New ultrasonic testing equipment (UTE) manufactured by Nordinkraft was started up in ?Amurmetal?Nordinkraft Company11, Cherepovets, Russia
In plate mill of «Amurmetal» (Komsomolsk-on-Amur) was started-up UTE «Sever-06-08» manufactured by Nordinkraft for automated non-contact testing of plates.
UTE «Sever-06-08» is intended for automated detection of inner defects of uniformity of the plate and provides continuous scanning of longitudinal edge zones and main metal along the whole width of plate. Testing is carried out by means of non-contact electromagnetic acoustic transducers. The speed of plates during the testing can achieve 1m/s!
As press service of «Amurmetal» reported: «Together with start-up of new UTE our enterprise gets an opportunity to lead its production to the new level of quality».
Main systems of UTE «Sever-06-08» are connected with the single measuring control unit that coordinates its operations, controls data flaws, organizes the process of testing, collection, handling of data, visualization of process, printing and storing of test results.
Rating of uniformity of plates is carried out according to requirements of GOST 22727-88, EN 10160-99, SEL 072, BS 5996, ATMS-435, that is up to the requirements of international standards for plates quality.
