up their DolphiCam and perform inspections according to the procedure. A report is automatically created upon completion, which can then be sent back to the NDT expert, insurance companies or other interested parties.
“DolphiCam TeamCenter is an innovation in team-based NDT. A team of experts can easily support field inspectors all over the world, with a common set of inspection procedures. We feel confident that this is the way field NDT will develop, and with the DolphiCam TeamCenter we definitely take the position as leader and innovator in this market”, says Endrerud.
Utilizing unique matrix transducer technology, the DolphiCam system is extremely portable, user-friendly and provides crystal clear 2D and 3D images of internal structures in modern, lightweight materials.
