Software modernises surface damage assessment

Empowering NDT service companies to provide high-value services and industrial assets owners to make optimal maintenance decisions, Creaform is launching a complete NDT software platform that removes interpretation from the equation. The company describes
VXintegrity as the ultimate 3D scanning solution for surface damage assessment. It contains four different modules, intended to tackle any surface analyses, as well as simple metrology applications.

Making it possible to measure up to 80 times faster than manual measuring tools, the new VXintegrity software platform, combined with Creaform’s 3D scanners, represents a good solution to the current shortage of experienced technicians and ageing and/or damaged infrastructures. Moreover, this user-independent technology requires little training and few certifications, which means that technicians can be up and running faster than with other techniques.

This complete NDT solution also enables industrial asset owners to have full confidence in evaluation results and make the best maintenance decisions with the best available data, as it can accurately measure thickness loss on corroded, industrial, complex geometry such as elbows, nozzles, pressure vessel heads, tank floors and valves. With this software platform, a complete analysis of all types of surfaces is now possible.

“The metrology-grade 3D data generated through this software platform can precisely identify small thickness variation between inspections to compare damage progression through time, making it the best, and only, technique sensitive enough to do so on the market,” insists François Lachance, product manager at Creaform. “In addition, the four industry-optimised modules are sure to open up new business opportunities for NDT service providers.”
