The rugged laser measuring equipment of QuellTech GmbH offers implementation of high-speed, contact-free inspection procedures even in a fully automated run. Weld seams can be optically examined to 100% giving a visual record. This includes parametric defect highlighting for automatic pass/fail results with live and post-weld measurement for weld defect criteria, HiLo and re-entrant angle.
Pipe end bevels can be inspected in full while simultaneously measuring the ovality, generating fit-up sequencing and external Hilo analysis to reduce time, wastage and improve the integrity of the welds. This information is combined with the internal weld scan as a complete package of data for each weld.
The QuellTech laser sensor family Q4 or Q5 used for these tasks is generally mounted on an arm of a rotational axis, to scan along the complete 360° angle of the internal surface in a sequence of strips.
