08.08.2019 – At the two-day Kuka in-house exhibition iimotion days in Augsburg, Boll Automation GmbH in cooperation with Automation W+R GmbH presented the collaborative robot RoboNDT – a mobile system for collaborative air-ultrasonic testing of fiber-reinforced plastics.
The RoboNDT convinces by:
- Location- and component-flexible applicability
- Partial automation of the inspection process through the combination of innovative air-ultrasonic inspection and MRK robotics
- Automated classification of detected defects from ultrasonic data
The system is based on an LBR iiwa and uses a 3D sensor for the scanning process, as well as a newly developed air-ultrasonic sensor for the inspection process.
The use of RoboNDT consists of five steps:
