Software Filter from GE Provides Faster Image Enhancement for Weld and Casting ApplicationsGE Inspection Technologies GmbH310, Hürth, Germany
Flash! Filters from GE Sensing & Inspection Technologies provide one-click image optimization resulting in faster image enhancement and streamlined inspection workflow. Flash! Filters are available for weld and casting inspections, two core applications for digital X-ray inspections. A plug-in module for GEs Rhythm® Review, Flash! Filters automatically apply enhancements with one button mouse click, eliminating time previously spent adjusting the brightness and contrast settings to obtain the sharpest image. Flash! Filters can also convert flat digital images into a film-like image.
We analyzed hundreds of weld and casting images from various scanners, sources and environment conditions to develop the most optimized solution, providing the fastest image enhancement while decreasing analysis time, said Rick Cuscino, Product Manager for Digital Conversion at GE Sensing & Inspection Technologies.
Following the DICONDE standard, the filters are applied as layers on the image, giving operators the ability to always revert to the raw image, ensuring reliability of the data. Using Flash! Filters saves approximately 10 seconds of analysis time per 5 inches of weld. GEs Rhythm suite of user-friendly software offers advanced image review tools and data management for Remote Visual Inspection, X-ray and Ultrasonic testing methods. Rhythm accepts data and provides application tools for analysis, enhancement, measurement, reporting and storage of received data.
