TECHNOVOTUM - development and production of equipment and technologies for non-destructive testing (NDT)



The robot manipulator with a set of measuring and flaw-detection tools is the basis of the  robotic measuring system ROBOSCOP VTM-5000/AS for non-destructive testing of shock-traction elements of the rolling stock . The parts intended for diagnosis are loaded onto a specialized mobile platform (cart). On the cart for each part, seats (lodgments) are provided, in order to maintain the repeatability of spatial coordinates of a part location.

ROBOSCOP VTM-5000/AS has a programmed testing technique, it follows the preset coordinates of a test pieceand carries out operations of measurement or flaw detection. Eddy current flaw detection is a modern alternative to out-of-date magnetic-powder diagnostic methods. Based on the results of the inspection, the final protocol is formed, all NDT procedures are performed in accordance with the acting JSC “RZD” regulations.

ROBOSCOP VTM-5000/AS provides:

• automatic connecting / disconnecting of the required probe;

• scanning of a testpiece surface following preset trajectory;

• real time probe position monitoring;

• activation of automatic flaw alarming (gatelevel);

• analysis of the testing results and recording to archive.

Technological advantages:

• strict compliance with the requirements of the technological process;

• the minimum time spent on monitoring;

• precise positioning of the transducers;

various NDT methods combination.
