New software (NDT-ESP) aids flexibility in utilizing NDT-RAM™ for metal component part inspection

January 25, 2006, Cincinnati, OH — THE MODAL SHOP, INC. announces a powerful new software option that allows for automated external setup and template switching for The Modal Shop’s versatile resonant acoustic method (NDT-RAMTM ) systems.  The External Setup Program (NDT-ESP) allows users to change NDT-RAM setups from such sources as a PC, PLC, or robotic arm without human input.  It allows for rapid switching between setup files and data is automatically sent to the appropriate file.

NDT-ESP is ideal for customers that test multiple parts on the same system, have multiple production lines married into one inspection system or have fully automated production lines and require switching NDT-RAM setups automatically based on a production trigger.

All of the NDT-RAM systems are ideal for manufacturers or users of powdered metal parts, castings, or forgings that have substantial inspection cost, require 100% inspection, produce or use safety-critical parts, have substantial scrap costs due to false rejects, or simply want to improve their part quality.

With no part preparation required, this technique can successfully identify internal and external flaws due to cracks, voids, material density, dimensions, porosity and nodularity as well as missed manufacturing processes.
