PROline – The easy solution for modernization of ultrasonic inspection systems
In many production lines the same ultrasonic inspection systems are used over the years. Advancing mechanization, automation and digitization of industrial processes increase the requirements for the existing inspection system. The problem: often it doesn´t concern the mechanics or the technology of the ultrasonic application. Rather than that, a modernization of the ultrasonic technology concerning the display, evaluation and documentation of the inspection results is necessary. Especially the communication with modern ERP systems of the customer requires the link to new interfaces and communication protocols as well as increased computing power. The part spectrum to be inspected can increase over the years whereby a technical- or also semi-mechanical extension of the systems will be necessary.
With the PROline product family VOGT Ultrasonics has developed a simple and cost-efficient solution for the modernization of existing ultrasonic inspection systems as well as OEM software solutions in combination with customer mechanics. PROline can flexibly interact with a PLC or ERP interface and offers flexible software modules for optimization and extension of the range of applications of existing systems. By modernization, inspection plans can be part- or inspection specificly expanded. The automatic evaluation, individual inspection report preparation and archiving of results save time and create inspection reliability. A remote connection allows fast updates and flexible customer service of a modern production process. The integration of PROline in existing systems secures an economic and fast part inspection with latest long-term ultrasonic technology.
