Ray Tracing

The WDS RayTrace is an in-house developed vector tool allowing us to find the best probe position for detection of defects in "difficult" geometries such as nozzles and elbows. These positions can then be interpolated to a scan pattern and transferred to the manipulator control system. 

  • Developed by WesDyne Sweden AB
  • Provides information where the UT probe should be positioned in order to target expected defects
  • Tells where a defect is located in complex geometries
  • Creates manipulator motion control patterns for complex geometries
