On October 24th 2017, TC Engineering delivered and successfully commissioned the Ultrasonic Aluminum Billet Inspection System at the Rusal aluminium foundry in Krasnoyarsk. InPhase Solutions has been responsible for the design and implementation of the ultrasound technology, while VisionTech has designed and implemented the automation, and TC Engineering has been responsible for the mechanical design and production.
“The aluminum Ultrasonic Inspection System represents an innovation for automated aluminum inspection. It is fast, and can provide full volume scanning for flaw detection in billets of up to 7.8 meter length in less than 100 seconds. It is fully automated, self-diagnosing, and provides automatic reports on detected flaws, but also on billet length and diameter for full control of production volumes”, states CTO Marco M. Voormolen.
