Machine Learning for NDT, beyond expert systems

inspeccion visual

Attempts have been made for several years now to introduce the breakthroughs made in artificial intelligence in almost all technical areas. Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) was not to be an exception. These inspections analyse the integrity of components or materials by interpreting different signals or images. In this way, an expert in a given type of … Read more

Take a look at the latest type of remote visual inspection


Visual inspection consists of observing the external or accessible surfaces of parts, components or materials, either with the naked eye or using optical instruments. It is the Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) technique par excellence and its physical agent – light – does not cause any damage to the vast majority of materials. Changes in the properties … Read more

Dry ultrasonics. Analogy of the most widely used techniques


As is described in our article “Ultrasonics. Beyond the coupling medium” , dry inspection makes it possible to address the evaluation of components under extreme working conditions, the inspection of complex geometry elements, the reduction of surface contamination on parts and the avoidance of the need to install water circuits in productive machines, also facilitating … Read more

New digitalisation project in the electricity industry

nuevo proyecto

Tecnatom has been selected by the Spanish company Endesa Generación for the performance of a pilot digitalisation project, in this case associated with the predictive maintenance of the main transformer at the San Adriá de Besós combined cycle plant (Spain). As power transformers are the most critical components of any electricity generation, transmission and distribution … Read more

New digitalisation products in Latin America

Tecnatom has been awarded contracts in Chile and Argentina for the monitoring of fossil fuel electricity-generating plants. Pampa Energía, the largest private electricity utility in Argentina, has selected our TecOS SOLCEP  tool for the monitoring of the performance of its plants, and has contracted Tecnatom for the supply, configuration and maintenance of the tool at … Read more

EMAT-The new dawn of ultrasound

In a previous article we explained that it was possible to generate an ultrasonic beam in a material without the need for any part of the inspection system to be in contact with the part to be inspected.  In the case of ultrasounds generated by EMAT, we will make use of electromagnetic phenomena to generate … Read more

Laser ultrasonics one of the best applications for contactless inspection

tecnatom lus laboratorio

In a previous article it was explained that ultrasonics (UT) are habitually used in industry to ensure quality by detecting changes in the properties of both recently manufactured and in-service components. In ultrasonic inspection, high frequency sound waves are transmitted through the material and are picked up after interacting with the different elements of the … Read more

Dry-Coupled Wheel Probes. Beyond the coupling medium

taurus roldana

As was explained in the first article in this series, which dealt with non-destructive testing, ultrasound can be transmitted through a medium, be it gaseous, liquid or solid. However, they experience special difficulty when it comes to passing from one medium to another if these present characteristics as dissimilar as air and metal. For this … Read more

Ultrasonics. Beyond the coupling medium


Non-Destructive testing: the need to see inside Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) is very widely used in different industrial sectors for the analysis of the interior structure and integrity of parts and components without causing them any type of damage. It was during the 1930’s that ultrasonics was first used in industrial applications, more specifically in the … Read more

What is Human Factors Engineering?
