DolphiTech has released its DolphiCam TeamCentre, a software solution designed to offer non-destructive testing (NDT) experts can now create and share inspection procedures with field inspectors around the world.
According to DolphiTech, the need for NDT has risen with the increased use of Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastic (CFRP), however NDT equipment is very expensive and training is both costly and time consuming. DolphiTech’s VP Product and Marketing, Jan Olav Endrerud explains “Today’s NDT solutions simply do not scale. 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 TeamCentre, the company believes 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.
Endrerud concludes “DolphiCam TeamCentre 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 TeamCentre we definitely take the position as leader and innovator in this market.”
