In-process calibration of a non-destructive testing system used for in-process inspection of multi-pass welding
Abstract In multi-pass welding, there is increasing motivation to move towards in-process defect detection to enable real-time repair; thus avoiding deposition of more layers over a defective weldExpand
A flexible robotic cell for in-process inspection of multi-pass welds
Welds are currently only inspected after all the passes are complete, and after allowing sufficient time for any hydrogen cracking to develop. Expand
