Nexxis is proud to announce a new partnership agreement with Dekra, a German-based company providing advanced robotic and sophisticated camera inspection solutions for asset inspection and maintenance.
The partnership will provide Nexxis’ customers in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and Papua New Guinea with complete access to the entire range of Dekra’s products.
The ability to conduct NDT testing using Alternating Current Field Measurement (ACFM) in areas where temperatures might be as high at 500 C, and for extended periods, not only has the potential to dramatically reduce costs, but also removes the problem of cracks closing up when materials cool.
Having a basic understanding of how an ultrasonic thickness gauge works is key to using this vital piece of equipment. Ultra-light, rugged models that take advantage of micro components mean calculating the thickness of a wide range of materials can now be carried out quickly and with a high level of accuracy.
Confined space inspection is being revolutionised through the use of robotics, with equipment such as VT100MK11 Crawler offering advantages such rapid deployment, user-friendly operation and multiple configuration options.
Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), or drones, offer a very real solution for the inspection of confined areas, such as tanks. Traditional inspection of these enclosed spaces is a laborious, expensive and poses many potential hazards.
Legged robotics is a relatively new area of research with the intention of providing autonomous systems that are capable of navigation within extreme environments, difficult terrain and in the most complex of confined spaces.
